A Canon MP240 four-in-one no USB?

I just bought a Canon MP240 four-in-one printer for my laptop. When I went to set it up, my computer could not locate the printer. I keep being told to hook up the USB cable but the printer didn't come with one. Should nit have?

Most USB printers do not include the cable, sorry. You can get a cable at Walmart or almost anywhere, just make sure it is a USB printer cable. It will have the aprox. 3/4" wide end to match the computer and a more square end with one side of the square having an angle on two edges so it can only be pluged in one way. Good Luck

Your computer wont be able to find the printer if it is not connected the the computer. Unless it is a wireless printer or network printer. But yes it should have come with a usb cable to connect the printer to the computer as well as a install disk to install the printer driver onto the computer so it recognizes it.
Hope i have been any help.
Regards.

Can I connect my canon mp240 printer by wireless


The Canon Pixma MP240 canot be connected to a router wirelessly. You could buy a USB printer hub which would allow you to connect your printer to a wireless router. Basically, the printer would connect to the hub over USB, the hub would connect to your router over the netowrk cable, and this would allow you to connect to the printer wirelessly.

attempt to remove and reconnect the USB cable to both the computer and printer, reinstall your printer driver, and then make sure your printer settings is set to use your correct printer. you may also try to print a test page to confirm that the printer is still working.

Canon MP240


Have a look at this link
http://windowsfixup.com/2009/03/usb-device-not-recognized-fixes/

"Delete the INFCACHE" has worked for me in the past.

Also I found that I was using a non USB 2.0 cable which caused the "unrecognized USB" problem. Once I used a proper USB 2.0 cable it was fine.

Hope that helps.

Using the Canon PIXMA MP240 printer wirelessly


In order to do this, the laptops have to be able to communicate with each other wirelessly. I.e., you have to have a wireless network set up. If you do, then you are "printer sharing", using one laptop as the 'printer server' (with the printer connected to it) and the other as the 'client'. Step by step instructions are available at this link. Type "printer sharing" in the search box in the center of the screen and click on the Search button. Select the option that matches your requirements.
