Yes, there are additional drivers. See . Then select your OS and expand the appropriate sections. The basic driver link is at the top; however the full software may be more useful.

Wondering what my canon mp450 is compatible with. Need to install it and can't find it on the list

You can get the software/drivers here: . Use the drop-down menu to select Mac OS X or Windows 98 through Win7 (32- or 64-bit).

For Windows, any generic driver from the OS will not run the scanner. Uninstall this driver then disconnect the data cable before installing the Lexmark software.

I hope this helps.

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

This product can be used with Windows Vista.
  • To use it with Windows Vista, you must install the driver software for Windows Vista.
  • The Windows XP drivers for your product cannot be used under Windows Vista.
  • Easy-WebPrint and PhotoRecord do not support Windows Vista.
Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista :
Before upgrading your OS from Windows XP to Windows Vista, delete / uninstall all the Windows XP driver software first; then, upgrade the OS to Windows Vista and install Vista driver software.
If you have already upgraded your computer's OS to Windows Vista :
Delete / uninstall the Windows XP drivers before installing Vista drivers.

I hope it helps!!!

go to the part of the program that deals with compatibility of programs. I never liked vista so I never installed it. anyway in the compatibility box choose windows xp and run it. worse comes to worse go to www dot downloads dot com and download the drivers for your printer FOR vista.
