Question about Canon LBP 800 Laser Printer
Hi, new laptop running Vista Home Premium, bought USB to Parallel converter cable (Belkin) but can't get the printer working? Downloaded latest (W2000/XP) driver from Canon but to no avail. Any ideas out there?
To solve this problem i used VMWare with Windows XP (also Ubuntu worked fine):
1. Install LBP-800 on vistual PC use real LPT1 and virtual one.
2. Set Cannon LBP-800 share mode.
3. Setup workgroup network: my real computer and virtual.
4. Install LBP-800 on my real PC as a network printer

And my reply...
Dear Canon Support Centre, Thanks very much, you really do deserve the name Support. In my original email I said I knew there was no driver available at present, but could you tell me If or When you might make one available. Therefore I already Knew that you didn't have a driver available for this printer. And it only took you 3 days to tell me this. Now back to original question which still remains un-answered; (and please concentrate) When or If you are going to make a driver available for the LBP-800 ??? Thank You Aaron Pain.
