Re: printer wont connect to my computer



MG2500 and W10... 


What driver did you use to install the printer?


I suggest this one


The driver requires that you run it  first, before connecting the printer.  Did you do that?  You then connect the printer to an available USB port and power it on.  Detection should occur. 


If you are stuck, this might help.  See page 190
