How can I install the mp470 printer onto my laptop without the installation cd? It has been lost and cannot be located but I need a printer!
Turn on your laptop and let it finish loading the desk top. Then turn on your printer (but dont connect it to your laptop yet). After the printer has powered up, connect it to your laptop. Watch the laptop screen on the lower right hand side to see if it acknowledges the printer now connected and automatically searches for the necessary drivers. If it does, then follow the prompts and it will tell you when its finished and the printer is ready to use.
If you connect the printer and the pc does not acknowledge that it has been connected, then you will need to download the software to run the printer from Canon's website. Just go there and enter your printer model and download the software for free.
Make sure you install the software without the printer connected to your pc. Connect the printer afterwards for best results.
