This type of error indicates 1 of 2 things:

1. The original file may be corrupt or modified. Copy the contents of the original file and paste them into a new file. Try printing the new file.

2. Replace the faulty USB cable with another USB cable.
Please let me know what happens.
Thank you.

1 seems to have been the culprit; never had this occur previously with a printer, but you've solved the glitch.
