Default USB Device not recognized

I got a new printer (Lexmark E250d) which doesnt come with a USB cable so I was temporarily using a short one that I used for my external HDD which was working fine. Today I went and got a longer USB cable and when I plugged it into my printer I get a popup saying "USB Device Not Recognized" so i rebooted the comp and the printer is not communicating at all with the comp through the new USB cable I got. I tried changing ports and the same problem keeps occuring. How can I get it working?

that's odd. the USB cable could be faulty. it may also be worth trying reinstalling the drivers. these are pretty generic answers and they may not help, but i haven't got anything better :/

Tried Reinstalling the Printer drivers still same problem, even changed cords back again and then it started working but with the new USB cable it keeps saying it cannot be recognized. Are there different types of USB cables sold?

PROBLEM SOLVED - cable was either too long or faulty. Got a new one works fine now.
