    Hi, i had a look but it is not showing the printer as being there, could it be the port, it is set on port1, but i had a look on my other computer and it is set on usb1?.

    Just a thought

    Hi sorry, no there is not icon at all, but when i plug the printer in etc, vista says it is installing it and it is ready to use, but when you got to print the printer is not there.

Can't install Canon pixma IP1600 driver on Vista


Try downloading the driver module from this site:

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010230.asp

Click on the link and choose your operating system as Vista and a language. Download the "Canon Inkjet Printer Driver Add-On Module". It supports 32bit and 64bit systems.

This should fix your problem.

Hope this helps,

I have installed cannon pixma ip 2600 on my vista and it will not print says an error occured


Hallo
Some time ago I helped I friend with a simular problem, a Canon printer and Windows Vista. An error message came up when trying to install the printer driver. I looked through the windows register using regedit.exe and deleted all occurancies of Canon. (Be careful when doing this) . After doing so I restarted the PC, downloaded a fresh driver (by saving it to disk), doubleclicked to unpack it and finally installed. This might help you. Good luck!

Canon Pixma MP500


This is the start of the fun with vista. I gives the error message "known compatibility issues" with any none MS software. It does give you the option to install anyway. Do this before plugging in the printer or vista will install it's own driver and it wont work.
the software will tell you when it is safe to plug in the printer.

you can get the vista driver @:
