Problem installing printer on Windows 2000

Can’t install ‘Cannon Pixma MP160 All-In-One’ printer/scanner on computer with Windows 2000 O/S. Installation goes fine then stops before registration, cartridge alignment, etc. I don’t get any specific error, but saw something about a possible driver problem. Tried to download drivers from the website, but was told downloads couldn’t work with Windows 2000. This is a brand new printer with installation disk and a computer with a brand new hard drive that basically has only windows 2000 on it. Any idea why I can’t get this printer to installed properly? The box said compatible with Windows 2000. I’ve been able to install many different brands of printers on different Operating Systems, but this one is being difficult. Any ideas on why this printer/Scanner is being so difficult? In my past, you just hook them up, turn them on, and then follow the prompts. Mike

    I've already been there. It won't let me download the driver with Windows 2000, or Vista, for that mater.

Mp160 pixma cannon scanner not working


Hello.
Is the printer able to photocopy without the use of the computer? (place a picture in the scanner and hit copy on the printer) If it works than the issue is the scanner driver not responding. Download the latest driver from canons website and re-install it.
If it does not work than it a hardware issue with the scanner and a visit to the service centre would be needed.
Regards GM

If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.
