If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software


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.

SOURCE: Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible

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.
Fast Forward:
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.

SOURCE: Canon pixma all in one mp500 error code 6A00

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.

Error code 5010

Canon only lists three 4-digit error codes for the MP500: 1700, 1851, and 1856. After much research and finding many other MP500 owners getting this same strange code, I have come to conclude that it's the code of DEATH. Sometimes you may get strange codes if using compatible ink cartridges. Unless you can get the printer to reset and clear, the only other thing to try is to go back to the Canon driver download page and reload the correct driver:

Will not scan... Apparently, the scanner with this canon printer (Prixia MP500) will not work with Windows Vista. What can I do?

Your machine is compatible with Windows Vista. Uninstall whatever drivers you currently have installed, then download and install the drivers from this link. Be sure and also install the MP Navigator (listed under Software), which provides the scanner interface program.

Can't get it to scan

The scanner part of the MP500 uses a different program to the printer driver...

Recommend you go to the Canon website and download the Navigator software for your printer model.. Install and then run it... This program is what you scan from... or any other TWAIN compliant (compatible) program.

Canon Pixma MP500

This is the start of the fun with vista. I gives the error message "known compatibility issues" with any none MS software. It does give you the option to install anyway. Do this before plugging in the printer or vista will install it's own driver and it wont work.
the software will tell you when it is safe to plug in the printer.

you can get the vista driver @:

Mp 500 printer driver software

Try the Canon website for updated drivers.

If they don't have one, try using the compatibility wizard.

Download the latest driver available from the canon web site

To open the program compatibility wizard
1. click the Start button
2. click Control Panel
3. click Programs
4. click Use an older program with this version of Windows
5. browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The wizard is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
