Could be a bad disk. I work in a Hospital with Lexmark and Hp's and one time we tried loading a driver from disk could not do it, until we switched disk and it loaded. Try form canon.com, drivers and downloads.

My Dell 720 printer won't work withmy dell 1521


All printers are compatible to a degree.

What operating system are you running on your dell 1521 laptop? What drivers are supported on your Dell 720 printer?

If you are running Windows Vista on your laptop and there are only drivers for your printer up until Windows XP and nothing is on Dell's website for your printer in terms of drivers, then you can only try to run Windows Vista in Compatibility Mode.

If this doesn't work, then you'll need to get a new printer.

Trying to install printer


You can download the driver/software from the printer manufacturers website. Just click on the support link, lookup your model # and then download & install the drivers for the operating system you are running. This will take the place of the installation cd so you should be able to install using this method. Hope this helps.

No software disk to load 1700 into Dell 6400 Inspiron laptop.


In Windows, how do I install my printer? Most new printers, especially USB printers, come with installer programs. If you have neither installation instructions nor an installation program, you can use one of the following procedures to install most printers:
USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.

Adding network printer


nope..you can do this, but you'll need the install disk, or the software on your drive, so the 'chooser' can see it.

if you don't have the old disk, go here, get new drivers for your model number, install them,

then add that printer. when it asks for the model, use Have Disk. then your computer will go search for the new drivers

should work nicely

Canon BJC-250 Printer


sure...you may need to add the printer, again, after removing it. Also, did the new dell Vista disk for drivers and utilities come with? I'd advise going to Canon's page, and getting a more recent driver. The old disk from Dell or Canon, MAY NOT have the most recent driver set. Also, if you're using the print manager, that's a new download, for certain.
