Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:
Official Canon Drivers and Software
Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS
After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

No problem. These are the links to Canon Support Website where you can download the drivers. There is two versions a 32bit and 64bit. It all depends on which OS u have.
Any questions..I'll be glad to help.

My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.
It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.

Yes, there are additional drivers. See http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp500#DriversAndSoftware . Then select your OS and expand the appropriate sections. The basic driver link is at the top; however the full software may be more useful.
I hope this helps.
