    well just to comment, i also had problems with some printers not being compatible with vista. its a very long process and sometimes we need to wait for the manufacturer to provide new drivers for the printers to become compatible.

I have a canon MF5550 printer that I am trying to use with Windows Vista. There is no compatible printer that I can find. What is recommended?


Canon isn't supporting this printer for Vista. You can try using the driver for XP. Available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/imageclass_series/imageclass_mf5550?selectedName=DriversAndSoftware#DriversAndSoftware
You may need to use the Compatibility Mode on the installer as well as the driver. (Right click on the .exe and select Properties. Then go to the Compatibility Tab and check the box for the Run this program in Compatibility Mode and choose XP in the adjacent drop down.) Then right click again on the .exe and choose Run as Administrator to make sure the UAC allows the installer to work.

I hope this helps.

(a generic printer driver may install when you plug in the printer without installing the software first. If this happened you should uninstall that driver before trying the Canon version. If the Canon driver doesn't work, the generic printer driver in Vista will probably let you print but you may lose the scanner features. Please note that the buttons may or may not work to launch the software on the computer. Try opening the software and initiating scans from the computer.)

Will not scan... Apparently, the scanner with this canon printer (Prixia MP500) will not work with Windows Vista. What can I do?


Your machine is compatible with Windows Vista. Uninstall whatever drivers you currently have installed, then download and install the drivers from this link. Be sure and also install the MP Navigator (listed under Software), which provides the scanner interface program.

Cant install drivers on Vista


Try installing the drivers in compatibility mode, check the vista help by pressing f1 and look for compatibility wizard then try installing it at this mode, if it still wouldn't install, you need to to the manufacturers website and get a new driver specifically for vista...
