The Cannon site is weird. You will have to wait about 10 seconds or more for the site to load. ( Wait for it ).
You must click the dropdown menue window & choose your operating system before you'll be taken to the correct driver software page. Don't be surprised if you have to wait there as well for the page to load.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

I am trying to conect a USB Cannon printer and my system will not recognise the printer is connected - how do I fix this please.


You need to install the software for the printer before you plug it in to the computer. If you dont have the disk for the printer you can download the software from Canon support at this website http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support

You can download the drivers and other software for this printer here at Canon's site. Just pick the operating system of your new computer from the drop-down menu, then download what you need.

I think you are new with the PC or Printers, if not, I am sorry to underestimate you, not actually, Well, I was just trying make you concentrate, This printer is to be connected to the PC via USB port using USB cable, here's the pic representation : usb-printer.gif The Flat terminal is to be connected to the PC and the Smaller terminal is to be connected to the Printer. Don't worry, It fits with the corresponding ports. printer-usb-port.jpg USB port on the printer looks similar with the above shown image. 67411-usb.jpg You have to connect in a similar way as shown above to the PC.. Good luck...

I need to hook my printer back to my computer i lost the disk


Go to Brothers web site and look for downloads or drivers. Download the drivers for your model and install them. Also if it has any software/manuals that the model uses you should find it there as well. I you already have software installed I would uninstall and reinstall the software you download.

Yes, It is possible that the setup disk is corrupt/virus infected. First try to update your antivirus. Then use Revo unistaller to uninstall the software. Now download fresh setup files from HP site. That will solve your porblem

How to install your printer software on your computer

So you have just bought a new printer and you're raring to go and print just about anything you can find in your computer. Before you amass all available pieces of paper, though, you should first install the printer software. This way, the printing process becomes smooth and easy. The good news is, most software these days will facilitate the installation on its own with just a few clicks from your end.
Here are a few quick steps in order to install your printer software on your computer:
Step 1: Read the installation manual
Before anything else, read the installation manual carefully. This is important. Take note of special instructions like if you need to uninstall a previous version of the software already in your computer or if you need to tweak some settings like turn your virus scanner off.
Step 2: Insert disk
Insert the disk or any media where the printer software is stored to the corresponding drive. You can hear faint whirring and buzzing sounds - this means the drive is reading the disk. Usually, a new window will pop up, displaying all the files read in the disk. Do you see a "readme.txt" or "readme.doc" file? Open that and read the contents of the file. There are usually important pieces of data or reminders in that file pertaining to your printer software. When you're done, look for a certain file that has a icon different from others and a ".exe" extension. This is the executable file. Click on it.
On the other hand, in case the window doesn't pop up, go to My Computer, click on the appropriate drive where your printer software CD is and look for the ".exe" file. Run that file by clicking on it.
Step 3: Installation proper
Once the executable file is run, the installation process will automatically begin. Get the box which came with your printer software CD and take note of the registration code or key. You might need to enter this data later during the installation process or when you need to reinstall the software all over again!
In the course of installation, you will be asked as to which folder you want to save all information related to the printer software, what type of installation (typical, custom or minimum) and which icon to use. It is highly suggested that you stick with defaults. Tweak the settings later based on your preference. What's important is that you install the software properly first.
Step 4: Reboot
More often than not, before you can fully use a newly installed program, you need to reboot your computer first. After rebooting, run your printer software and check if everything's working as they should.
So there. These are the steps that you need to do in order for you to install printer software on your computer. Just remember to do the necessary precautions like scan the software every now and then to make sure that things don't go haywire. Happy printing!
