The USB cable you are using may be of poor qualit. Try a USB2 compatible cable that is thicker.

Trying to find some downloadable software that enables me to scan documents off of my CANON PIXMA MP160 printer to my Windows Vista Computer, and im having no luck trying to find exactly what im looking...


Here is a link for software downloads. Select your OS from the drop down.

Canon Pixma MP160 Downloads

This is an exe file so I would not select RUN when the download window comes up. Select SAVE and save it to your desktop.

You will have to uninstall any software you have already on the computer and make sure the printer is not listed in your Printers folder.

To install, disconnect one end of the USB cable but leave the printer powered up. Double-click the file on the desktop that you downloaded. Connect the USb cable when prompted.

There are also other links on the page above. Manuals, specs, accessories, etc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

A few days ago, my computer started giving me the message "USB Device Not Recognized", and I soon realized it referred to my PIXMA MP160 printer/scanner. I've tried almost everything including reloading...

Try disconnecting unit from USB port, restart computer, and reinstall unit. Might try another USB port on computer. It also may be a bad printer/scanner! Try it on another computer.

First step I would try is; unplug printer usb cable, then power down printer, reconnect usb cable to printer, power printer back on. If all this fails then lets try one other possible fix. Go to start select RUN & type services.msc, ok now you should have a services window that popped up. On the right hand side locate "Printer Spool" and right click on it, then select "Restart". this should refresh your printer spool. Hope this was helpful.
