    Just like any cable, it would be possible for a USB cable to break.

    Do you have another USB cable you could try?

    Can you try a different USB port?

    Yesterday the right USB port on my PB b0rked out. It had shut itself off, save power, and a restart fixed it right up. My Nerd said that it was because I was drawing too much power from it, so it shut it down.

    Thankfully cables are fairly free from problems, but sometimes they do go wrong.

    Before trying other things, I would replace the cable.

    Not yet, but I'm giving some serious thought to obtaining one. :)

    Yes I've tried both USB ports. :)

    I should mention that I strangly get the SAME error message when I try to print with the USB cable disconnected from the Mac. :confused:
