Canon i560 print driver for Mac OS X 10.5 (leopead)

Dear Sir I had Mac OS 8.6 for over 8 years and a Canon i560 Bubble Jet Printer which I bought new both work very well together with no problems. I print Photos and Brochures. The main software I use is Photoshop and Quark Xpress.
I could print photos with a single color and I had "Media Type" to chose from. 
Then I update my Computer to Mac OS X 10.5 (leopead) few weeks ago.
My problem is I don't have "Media Type nor be able to print a single color. There is no pop up menu or Special Effects menu to go to. I download from canon Print Driver Ver 2.32 from www.canon.com. but I still had the same problem. So I deleted that version restarted the computer got onto the internet and found a Print Driver ver. 4.83 for i560 for mac 10.5 now I cant print anything. So now I deleted that Version too.  Is there anywhere  where I can Download Canon i560 print Driver for Mac OS X 10.5.  Could you please help me I would be most grateful. Thank You for listening to me!!!. My Email Address: greenock@austarnet.com.au
King Regards Ruth

    Thank you for trying. First I looked up on the web site under Apple for printers compatible with Mac 10.5 (leopard) and Canon i560 was on their list. Also I phoned Canon and they said for me to download the printer driver ver 4.8.3 again from apple site. All I can do is keep on their back. Once again thank You for trying.

    Error Number : 306 A communication error has occurred. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer. Then try printing again.

    I am printing off a Mac OSX 10.5.4 to a Cannon i560 through an Time Capsule Print Server. It used to work!!!! WTF...

Ruth...unfortunately you must wait on Canon to get a print driver that works.

Background: In the process of creating and publishing new operating systems Apple contacts all of the peripheral manufacturers that they have to support and gives them the interface criteria for their new operating system. In this list is printers. When the operating system is published it does not include all printers because many times the printer manufacturers don't have time to react.

One of the criteria is how good is the information that Apple gave them for the interface. Printer drivers are time-related and often are tricky to write. This sounds like the version that you have (4.83) is not a good version or may be interacting with other software combinations that only you have that weren't tested. I wouldn't be suprised if they came out with 4.84 this week.

Your best bet is to contact Canon directly with your problem and keep on them until they have it solved. Mention that your only option at this point is to buy someone else's (not Canon) printer. Every new version of a print driver is some solution to a problem that they have had in the past or a new compatibility with new operating system. Remember that Canon has limited resources and money (incentive) to fix your problem and may not be as responsive as you would like. Also, Apple is still the minority player in the operating system market (less incentive).

My solution: continue to contact Canon until you get an a fix.
- cost...your time and effort. Time to fix...???
My second solution: buy another printer (not a Canon). Make sure it is in the list that Apple (specifically Mac OS X 10.5) says they have drivers that they have tested.
- cost...$150US maybe. Time to fix...immediate.

There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX>

I cant install my canon BJC-4100 printer


What OS are you trying to install it on, and how are you getting the files? The printer came out when Windows 95 was brand new, so using the original installation discs (floppies?) on any newer OS is not going to work. Canon has drivers available online for Windows NT, 95, 98 and Me here.

If you have a newer Windows 2000 or Windows XP use the drivers that are built in to the OS. From the Add Printer option, select Canon as the manufacturer, then look for Canon Bubble Jet BJC-4100.

If you have Windows Vista, this printer is not supported in that OS. Nor is this printer supported in any Mac OS.
