Welcome to fixya

you might want to try and goto the printers website and see if there is any drivers for vista to run the printer

some printers will not run on vista unless you down load there new drivers

hope this helps you out have a good day:)

    Let me check the compatibility list and drivers.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 18, 2008

    The ip1600 is compatible with




    Windows 2000, Windows Vista 32bit, Windows Vista 64bit, Windows XP, Windows XP x64






    On Vista the printer does not require additional driver.
    Unplug printer from usb and connect to a different usb.
    Let the printer install the files and allow the setup to make system change when asked by vista.
    If the printer is not faulty it should work.

    There is no driver because driver is built in in vista , but is not incompatible. Canon and Microsoft say IT IS compatible, then it is.

Is the Canon Pixma ip 1600 wireless? If so...


The ip1600 does not have any network connectors, wired or wireless. You need to connect the printer using the USB cable.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Vista cannot connect to xp printer


It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Does IOGEAR GPSU21 work with Vista?


before running the PS Wizard in Vista, right-click on the icon for PS Wizard and select "run as administrator". This will clear the bind errors and wrong segment errors many times - this only applies to vista.
