Question about Canon imageCLASS MF4150 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer won't work with new computer

I have a new Dell Vostro 410 running Xp pro, sp 3 and am dismayed to discover that my MF 4100 will not work with my new computer. I've reinstalled the drivers and downloaded driver updates. I also have attached the printer directly to the computer via usb. Anything else to suggest?

Oddly, the MF 4100 works just fine with an MacPro running Leopard. My Canon color printer (iP4300) works fine with both machines.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks, Faith

I don't understand why my approach worked, but it did. Having tried all of the reasonable and obvious things, I downloaded an update of the Canon toolbox, which has to do with scanner operations rather than printing. Still, once I did this, I was able to use the MF4100 laser printer with my new computer.

With Win7 Pro, you can download and install two programs from Microsoft. You need Virtual PC and XP mode. Download and install them in order from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx . You will have to assign an amount of memory to dedicate to the XP computer during the setup. Then open the program and install your laser printer to the new virtual XP computer on your Win7 machine as you normally would install the printer to XP. If you need the drivers, they are available here: http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx?downloadtype=Driver&category=HomeOfficePrintersFaxMachines&model=AL-1661CS& .

However, your files can't be shared directly. You will need to save them to external media (optical disc or flash drive) and then transfer them.

I hope this helps.

Windows 7 has drivers for that printer in it's database. If you manually add the printer by going to Start>Devices and Printers>Add Printer you should then be able to select the driver from the Windows driver database.

Alternately you can download the latest drivers from the link below. You will just need to choose the operating system depending if it is a 32/64 bit edition of Windows 7. If you're not sure right-click on Computer from the start menu and go to properties.

You can download the drivers from Dell's support pages for some OS's (I see a WinXP, Vista 32-bit and Win2K.) If your new computer came with Win7, you may not have much luck unless you use a work-around. Dell's site indicates that the Vista driver doesn't work in Win7. You can try the compatability mode to install the driver (download, extract the files to a new folder, find the .exe file and right click on it. Choose Properties and then the Compatability tab. Check the box for Run as and choose the correct OS version. Then right click again and choose Run as administrator.) Alternatively, Win7 Pro and Ultimate can run a virtual XP computer (on some computers). It takes two downloads and installation of the programs from Microsoft. Then install the printer using the XP driver from Dell.
The drivers are available here: (long URL)

I hope this helps.

I have a dell 946 all in one printer... everything works but the scanner... I just purchased a new computer that has vista and my old computer had xp... worked fine on old puter... any suggestions


You need a new driver from Dell that funtions with Vista. If you have Vista X64 OS then this function may not be available for a while longer as the driver for the scanner is still in development. There is a significant difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

I'm running into networking problems with my Vista X64 OS and a printer on my home network that connects through XP Pro on a desktop computer with a 32-bit OS.

A Windoze Vista 32-bit laptop has no problems with this printer.

Canon MF 4350d Wont install


Almost the exact same problem. New 4350d Canon printer trying to connect it with Dell 8300 with XP. The computer says it does not recognize. Tried everything - reinstall drivers, download drivers, tried every USB port, swapped cables, spoke with Canon support and finally took the printer back and got a new one (Canon support person decided the USB board must be bad). New machine - same old problem.
