I have a canon Pixma MP170 printer/scanner and need to install it on my new windows vista PC. The disc to install says there are compatibility problems. Do I need a new disc to install it which is compatible with Vista and where can I get one?

How do I scan a document to my computer with the Canon Pixma MP470 printer/scanner? I tried to press scan, but the document never shows up on my computer


Hello!

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Scanners and Cameras
then double click your scanner and follow the wizard

If your scanner does not shou up in the Scanners and Cameras folder,  then you need to install scanner driver located on the CD the Printer/scanner came with

Hope this helps!

Had a windows XP computer which broke and have since updated to Vista. However my printer (hp photosmart ? D7100 or the D7300 series) I am unable to install to be compatible with my new computer. Is this...


The drivers on the HP CD are probably not compatible with Vista.

I would suggest visiting the Hewlett-Packard website, navigating to their Support section, and downloading the new drivers for Vista.

I have just connected a HP Deskjet 3940 to my new acer computer and it is not printing. I went in print then options and clicked on a few things but still not working. Have new cartidges in 22 and 21


un install the printer driver,reboot ,windows should detect new hardware ,and then insert the cd that came with the printer select have disc and re-install the software.
if your acer has vista you may need to get a vista driver for it,or worse the printer is not compatible with vista.

good luck

I just got a new computer , operating on vista and the cd rom gives this error when i try to install it"your windows version is not supported by the setup program" this is for a "pixma mp 130/110"


Hi,

The message is indicative that the software is not meant for Vista. Perhaps what you can do is to proceed to the Canon site search for and download Vista compatible driver for your printer. Alternately you can try here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
