SOURCE: DRIVER FOR MAC OS X OPERATING SYSTEM

See the following web page from cannon

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=OSCompatibilitySupportAct&keycode=macdr&fcategoryid=238&modelid=7175

I find this slightly confusing that the statement concerning OS x10.5 states the preinstalled or provided driver will work but recommends an updated driver then lists no drivers for download above that section.

I have not been able to use my Canon MF4150 since I installed Leopard--either via Airport or USB. Worked fine with 10.4. The driver suggested by Soulvisitor is pre-Leopard

I just found this solution TODAY! After trying for a whole year to fix this thing... It was right at my face the whole time!!!!

1) Uninstall your old Canon MF5550 driver.
2) Reboot your computer
3) Download the Canon MF5550 driver Windows XP version.
4) Open your Vista Control Panel, then click on PROGRAMS (not on Uninstall or something else...)
5) bellow "Programs & Features", click on "use an older program with this version of Windows". Follow the wizard.
6) Locate the program manually. (If you need to search the folder where you downloaded your Canon driver, just go to search file on C. It will probably download on your desktop or Downloads)
7) Open the MF5550 Folder where you downloaded the driver, and click on the setup.exe file.
8) Choose on the next screen Windows XP
9) If you need to change the display settings, go ahead. But I didn't change anything. I just clicked NEXT.
10) Fill in the box: RUN THIS PROGRAM AS AN ADMINISTRATOR and click NEXT.
11) Click Next again and let Windows Vista do its job.
12) If it worked... just click yes and finish. If it didn't, click NO and run it again.

I AM SO HAPPY THIS THING WORKED!!!

Let me know if this worked for you!!!! I know I've looked everywhere for this solution...

Can I use my Cannon MF5550 with Apple MacBook


don't know. I have never tried it with a MAC. But if you can find Mac compatible drivers somewhere online or through Canon, then you can try lots of things.
If you can not, then you are stuck.

Cannot find driver/software for my dusty Canon imageCLASS MF3240 on mac OS 10.7 Lion?


There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX>

Driver Canon mf5550


http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/imageclass_series/imageclass_mf5550

This is all they got.
If they don't have the driver for windows 7, you will be stuck with the possibility of trying my suggestion for installing.

On Windows 7, go to Control Panel then Click on Programs.
Below Program & Features, you will see "RUN PROGRAMS MADE FOR A PREVIOUS VERSION OF WINDOWS"

A new window will open up called PROGRAM COMPATIBILITY.
Follow the instructions, and add a driver for the previous version.

If it works, then you are all set.

If it does not, then you are better off getting another printer.

Eventually, I had to sadly get rid of this printer. It was a great and wonderful printer, and I was sad to see it go because of driver compatibility issues since I got another brand new computer that does not work with it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 64bit versions are even harder to make it work with this printer.

Hope it helps! Good luck.

Cannot install drivers for Canon MF5550 on Windows 7 64 bit O.S.


Incompatible types and version of printer drivers when installed in Windows 7 can cause issues which might hinder the installation process thereby causing the installed drivers to become corrupt. The users of Windows 7 are therefore advised to verify the version and type of printer drivers before the installation and install only those drivers that are fully compatible with the Windows OS on the system to avoid these kinds of issues.
