Question about Canon PIXMA MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon MP510 recognised as disk drive by Windows Vista

Hi, I have a Canon MP510 which caused no problems in Windows XP. I have since bought a computer running on Windows Vista. Initially certain functions (ink levels etc.) were not available so I downloaded the appropriate drivers and solved this problem.

I still have 3 other problems.
1) If I switch the printer on before booting up the ASUS M2N-MX the computer will not boot up.
2) When I switch on the printer after booting up, Vista recognises it as an extra USB disk drive - which cause problems in certain other programmes.
3) I have several computers on a private network. If the printer is attached to an XP computer it is available to users. If it is attached to the Vista computer, other users get an error message.

Hi!

The warning that you received was an Operating System incompatibility driver. You must download the correct driver for the specific Operating System like Windows XP, Vista or Mac.

For Windows XP, download the driver HERE

For Windows Vista 32-bit, download the driver HERE

For Windows Vista 64-bit, download the driver HERE

For Mac, download the driver HERE

Note: In using Vista driver, you should identify if you are using Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. Go to Control Panel > System to check for version of Vista that you are using.

The links contain the software and driver for your printer.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Probleme d´utilisation entre canon MP160 et vista.


You have a driver problem that may be incompatible with the Vista windows. Contact your manufacturer and see if they have a driver that is compatible with windows Vista for your particular model. I run into this all the time in the field where I find that the printer drivers are not working with Vista.

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges


Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.

Dear mamachubs, Firstly, make sure that you have the right printer driver for your operating system. Suppose, if your printer driver is for windows xp, then that driver might not be support by windows vista. Secondly, if your printer doesn't support plug and play, then please install it manually without connecting your printer. GGOD LUCK
