Epson Stylus CX6000 prints but won't scan in Vista. Works in XP

Sometimes the newer print drivers don't do everything the older ones do. make sure you have a Vista print driver, and that the Vista print driver has that function (my HP Vista driver wouldn't scan for about the first year until HP finally updated the driver) Make sure you have the latest release of the vista print driver. if the problem is the vista print driver, sometimes you can get lucky by running/installing an XP driver on a Vista machine, in XP compatibility mode (right click, compatibility)

Pixma MP500 will not print in black

Presumably you have just upgraded from XP to Vista. I think the old XP printer driver may still be in effect or Vista has given the printer a generic driver with no advanced properties. Have you tried completely removing the old driver, deleting the printer then installing the printer and new driver from scratch? Else try going to the printer device properties and update driver then direct the updater to the downloaded files.

I need to install/update my Canon Pixma iP1700 driver but everytime I run the supposed correct driver/update it constantly fails. This printer worked perfectly on my old printer with Windows XP but I...

Did you do a upgrade to vista from xp? Or is the computer with vista a different computer? The reason why I ask is if you did an upgrade the old drivers and software for xp may still be in the system. The first thing I would do is go into the device manager and remove the printer and un-install any software for the printer. Re-boot the computer and windows vista should detect the new hardware. I would let vista check online for the driver and install it. If it cant't find one the choose the driver you downloaded online. After that then try installing the printer software. Also make sure that when you go to print something that your printer is set up as the default printer.

Network printing in vista is offline

Is it shared over a network, or is the driver installed on each PC independently? Have you installed the proper Vista drivers on the Vista PC's? The Xp driver is likely not compatible with Vista. It may be (if you used a disc) that it doesn't contain the proper Vista drivers. I would try downloading the proper driver and re-installing on the Vista PC's.

Printing problem

Hi JuanU,

Which version of Windows are you running now? Vista?
If it is Vista, you will need to use the newer 'UltraDriver' for the Opera printer (V1.3.0.0 Issue 1).
This can be downloaded from Magicard's web site here;

NOTE!!! This driver will ONLY work with the following operating systems: Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and VISTA. If your PC has a different OS from those above DO NOT install this driver!

If you have an 'older' Opera printer which does not have an 'E' in the serial number, you will need to change the 'PRODUCT ID' from 2000 to 2800 before this driver will recognise the printer.

This is quite simple to do. Download and install the Magicard Support Utility Version 3.13 by clicking on this link;

Run the Utility, select 'USB' for the comms port.
When the other tabs open up, select 'Statistics / Commands'.
In the 'Quick Command' box type;


Then click 'Send'.

Exit the Magicard Support Utility, and unplug the printer's power cable.
Now, install the UltraDriver version Issue 1.
When the driver install has finished, plug the power cable into the printer. The hardware wizard will finish the installation and you will then see the 'Magicard Opera' printer icon in your printers folder.
It should then work fine.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Unable to enter cd into my new laptop with vista basic

If you are downloading the vista drivers, why are you loading the cd?

Just double click the driver download to install.

If you are wanting to install additional printer software that came on the driver cd, you can most likely download the software updates at the same place you downloaded the drivers.

Can't install to Vista HP PSC 1210

Use Paint.
It's not ideal, but I can scan with my HP PSC 1205 running Vista when I use Paint. Just click 'file' then 'from Scanner or Camera'.
Works a treat.
