Vista laptop and canon pixima mp610 printer

I just got a new canon pixima mp610 printer and cant get the driver to install on my vista laptop. I first installed it successfully on my windows XP desk top then when I try to install it on the vista laptop it almost completes the instillation process but then indicates it cant detect the printer and the proccess fails. I am using the same usb cable that worked with the XP, the XP is not conected, the vista does detect the printer for a few seconds then it looses it I have the same problem. Any solutions anyone? If I can't resolve this I am going to have to send my printer back :(
Unfortunately I dont have time to reinstall / replace Vista

    Thanks, I have tried this but still no joy.



    The drivers install, but when I plug the printer in I get a USB Device not Recognised error.



    If I go to the Device Manager the printer is listed as an unknown device.



    If I look at the driver details it says o driver has been loaded for this device.



    If I open properties and update driver automatically it tells me it windows determines driver software is up to date.



    If I Manually browse to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\mp610pr.inf_654ed769

    which installs when you run the .exe it still says the drivers are up to date.



    If I uncheck show compatible hardware and select Canon MP370 (where is the closest in the list) and then click have disc and point to the driver. I get a message saying the folder you specifed does not contain a compatible driver for your device.



    Any further assistance greatfully received.

    I have finally managed to fix this.

    If I add a USB extension to the end of my printer lead and then plug it into my laptop it all works fine - weird!

    Probably a contact not quite making :)

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,
mvincentc

After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Canons600 keeps telling me to turn on my enable bidirectional support in the printers properties dialog box


Hi,

Not much to go on, but in printer properties, in ports tab, you'll see an option (second last) called 'enable bidirectional support'. Make sure it's ticked.
