Hi, I will assume that you are installing the Canon MX 310 to a Windows machine. Before going thru the install procedure, please check that you have USB enabled by right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager, and at the very bottom USB Controllers should be there with no red or yellow markings. If they are not there, please restart your machine, press del or whatever it is to enter CMOS/BIOS setup and verify that the USB ports are enabled. In some instances, it may take some time before the PC recognizes the USB device such as your printer. You really have to give it time or one trick is to Cancel the printer port detection and just go ahead with the installation. When all is installed and finished, you can change the properties of the printer to USB port from the Parallel/LPT1 port. Another is to plug the printer straight in to the USB port (or try all the other USB ports) without installing it first. Allow/let Windows to autodetect and auto install. Put in the CD only when Windows does not know where the drivers/installers are located. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
