Question about Canon PIXMA MX300 All-in-One Printer

2 Answers

My PC doesn´t recognize my Canon Pixma MX300

I have exactly the same issue. Once I had installed the software for the printer then one day, out of the blue the PC stopped recognizing the printer (Canon Pixma MX300)I have changed ports, reinstalled the drivers, changed the cable... many stuff and still no luck.

One friend told me that the Windows Vista tends to have that (out the many) bugs... Any ideas? It´s really frustrating having all things in order and just not been able to solve the issue..
