ImageRunner ADV C5030 - cannot connect to computer AT ALL

Apprentice

Hello, I hope someone can help me

 

I have a second hand C5030 imagerunner advance.

I am struggling to connect to my laptop (running Windows 10) at all. I have no network so am using a USB lead directly from printer into laptop.

 

My problem is that I have downloaded the driver software, but when it gets to the point where is has to find the printer, it cannot detect it.  In device management, the IR-Adv is showing up as an 'unspecified device' (see picture below).

UPDATE

 

I CAN CONNECT FROM A MAC NO PROBLEM. DRIVER DOWNLOADED FINE AND PRINTED FINE, aah!

 

 

Some notes:

- I have checked my USB port and USB cable on another printer and both are fine.

- I have tried to add the printer through Windows 'Add a Printer' > older printer > USB port. But the C5030 is not on their list of Canon printers (yes i updated the list)

- I have checked that all USB function is turned on on the printer settings

- The C5030 is photocopying fine

- I have installed and de-installed the printer driver from Canon website numerous times.

- the previous owner of the machine printed using a cable like this and it worked fine (with older laptop)

 

Is this a windows problem?

what can I do?

Thanks for any help you can give.
