I need a driver for windows vista for my printer BJC-85

They only support up to windows xp
I found this information on a forum.....

Canon does not write modern Vista drivers for a printer that old. That leaves only one other source and that's the actual Windows Vista os. If it's not included then you cannot use this printer in Vista. t

You have to run the Add New Printer wizard to find out if this printer is supported by the Vistamag-glass_10x10.gif os.

Will a bjc-85 work with vista?

The immediate response is that there is no Vista driver available for this printer from Canon.

However, that is not the end. Check the Vista printers and see if the driver is already built into Vista or Vista may supply a generic driver for older models of printers.

For a definite answer, you might want to call the Canon Support Center and get the Canon answer on this.

Trying to hookup bjc 80 to acer aspire 4730z running vista, don't have disc but am hooked up via usb.

you need the printer driver for vista in order to be able to print out. But Canon does not offer drivers for XP and Vista for bjc-80, however you can manually install the driver for BJC-85 and get the printing function going, but the scanner cartrige does not work through USB.

BJC -85 Setup Software wil not download to Vista...not compatable.....What can be done to se the Printer/Scanner on my computer with Vista.

As the link ( in Mike's solution states, "Driver included with OS. Download not required.", i.e. Vista comes with a driver for the BJC-85 so you don't need to download one. I've just connected my BJC-85 to my new Vista machine and the printer was detected and drivers loaded automatically.

Bjc 85 vista driver???

Canon does not list a driver for Vista. You can see this at Cannon's web link here.

& why here.

There is one other way to get a driver for vista. (Maybe). Microsoft has a program that you install. It scans your PC (make sure your printer is turned on)!
It checks your PC to see if it can run Vista. (even though you have it installed).
It also will show you at the end what driver software you need for vista. Including your printer & will give you a link to download the proper driver.
You have nothing to loose.
Once the vista program has finished & you download any missing drivers, just delete the program from Add/Remove programs in your control panel. Microsoft's Vista checker program link. Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor.

Good Luck.
