Eventually, I had tried to download drivers from online. Once or twice I used the one that was the same as the original driver but it reacted the same way. I thought it really was an issue with the usb connection but when I used vuescan it had worked completely fine. I didn't like the ugly watermark all over the place on my drawings saying "Buy VueScan now!" obviously since I wanted to use it for my drawings to put up on my art blog. Photoshopping the watermarks off took forever over my multi-color marker art. Now, because I know the scanner(/printer/copier) is completely connected what can I do about the driver?

Also the printer part works perfectly fine, if that may help.
