Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers etc.

If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the Hardware Make/model and Operating System you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.
However you can download the same by visiting the 'software downloads' section of the website of the hardware brand you have purchased. You just need to Google the name of the brand and visit their website and search for the download section.

If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

I am trying to install the Canon PIXMA MP780 onto Windows 7 and it says it is not compatible. I have downloaded the driver for this version but it is still saying your Windows version is not supported by the setup program. Any suggestions?

Dear User,

You need to install the correct drivers according to your Operating System, befor you start using it. You can install the drivers as :

Go to start menu, devices and printers, and click add printer.
Choose " add a local printer" then in "use an existing port" drop down menu, choose one of your "virtual USB ports".
Click Windows Update and wait (it has to download and update the list of drivers which takes some time,so be patient).
Now choose among the available list of Drivers. You are done.


You can Dowloand Drivers from Manufacturer's website. Visit Canon PIXMA MP780 Driver Download Page.

My son has given me a Canon Pixma MP 780 all in one but there is no user manual or setup CD Rom and no usb cable. where can I obtain these items please?

1) Printer USB (A->B) cable - this can be purchased almost anywhere, where computer accessories are being sold. If you want a cable longer than 5 feet (1.5m) then go for a better quality, thicker cable.
2) Printer manual and drivers/software - you can download them from Canon support website. Go to this address:
choose your operating system from the drop-down list on the right and you will be presented with available downloads.
For starters, I would recommend downloading the manuals (they are far towards the bottom of the page). When you get them, you will know better what software you want.

For basic printer operation you will need to download and install the printer driver (and updater if present).
For scanning and additional functions you will have to download also the Easy PhotoPrint application, perhaps others.

Please note: first install the driver, and then plug in the USB cable - most probably you will be prompted to do so during installation.

Good luck and please come back with a testimonial if helped :)

software for canon pixma mp780

Not knowing where you are from, I can only give the following help.

Do a Google search using the following text:

pixma mp780 +driver

Note the "+driver" (no space between the "+" and the word "driver").

This will bring up a lot of sites where you can dowload the drivers.
