Connected Canon MP610 to Apple Time capsule via USB. My Macbook pro prints wirelessly perfectly, as does my sons Vista Laptop, however my daughters vista laptop and my wifes XP laptop print black fine, but...


Hi richardhaley,
Isee that you are having issues with your Canon MP610 printer.
You mentioned that your printer is connected to an Apple Time capsule via USB and that it works fin on your Macbook and on your sons Vista Laptop but prints the colored shifted to the right on your daughter's Vista and wife's XP Laptop and this is connected via USB.
If I may ask have you tried printing wireless using your daughters Vista Laptop and you wife's XP Laptop to see if the colors are still gonna shifted to the right.
Also you mentioned the drive that the driver you are using is from bonjour but still you have the same problem.
Here is a link where you can download drivers specific for the versions of windows your daughter's Vista and your wife's XP would have, you will need to select exactly the OS operating system for the driver that you need also there is a software for each Operating system as well maybe you can download that as well for both system for you to be able to recalibrate the printer from the 2 machines.
I hope that this will help.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

I have an canon pixma mp480 connected to a windows xp home computer. It work fine. I shared the pinter to the network. I got the windows xp connected to that shared printer, but the windows vista computers...


Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.

Can't connect Xp laptop to 64Bit Vista PC to be able to print across wireless network


yes easy to fix, just share your print driver give it a share name like canonmp780 on the pc it is connected to
then get on your laptop asuming its on your wireless network and in the start bar run this command. \\ your computer name one printer is connected to \ canonmp780.
so if your computer name is windows and your printer name is canonmp780 the run command will be: \\windows\canonmp780 hope this helps and really easiest way to connect to it.

Will a USB2.0 port installed after purchase support Pixma MP610?


Somebody might have been confused or perhaps there is was a different issue as well. USB 2.0 is backward compatible. The printer should work on either, but with decreased performance on the USB 1.0. The USB 2.0 PCI card is a true USB upgrade no matter your original config. Make sure your PC otherwise meets the min requirements for the printer.

Printer Sharing


Hi jammin dave,

There are certainly known issues with sharing a printer installed on an XP machine to a Vista machine. First question is whether you have Windows Live OneCare installed. This in itself causes known sharing problems.
