Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I connected Pixma MP 500 to the computer to scan document and send it via e-mail. Could not do it because for some reason the comp could not do it trough internet (automatically). It asked to install CD if I have it.
But I don't have installation CD.
Is there any other option I can do it by.
Thank you very much.
You can down load the driver software from this site

I will send a separate post to give directions on faxing. You can download and install the manual onto your computer if you like. It contains all of the directions on the use of the unit and has nice illustrations to help you see what the directions describe. Select the On screen manual, let it download and once the file is unzipped, tell it to run. Once the manual installs, look on your program listing on the Start menu for the Cannon manual and open it like any other program.
Here are the links, first for the manual page, look for the link on the lower portion of the page, The second for the driver and download page if you need additional software.
