Question about Canon PIXMA MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a Canon MP 450 All in one Printer and Scanner. Have just completed a Reformat with 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate. Drivers were updated -- I believe. Printer works just fine -- but cannot seem to get Scanner back to9 when it was. If I go load the disc and open the printer window I can scan a doc -- but ist is not the same Canon Window for scanning I had before -- looks diffrent - dosn't habve the optionto send to emai9l etc. Any ideas on how to get the window for the scanner back. I used to9 have a short cut to it on desk top -- not now??

    Take a look in Start /all programs and see if there is the software u used for scanning there ..if it is ..make a short cut to desktop by clicking right and choosing send to desktop ..
    if there inst means that you probably didn't installed all the features,,so ..go to this page and download the complete software and driver and reinstall it ..

      download them all three ..and after that try them one by one to see the most complete one I assume that it will be the one with the larger file ..size..

      Take care and lets hope it will do the job ..this is the original stuff and the only issue that makes it different it is if you changed the operation system ..In this case you might get to the point that it do not have the same features like in Vista or XP..but if it is the same operation system .ti sis the original stuff and pay attention when you install it ..each page might have cases to be ticked..that installs or not several features you might need..

    Chances are the printer didn't come with drivers for Windows 7.
    If you have Windows 7 Ultimate x32/86, click here.
    If you have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, click here.
    Install the appropriate driver on your computer and it should work. Best of luck!

    Good evening,I have a canon Multifonction MP 510 printer which doesn't work properly on windows 7 64bits.Symptoms are the following.Printer is installed properly (no problem found by windows).Scan...

    no idea, really it can not work, bacause your printer driver is not for win 7 64 bit, and maybe you cann not find it, bacause there is no,, you need second operating system with 32 bit. you can install it without formating, as a second operating system. It will be 2 operating system on your pc. And win7 with 64bit will make more problems for you, it is right, it working quick, but have strong problems with drivers.

    Canon imageCLASS D861 - Windows 7 - 64 bit Is there anyway to update the 32 bit printer to the 64 bit OS?


    Unfortunetaly, there is no solution for your problem, Canon did not made drivers for 64-bit OS's.


    You can try download Windows XP mod for WIndows 7 or any other virtualization software, and try to install drivers on the virtual PC.
    This should work for you.

    Wondering what my canon mp450 is compatible with. Need to install it and can't find it on the list

    You can get the software/drivers here: . Use the drop-down menu to select Mac OS X or Windows 98 through Win7 (32- or 64-bit).

    For Windows, any generic driver from the OS will not run the scanner. Uninstall this driver then disconnect the data cable before installing the Lexmark software.

    I hope this helps.

    Since upgrading to windows 7 the canon mf8180 printer is working but I can no longer use the USB connected scanner.

    The Canon 8180 will work with Windows 7 32 bit operating systems only. Their latest ToolBox drivers will also get the USB connected scanner to function. 64 bit Windows 7 users are simply out of luck as the printer is not compatible. Drivers are on Canon's site and easy to access.

    No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit

    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

    I hope this helps.

    (Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

    Is their an updated driver for windows 7 ulimate

    I see Win 7 drivers were posted late 2009 and some of the other software was updated last month. However, there are no Win7 Ultimate drivers that are different than the rest of the Win7 drivers. has the location to select whether you need the 32-bit or 64-bit software drivers.

    I hope this helps.
