Canon bjc 80 printer- no driver- ibm thinkpad laptop- compatible?

Just rec'd my eBay Canon BJC 80 printer.... no driver.... tried to hook it up to my IBM Thinkpad laptop (Windows '98). Bought adaptor and parallel USB cable separately... all hooked up... This model BJC printer not listed on the 'printer list' for Canon printers in the "add printer" list. Directs me to find a "compatible printer" amond my printer documents to click on for the install..... I HAVE NO printer documents!

Please help? !!! Will I have to throw out this printer and the adaptor and start with another system??? I'm a dinosaur and only "know" BJC 2110 Canon printers !!! Sorry !

You can download the software from Canon.

Here is the page to download the driver from:

BJC Support

Click on the "Drivers & Downloads" tab. Select your operating system from the dropdown menu. (Windows 98)

Click on the red link for the driver BJ_v397.exe.

When the download window opens, select "Save" and select a location you know how to access after the download. For an easy way, save it to your Desktop.

After the download, connect the printer, turn it on. Then run (doubleclick) the file you saved.

Trying to hookup bjc 80 to acer aspire 4730z running vista, don't have disc but am hooked up via usb.


you need the printer driver for vista in order to be able to print out. But Canon does not offer drivers for XP and Vista for bjc-80, however you can manually install the driver for BJC-85 and get the printing function going, but the scanner cartrige does not work through USB.

BJC -85 Setup Software wil not download to Vista...not compatable.....What can be done to se the Printer/Scanner on my computer with Vista.


As the link (http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=OSCompatibilitySupportAct&keycode=vistadr&fcategoryid=230&modelid=6620) in Mike's solution states, "Driver included with OS. Download not required.", i.e. Vista comes with a driver for the BJC-85 so you don't need to download one. I've just connected my BJC-85 to my new Vista machine and the printer was detected and drivers loaded automatically.

Have Toshiba laptop with XP and Canon BJC-80; can these work together?


There is no driver available from Canon for Windows XP (see here).

There is no driver available for your printer on Windows XP, the only drivers on google are either viruses or spyware software, do not install any of them.

Canon BJC 2000 question-1284 to usb


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} USB to Parallel conversion requires translation by XP and Vista's 'hardware interleave' software as well as the USB device manufacturers driver. The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
TIPS:
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.
