Question about Canon MX300 Office All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

In trying to install Canon MX300 printer on Windows Vista operating system, the PC doesn't recognize when the printer cable is plugged in. I tried new cable, I called Microsoft, they said it's the printer's fault, I called up Canon, they say it's Vista's fault. I can't figure out what to try next.

Also depends whether your OS is 32 bit or 64 bit so to be more accurate download it from, so choose the appropriate one.

did you try uninstalling the printer drivers and re-installing?
Drivers are here:

Assuming you are running WinXP go here:

If you are using something else like Vista or Windows 7, change the selection at the right hand side of the web page, then select the driver software. Do not select x64 unless you are running a 64 bit operating system. It is highly likely you are running a 32 bit version of XP, Vista or Win7.

Does the printer get recognized on another laptop or computer? If it gets recognized then there is nothing wrong with the printer and cable. In that case, on your computer it's the driver or perhaps you have a dodgy USB port. Can you try another USB port on your computer?
