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..

Re: will a USB2.0 port installed after purchase support...
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.

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.
Thank you for your promptitude. Today I solved my problem. Was a cable connection problem. Cable incompatibilit or all 3 cables used before are damaged. Tuday I buy an other new cable and SUCCESS!!!: my computer see de printer ("new hardware found" when attach usb cable) , create virtual usb port, install the drivers (I have the drivers downloaded from the Canon web site) and printer is working fine. Anyway, thank yow again for your support!
1)right click the my computer icon 2)click properties and then click hardware n go to device manager. 3)uninstall all usb ports and then scan for hardware changes 4)ur pc will detect your printer and ask for printer drivers 5)re load drivers and your pc will communicate with your printer 6)for reloding install the cd follow the instructions on the screen and click next 7)restart when the printer is loded.connect the wires and cords properly
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.
