[Bug 35638] Re: Printer is not detected properly over USB

I checked the Brother specs for MFC-7420.   It has a parallel interface 
as well as the USB.   Try the parallel.  My Brother HL-1440 printer 
wouldn't work with USB interface, but it works well with the parallel.  
Until someone figures out the problem with USB and Brother printers, I 
suggest the parallel interface as a work-around.
