Canon MPC600f cannot install

Hi, Im trying to install 2 printers on my PC.
Running XP SP2, printers are both Canons, MPC600f (multifunction centre) & a LBP5000 color laser.
I've successfully installed the LBP5000 but when I attach the MPC600f it can't find it.
I've connected both by USB2.0 and I've lost the install software for the MPC600f, but downloaded the drivers from web.
Problem is it doesn't see the MPC600f when I plug it in.
looking for step by step instructions. i have downloaded drivers for caono mpc600f and the xp sp2 patch and it cannot install drivers or find it when using usb. can anyone find a solution? thanks

Uninstall the drivers.

Unplug the printer.

Restart the computer

Reinstall drivers (make sure to overwrite old files if prompted)

Perhaps restart computer again?

Finally (only then) do you want to plug the printer in. It should find it.

If that doesn't work, you may want to monkey with your USB2 drivers...not sure why, but they cause a lot of problems.

How can i install a canon ip 1900 in windows 98?


Try going to the Canon website and download your software. ( http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010647.asp )

Uninstall any software that you may already have install for the Canon by going to ' add & remove programs ', uninstall your canon printer by going to ' printers & faxes, disconnect your Canon printer from your computer.

Reboot your computer.

Install the Canon printer software that you downloaded.

Hook up your Canon printer to your computer.

The software should install automatically. If not, re-install the software you downloaded.

Printer error message when tried to print test page


You are going to need SP2 to run many applications, doing system restore to before SP2 setup will make SP2 unusable.

If you can install, the printer on a different plug. Uninstall and re-install drivers as suggested on other post, afterward connect printer to new port, drivers will work differently.

You can also try this:

Disconnect printer.

Remove drivers

Uninstall sp2

restart pc

re install SP2

Download and install latest drivers

connect printer

In this way there are less chanches for driver interfeering with sp2. Use last driver version, older drivers may not work well on sp2.

If this had been helpful vote my solution in the other thread. Thanks
