Question about Canon PIXMA MP610 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

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

I have a Dell Dimension 4400 running Windows XP Pro. It came only with USB1.0 ports. I have installed a PCI card with four USB2.0 ports. Will these ports support connectivity for a Pixma MP610 multifunction unit? Somewhere recently I read that USB2.0 ports other than what comes on a new PC will not support the Pixma MP610. This was written by a MP610 purchaser who discovered the problem. I haven't been able to find the message again..

    Here is Canon's reply to the same question:
    While it may be possible to use the PIXMA MP610 with the USB add on
    card, Canon does not support any of its units when they are connected in
    this manner.

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.

    With that response, you might want to check your other options... New PC or different printer. I've heard of devices not working properly through an external USB hub, but I can't imagine what the problem would be using an internal card.

you might need to fiddle around with the usb virtual printer port configuration , when you add printer. when adding a printer, uncheck the install automatically tick box, then on the NEXT page click on the drop down list of "use the following port" and try virtual port. it might work.

Dell 922 aio printer


it's unusual to have same problem if completely uninstalled printer(removing printer, then uninstalling,after which use printer installation cd then re connect printer when prompted). If you have a spare usb port install software then connect printer to a different usb port. Lastly try; go to printers and faxes folder>right click on printer icon>properties>advanced, then click the radio button 'Print Directly to the Printer' and see if it prints. Also make sure this printer is set to default printer Try an updated driver, if any,from the Lexmark web site, as they are the same printer without the Dell logo. Your rating is appreciated.
