Question about Canon imageCLASS MF5550 All-In-One Laser Printer
I just upgraded to Win. Vista, and have not been able to find drivers that are compatible with Vista. Canon says they have not and may not make them....are there any other options out there??
Cannon customer service is no good however i got this mf 5550 and had change to windows vista and im printing with no problem
i tried this better and it works
shut off your computer
disconnect the usb cable to the computer from the printer
a wait 5 minutes connect the usb cable tot he computer from your printer and turn your computer again.
this is what i had done with my desktop and laptop and luckily it works.
buying a cannon product is good but if you got some issue your on your own

Had the same issue. When I contacted Canon they stated that they are not devoting resources to creating new drivers for older hardware. Interestingly in talking to others with HP printers - it seems that much older printers seem to have new drivers that work with Vista.
After all of this I have decided to buy from a different manufacturer (HP) next time around.

If cannon somehow can only have time to work on newer drivers and not concentrate on the imageCLASS MF5550 vista driver, I will never buy a cannon product again "ever"

Called and emailed canon to complain. they said in email that they will let the "higher-ups" know my concerns but as of yet they have decided to not look into making vista drivers so they can concentrate on newer machines.

Sadly if printer manufacturer doesnt support Vista then you are out of luck. Sometimes if a printer has a big userbase, for example design studios or printing firms. Then a 3rd party might produce unofficial drivers. I have had a look but cannot see anywhere that are offering Vista drivers.
