Here's a link to the download section at Canon for your MP600. Simply choose your Vista version (most likely 32 bit) and download. it.

Atthe same time you'll notice the operating guides are listed below and you can download them as well.

I am considering buying a new computer. I have a


The good news is that your Canon iP8500 printer is Windows Vista compatible. Driver page for them is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10440

More good news, the Epson Perfection 1650 scanner is also compatible with Windows Vista.

It would also appear that your HP Laser Jet 5mp printer is compatible with Windows Vista:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25481&prodNameId=15013&swEnvOID=2093&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=lj-44462-1

Whether or not to get a Dell or HP is a preference thing. The biggest thing you have to ask yourself is, how much are you wanting to spend on a new system? Both vendors are fairly comparable as far as hardware and support. The biggest thing I should mention is that, ensure that when you buy your system, to tell whomever you are buying it from that you need Windows Vista 32 bit. Not all of your components were compatible with Vista 64 bit.
Best of Luck and hope you have lots of fun with your new system!

Printer Sharing


Hi jammin dave,

There are certainly known issues with sharing a printer installed on an XP machine to a Vista machine. First question is whether you have Windows Live OneCare installed. This in itself causes known sharing problems.
