I doubt that you need the optional scanner drivers (unless you have the scanner cartridge) so you shouldn't have to download any of the stuff under the "software" section. BUT, I WOULD scroll down further and take a look at the setup guide and user manual.

You'll have to check Cannon's website to see if they have a driver for your Operating System. You can also check CNET.COM for possible drivers. Don't use those websites that offer drivers if you install their software, that's a great way for spyware to introduced to your PC.
follow this link and in the drvers/software selection choose your OS....Wait a few second and you'll be transfer into the driver area. Download the driver. Be sure to install the driver before connecting your printer to your PC.
sure...you may need to add the printer, again, after removing it. Also, did the new dell Vista disk for drivers and utilities come with? I'd advise going to Canon's page, and getting a more recent driver. The old disk from Dell or Canon, MAY NOT have the most recent driver set. Also, if you're using the print manager, that's a new download, for certain.
Try the following
right click on cannon bjc 3000 and check for a tick mark on "use printer offiline". if the tick mark is there then click on the "use printer offiline", then try a test page.
hope this helps
here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away)
Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp;
but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver
this link has dos drivers for the bcj80;
Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
