Re: printer

This is a problem with a number or printers still on the market.

I noticed that you made some phone calls and I'm not sure what changes those folks had you make so this may be a repeat of what they had you do.


Go to Canon's MP160 Downloads Page.

Select Windows Vista from the OS Selection drop down menu.

The first driver listed claims to support Vista and the details do not mention any issues.

Below the driver are also additional pieces of software that are used to interface with the printer to help you print. These are usually automatically installed when you run the installation CD. You may want to install these as well.

Let me know how it goes.

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...

You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.

Probleme d´utilisation entre canon MP160 et vista.

You have a driver problem that may be incompatible with the Vista windows. Contact your manufacturer and see if they have a driver that is compatible with windows Vista for your particular model. I run into this all the time in the field where I find that the printer drivers are not working with Vista.
