Hi,
Adding a printer in Vista is fairly similar to the process used in Windows XP, with only a few subtle differences. If your new printer is connected to a USB port, it will be automatically detected and you won’t have to do anything further. Vista will automatically install the printer drivers and configure the printer for you. The logical printer will appear within the Printers folder where you can make any changes to its configurable properties. In some cases, you may have to manually install the printer using the Add Printer Wizard. Once you physically attach the printer to your computer and turn it on, you can complete the steps listed below.

  1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
  2. Click Hardware and Sound then Printers.
  3. Click Add a printer. This launches the Add Printer Wizard.
  4. Click Add a local printer.
  5. Use the drop down arrow to select the port. Click Next.
  6. Select the Manufacturer of your printer and the model. Click Next. If your printer is not listed, click the Have Disk button. You’ll need to locate the manufacturer-supplied drivers on your computer or disk.
  7. Type in a name for the printer. This is the name that will appear under the printer icon in the Printers folder. Click Next.
  8. If you want to print a test page, click the Print a test page button. Click Next.
  9. Click Finish at the Summary window.
To download the drivers, Please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Select the operating system you are using and click on the download to download the driver.

Epson stylus photo r340 can't connect!


It shows on Epson's website that it supports Windows Vista 32-bit but it did not tell if it support SP2. It only means that it doesn't since you are encountering error on your computer.

Try to install it on another computer that is running Vista 32-bit SP1. If it works then it only means that the drivers are working but not compatible with Vista 32-bit SP2 yet.

Hope this helps. Thank you and goodluck on your troubleshooting.

MP210 driver does not work with ASUS LAPTOP WITH Vista


On Canon's support page for this printer PM210 Support there are 3 different driver files available. One is for XP and Vista 32-bit systems, one for XP 64-bit systems, and one for Vista 64-bit systems. If you know what system you have select it in the drop down menu and download and install it.

I have a Canon MP210 all in one printer and I am running on Vista Home Premium. I have downloaded the latest driver for this model. I am experiencing data transfer problems, sometimes the printer works...


There's an incompatibility issue with the Vista operating system updates and the Canon MP210.

  • Booted in Safe mode with only the print driver loaded - printer worked
  • Tried disabling all services except Microsoft services - Printer messed up
  • Reinstalled Vista from scratch (what a pain!!) with no updates - printer worked
  • Installed SP1 - Printer messed up
  • Uninstalled SP1 - printer worked
  • Installed Automatic Updater without SP1 - Printer messed up

MultiPass MP370


See this link. Microsoft acknowledges that Vista may keep some scanners from working (especially since, in your case, the printer is working). They have made a hotfix available for this issue, but based on the dates, I'm pretty sure this hotfix was incorporated into Service Pack 1. If you don't have SP1, you may want to try downloading and installing it.
