I checked Canons website and the drivers shipped with your printer ARE compatable.

So my best idea as to what your problem is, is that Vista's User Account Controls is being overprotective again. To resolve this open windows explorer and browse the driver disc that came with your Printer. Then find the installation executable (Usually a file in the first level of the disc with an exe or com extension) right click on this file and select "Run as admin"

and this should give your driver the "Security clearance" ;) it needs to execute properly

Hope this helps you

Hi
I think the setup doesn't work on your computer becaue of the system you are using.
I see you are using Vista, which presents many problems concerning Drivers of new devices.
I think you should check the website of the Printer, so you can consult the download page, and try downloading a driver supported by Visat.
That's all!

Vista compatibility with canon i960 printer


Here is a link to the updated drivers for Vista. You will see in the first section where you can select your operating system (OS). Click the down arrow and select Vista. Now in the box called "Drivers" click on the red .exe file. It will display a new page. Scroll down to the bottom and click on the "I agree" Button. This will start the download process. Click Run, wait for it to download and click run again. This will start the install process. This should fix your problems.

Canon i960 printer will not print magenta color


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
