I don't know if I understood your problem correctly: you have a Canon Pixma MP480 and you want to install it in a computer with MAC OS and the CD that came with the printer is for Windows systems?

CANON has drivers and software available for your printer and MAC OS X. You can dowload them from PIXMA MP480 Photo All-In-One-Printer support homepage .

On that page, clickon the "Drivers & Downloads" tab and then select your operating system to get a list of compatible drivers, sofware and manuals.
Download the printer and scanner drivers compatible with your system, from "Drivers" section and select and download the software you need from the 'Software section".
For help and troubleshooting installation issues, click on 'Support & Service".
If I misunderstood your post and you have a different problem, please comment and I will try to help more.

Pixma mp480 the CD is made for windows unless the Box says MAC compatible. However if you need the drivers for the Pixma Printer you can get it from their website.
Try this
a. connect the printer usb to both the mac and printer
b. Make sure the Mac is off.. Turn on when connected
c. Go to Preferences
d. Printers
e. Mac will detect the printer select the printer on the screen and press apply
f. if it ask for a driver place the CD in the tray
if not then nothing happens they try running a test print

You can go to the manufacturer website:

Select drivers and software and then select your OS (Windows XP, Vista, 7) and download your driver.
After the download is complete double click the file downloaded to start installation.

I purchased a Canon Pixma MP480 and have lost the installation disk, what can I do to use my printer with my computer since I do not have a disk?


Here is a link to Canon for your Pixma MP480 software / drivers. You will need to select the OS that your computer is running from the OS drop-down menu, download and then install (run the .exe or install program).

Window Me op sys. and Canon MP480 printer - supplied cd will not install, neither am I able to find a download that will work - any suggestions?


> any suggestions?

Upgrade to Windows XP, for two reasons:

* Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 98/ME a few years ago,
and so did Canon.

* Canon's web-site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=17160

states:

No drivers are available for this selection. This operating system may not require a driver or, in the case of older operating systems, may no longer be supported. Or, purchase a different printer that advertises compatibility with Windows ME.
