Re: connection

Hi, I have windows vista (home/ non64) and have tried to connect the mx310. When I install drivers from the companies website, and use the disc that came with the printer no connection happens. I've tried other printer cords (usb) and dif usb ports just in case. The fax connection is recognized however. Not sure why at the end of installation it does not find the printer connection, does anyone know the solution to this?

Re: connection

Nope, the Canon printers don't come with a USB cable.  You have to supply it yourself.  I just used the one from my previous printer.

Canon MX310 - I'm trying to connect this printer to my network. Currently, I have the printer connected to an Airport Express but when I try to print from my iMac, I get a message that the printer is...

Adkinsdave, keep in mind that often having someone remotely connect to your computer with you and perform this task is easier than trying to walk you through steps and potentially missing a step. With that being said, the Airport Express was meant to make setting up a WiFi network in your own home a breeze.
We need to first determine if your Canon PIXMA MX310 has a Mac driver. According to the Downloads page at, there are several Mac drivers available for OS X, 10.5 and 10.6: - simply choose your OS on the pulldown from that website. Once your computer has the driver it needs to communicate with the printer, you can use your Airport Express to connect to the printer.
Obviously, make sure the printer is turned on and once you go through the Airport Express connect guide you should be printing in no time.
Let us know if there are still issues.

Canon mx310 feeds paper w/out printing

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I cannot insert a scan to my ms publisher from my canon mx310.

You should have a power lead that you plug into the mains (5 amp fuse) and the back of your printer. The other lead should be a USB 2.0 cable that plugs into the back of your printer and into the usb port on your computer. If you go on to the Cannon web site, you may be able to download the manual, it may be in pdf form or winrar. I trust this information will be of help.
