Question about Canon Pixma MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Can't get MP Navigator to work on Vista

I downloaded a new driver from Canon and cannot get the MP Navigator to open so I can choose scanning, etc. The new computer won't accept my CD which does have old drivers for Windows XP... Help! The printer does work, just not the multitasking part.

Finally navigated the Canon.com site and found help for Vista drivers. After 3rd attempt, everything is working. Thanks for looking at this problem. You have to install both the MP Navigator and the new drivers... nothing simple like all in one!

Canon has the drivers and software for supported OS versions here: http://usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx320?selectedName=DriversAndSoftware . Select your OS in the drop-down menu. Make sure to select the x64 bit version if you have Win7 64-bit. To check this, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the OS title ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise it's the 32-bit version.

Expand the section marked software and get the MP Navigator to get the full feature set of the all-in-one. Download this file. Then disconnect data cable from the computer. Uninstall the generic driver that is currently installed. (Start > Control Panel > Devices and Printers ; right click on the MX320 and choose Remove Device) Reboot the computer if prompted to do so. Then find the MP Navigator software installer and double-left click on it. The UAC prompt will come up and you need to accept the changes (note you must be the system administrator). Then connect the USB cable when prompted to do so.

Unfortunately you will not be able to download any third-party software that came with the original CD.

I hope this helps.

Hello thanks for asking, i notice you you really did some valid but the problem still exist.

I have a cannon 160 printer but when I click on it, the screen to ask about scanning or print doesn't show.


I have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP160 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.

I also have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers.

I had the same problem, and this is the fix.

1. Go to Canon's website and find the "Drivers and Downloads" section. From there, you will need to specify the subcategories of your hardware, and then your specific model (for example: Hybrid (i.e.-Printer & Scanner), Inkjet, MP470 Series)

2. When you find the proper page for your model printer, select your operating system from the drop down list.

3. Scroll down the page. You will see all versions of the drivers and programs to download. Download the latest version of the driver. You should also download the "My Printer" program. This is useful for troubleshooting and maintenance.

4. Keep scrolling until you find the "MP Navigator" program. This is a very important program, and is necessary for the scanner to operate properly. Download this program.

5. One MP Navigator is downloaded, verify that the scanner will use this program when it operates. To do this, go to the Start menu, click on Control Panel, click on Scanners and Cameras, click the printer that you will be using, then click properties. Click the tab at the top that says "Events." You will then see a drop down menu with the options Save to PC, Save as PDF, etc. Verify for each option that your computer is either opening the MP Navigator program, or that the computer will prompt you on which program to open.

This should get your scanner working. Hope this helps!

My Canon MP510 scanner won't scan - the printer works fine, but I can't get it to scan. It used to work just fine.


Try using your scanner from your computer, I'm using windows XP and when i go to My Computer and the printer is connected i see a section that says Scanner and Cameras, your printer should be there, click on it and follow the easy step to scan a document.

Can't scan on my Canon MP600


What you need to do is go to the Canon driver downloads page and download the MP Navigator. I had the same problem becuse the disc that came with the printer doesn't work with Vista. You have to know which programs to download! You only need the MP Driver and the MP Navigator and all should work!
