Hi, I just got my first 3d printer, an Ultimaker2, and I'm trying to get it to print through USB from my PC. I can open an stl file in Cura and see it, I can also see it downloaded and an estimated print time, but when I hit the "Print with USB" button nothing happens. It seems that my PC is not communicating with the printer. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Don't use print through usb. It's not officially supported. Yeah you can get it to work with some tinkering, but i've never had a lot of succes with it. Sticking to the SD card is a better option imho.
