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.

I have just purchased a Dell laptop with Windows 7 home premium installed. I have a Cannon PIXMA MP495 printer, what do I need to do to operate thist printer wirelessly?


If you have a wireless router with a wireless network then -

Configure the IP address your wireless printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but at a higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the your printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:

The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

How to map usb ports USB1, 2, etc.


You don't map the Universal Serial Buss. You just hook all the devices to the connection points (ports). The computer find them by device, MAC address, etc., not by port number. You can hook up to 127 devices to a computer, and the computer will talk to all of them regardless the physical point of connection. That's the reason, you can buy USB hubs with 4 or more connection points that plug into an USB port (how do you map that?).
USB1 - 6 is for you to know how many devices are connected to the computer via USB at a certain time.
So if your printer is configured for USB1, what ever port you plug that printer in, will be USB1.
