Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I got vista home premium and since i bought canon MP160 i havnt been able to use it bcos it is not recognized by my PC. It gives "unkown device has malfunctioned". when i check it's properties it showed no drivers installed. But actually i have intalled the driver. I used the installation CD that came with the product. I also tried installing the latest driver available from canon website which was supposed to be for vista. Nothing is working.
How do I install the downloaded driver and software?
If you have upgraded to Windows Vista™ from another Windows version or have installed drivers and application software from a previous Windows version, the previous driver and application software must be uninstalled prior to installing the Windows Vista™ drivers and application programs. Uninstallation instructions
Prior to installing the driver software, power off the printer and do not turn it back on until instructed to do so during the installation.
