Question about Canon BU-20 (13803055436) Print Server

4 Answers

Bluetooth I was about to buy a Canon BU-20 bluetooth printer adapter for my Pixma MP500, then I took a second look at it. Maybe I'm stupid but my printer has a square type USB port and the adapter has a flat normal flat USB plug - this looks a bit like a sqare peg in a round hole. So what am I missing? Both are made by Canon and the BU-20 is recomended for my printer by Canon, how does this work? Ive checked the Canon help files and they tell me nothing. Andy

Re: bluetooth

The usb adapter plugs in on the front right hand side in the normal usb socket not on the back where the usb printer cable goes. from memory i think it is behind a little door where the card reader is.

Re: bluetooth

The adapter is plugged in front USB connector, not the one for the cable, from behind.

Re: bluetooth

My MP500 has a normal flat USB plug in.  Turn off your printer and just try plugging in a normal USB cable into that slot...You can use the printer cable if you want. Haven't rec'd the BU20 yet, but don't think it will be a problem.
