I'm having the same problem mate. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and was forced to download the updated drivers. But that didn't resolve the problem either. (Yes, I was having the problem before I upgraded).
Have you recently changed/upgraded you operating system, e.g. XP to Vista or Windows 7? If so, you snould go to canonusa.com and get the drivers for the new operating system. Even if you have not, I suggest at least downloading and reinstalling the driver from there instead of from the 8 year old disc. Other than this, you should call support at Canon and ask them how to do a "cold reset" or "restore factoy settings" on the printer.
You'll more than likely need to go to the manufacturers website to download the drivers for the Operating system you've migrated to...even if its the same you'll still need to download the printer driver onto your new computer
put the hammer down and step away from the printer lol. The problem you are having is directly related to the computer not "seeing" or recognizing the the printer. Sure you installed the software and drivers probably not the right ones. With Vista you have to use Vista specific drivers.
1. make sure you are using the correct print driver. 2.check that printing preferences are set correctly in said drivers. 3. if these suggestions don't work, then make sure your application settings are set correctly, and order the most recent firmware dimm you can find. this machine cannot be flashed and in order to upgrade the machine "BIOS", you must install a new firmware dimm onto the emod (electronics module). Good Luck!
Once it is installed I suggest that you open system preferences (found by clicking the apple in the top left) and go to print and fax and delete and readd the printer so it will pull from the most recent drivers.
