There are several things you can try if you have a device that is not working correctly:.
Please check this link. You will find the driver for vista
DRIVER
• Check if updated drivers are available through Windows Update. When you check Windows Update, click View available updates to determine if an updated driver is available for your device. For more information, see Install Windows updates.
• Make sure that the hardware device is compatible with your computer and with your version of Windows. If the device is not compatible, you will need to find the correct driver. Check the information that came with your device. You can also search for the device on the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) website. This website contains a comprehensive list of computers and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.
• Many devices require special drivers to work properly. Be sure that you have installed any software discs that came with the device.
• Restart the computer. Restarting might be necessary if the driver requires it or if the driver did not install correctly.
• If the device is a universal serial bus (USB) device, disconnect it and then plug it in to a different USB port. Windows should detect the device and install the drivers, and will notify you if the device drivers did not install properly.

My printer Canon LBP 2900 won't work on my new computer windows 7


There are none and I am sorry but there probably never will be, See this is the major problem with Win 7 anything over a year old generally just isn't supported.
Here is how to Install them so they work. Download your XP driver you wish to install. If it's in a zip/rar file then extract it to your desktop. You should have a simple .exe file sitting on your desktop to install the drivers, as normal for XP. Right click the .exe file and select "Properties". Then select the tab called "Compatibility" Now check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" Make sure "Windows XP Service Pack 2" is highlighted. Now apply the settings and run the installer. This should work for most drivers, but not all Install and run as Administrator.

Vista compatibility with canon i960 printer


Here is a link to the updated drivers for Vista. You will see in the first section where you can select your operating system (OS). Click the down arrow and select Vista. Now in the box called "Drivers" click on the red .exe file. It will display a new page. Scroll down to the bottom and click on the "I agree" Button. This will start the download process. Click Run, wait for it to download and click run again. This will start the install process. This should fix your problems.

Is canon multipass \mp730/700 compatible with window vista


Windows Vista drivers are available here. Be sure and download/install both the driver and the MP Toolbox (listed under Software). If you currently have other drivers installed, be sure and remove them completely before trying to install the new drivers.

Canon pixma500


This product can be used with Windows Vista.
  • To use it with Windows Vista, you must install the driver software for Windows Vista.
  • The Windows XP drivers for your product cannot be used under Windows Vista.
  • Easy-WebPrint and PhotoRecord do not support Windows Vista.
Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista :
Before upgrading your OS from Windows XP to Windows Vista, delete / uninstall all the Windows XP driver software first; then, upgrade the OS to Windows Vista and install Vista driver software.
If you have already upgraded your computer's OS to Windows Vista :
Delete / uninstall the Windows XP drivers before installing Vista drivers.

I hope it helps!!!

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...


You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.
