Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This problem seems to appear if you have gone from Windows XP to Windows Vista.
My computer got very infected with over 250 viruses (I'm convinced due to "Limewire") anyway I had to get a new computer and I have found that now my scanner on the Canon MP830 will not scan properly, even though when plugging in, it automatically installed what was required (or so I thought) The solution, go to www.canon.com.au (if in the Pacific Region) or www.canon.com , run your mouse over Support, then click on "Driver Downloads". In the "Enter model name of your canon product" type MP830, then click the small go button to the right. Click on the first link, then click on "Drivers/Support". In the setup box, click Driver Downloads. Now a second window will appear, in this window you need two of the downloads, the first being number 5. MP830mp Driver Ver.1.10 (windows vista,xp,2000) click on this then scroll down until you see a small box saying "I have read and understood the information above", tick this box. Now a red "download" appears; click on this. So it is easy to find, save to desktop. Now click the back button and follow the same steps to download number 7. MPNavigator Ver.2.22.
At this stage you may want to turn on your printer and re-start your computer. Now double click on the mp830vst1 icon on your desktop and follow procedure. After this is done then double click on the mpnmp830 icon and follow procedure. You should then re-start your computer and hopefully like me; it now scns correctly. Good luck
Most items produced before windows 7s came along will not operate on that particular operating system
