I just purchased a new Vista Home version computer. I started downloading old software/updates/etc. I have a Canon imageClass D680 multifunction printer/copier [Canon PC1200 /iC d600/iR1200G] with the original CD but it is not compatible with Vista.

I went to CanonUSA website and downloaded their Vista version of the driver. NOTE: I have done this numerous times and saved it to several different locations [Program file folder in both Vista and one I created in my user "Program" folder] because Vista notified me that I did not have Administrator authorization - I got on line and learned how to disable the user limitation so I could have Administrator rights.

I have restarted my computer in both my personal user account and Administrator account over a dozen time in order to bring up the new hardware notification window and driver wizard. Since the cd version did not work, it prompts me to browse, I click on the corresponding folder, and then I get the same message EVERY time . . .

[paraphrased] "windows cannot locate the driver for the hardware, contact the manufacturer to get the driver."

You guys out there are more tech savvy then me - please help. I do not want to trash this printer/copier - it works great (it worked fine with my old XP machine just a week or two ago).

Is Vista that bad? (All my Canon printers and cameras have been great).

Last week I had to replace my old computer which used XP SP2. The new system uses Vista Home Premium and I'm unable to get my Canon MultiPass F60 printer to print. I've tried an Internet search for a driver and I've tried to add a printer through the Control Panel. My current printer isn't listed under the Canon products.

Can anyone direct me to a download that will resolve this issue or tell me which Canon product under Add a Printer will work for mine? Any help will be appreciated.

I have a Canon BJC 4400 bubble jet printer that was given to me. I downloaded a driver for it (version 3.97) but when I try to install the driver a window comes up entitled "Extraction Progress" and extraction completes and then a window comes up saying "Canon Information", "all items were successfully extracted." I click OK and the next window that comes up is entitled "Readme-Notepad" in which information about things such as installation but when I close that window nothing else happens, it goes back to my desktop. I'm using Windows Me. I downloaded a driver for the same printer for my laptop which has Windows XP and it installs without any problem. All steps for adding a printer were followed. Version3.97 is for Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and Me. Any help would be appreciated.

I bought this printer for a buck at a garage sale. They claimed it worked, but had no ink. I paid around twelve dollars for the ink cartridges on ebay, but forgot to check first to see if Canon had a driver for xp. They don't. However, when I go to microsoft's printer support page, I find that printer listed as one that there are drivers for in xp.

The question is--should I assume Microsoft is correct, or assume that my printer won't work and just get rid of it?

I just upgraded my home network to a wireless system. I'm running XP Pro on the computer hardwired to the Canon Multipass F50. My laptop is running XP Home and networked via wireless. All aspects of the network operate perfectly, file sharing, internet access, etc. The add printer function allows me to find the canon over the network, I have the driver installed (because I've been using the printer in a networked (shared) mode prior to going with the wireless router. Now when I attempt to print I get an error message that states: "Failed to open printer" Canon's website simply states that there are no drivers for XP to allow for sharing this printer.

Wonderful!! Anyone have a workaround? It used to share until I went wireless.

A:XP printer driver for canon multipass f50

It almost sounds like there's a permission problem with using the printer with the laptop. Try going to the printer properties on the machine that the printer's connected to. Go to the Security tab and make sure that your laptop login computer name is there and all of the permissions in the ACL list are checked. You could also try going to Network Neighborhood, go to the computer that has the printer connected and try to connect to the printer through there.

I was working on getting the Canon ImageClass 4150 machine to work on a machine with Vista installed. I downloaded the new driver and upon trying to install the installer informed me that I needed to uninstall the previous instances of "MF Drivers" in order to reinstall.

A:Driver needed for Canon LBP2900 printer

to get my lbp2900 printer working i used the following workaround
- Installed virtualbox (maybe this is also possible in virtualpc)
- started a virtual winxp image
- virtualbox has a remote usb-bridge to connect to usb-devices not recognised by the host-system, configure the bridge to the printer
- install lbp2900 driver

To print from office/photoshop without installing those in the virtual image, on the host system print to pdf (pdfcreator) and print the pdf in the virtual image.

however i still hope canon releases their x64 lbp2900 driver soon!

W8 Release Preview 64 bit found my USB connected Canon Pixma iP5000 printer, but didn't install a driver. WU says there is an update available, but that will not install. Error is WindowsUpdate_80070BC8, which doesn't help much. I haven't been able to find a 64 bit driver on any of the Canon sites, but I have found an XP 64 driver, on another site.

Checking properties for this printer in Devices & Printers throws up the following event:?
Driver Management concluded the process to install driver prnca00m.inf_amd64_26559657092dd606\prnca00m.inf for Device Instance ID USBPRINT\CANONIP5000\7&8F48641&3&USB005 with the following status: 0xBC8.

This status code is listed as ERROR_CORE_DRIVER_PACKAGE_NOT_FOUND

Attempting to update the driver from the printer properties finds a couple of drivers, but they also fail to find a core driver package. Add printer wizard finds a compatible driver on my machine, but that also fails for the same reason.

This printer is installed OK on my W7 installation on the same machine.

The 64 bit XP driver installed OK on this W8 RP installation, and printed a file OK, but attempting to upgrade results in the same error. After installing this XP driver, WU reported that the update installed, but Update History shows 'Failed'. Now WU isn't offering the update.

A:Canon S900 printer driver installation on Win 7

You should read this other thread I posted last week.

That other thread described my issues trying to get the x86 drivers for a Canon S800 installed as the second driver on an x64 Win7 machine. The S800 was USB-connected to the Win7 machine and was supported out-of-the-box by Win7. However the required x86 drivers were seemingly unavailable from Canon.

I was trying to add the x86 drivers as a second driver for the printer on x64 Win7 so that the x86 WinXP machine (which was also on the home LAN) could print on the S800 hosted by the x64 Win7 machine.

After quite a struggle, I solved the problem. It actually involved THREE separate driver(INF) files and folders. Two of them were on the Win7 installation DVDs, but the third one (which was the primary starting point) apparently didn't make it to Microsoft in time for the Win7 installation DVD production. so this crucial first of three drivers was only available from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

So the three needed x86 versions of the three x64 drivers that had been automatically installed in x64 Win7 were my target. Again, two of them were on the 32-bit x86 Win7 installation DVD (just as they were on the 64-bit x64 Win7 installation DVD). But again, the primary first driver was not. And that's what I got from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

I then used a program named WinMount to extract the two other x86 drivers from the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD which I had a copy of.
I suggest that you start by de... Read more

I have a Canon MP190 printer. I was having issues with weird messages every time I tried to print something. I figured I may need a driver update. So I went to Canon's site and downloaded the latest driver for my printer. I deleted the prior driver per instructions. The current driver just won't install. I followed the directions, but it fails to either find or install the updated driver.

I get a pop-up telling me Windows is searching Windows update for the driver. Problem here is the driver I downloaded from Canon has nothing to do with Windows update. I have Windows update shut off. So it is looking for the driver in the wrong place.

I tried to manually picking the driver out of various places on my computer, but I don't see it?

Next I choose my place of residence--USA. Click next, accept license agreement, installs drivers. Click complete, confirm printer cable is plugged into computer, turn on printer.

Hi all,

OK ... for a few days (maybe a week) now I have had trouble with my Canon MX870 Printer/Fax. I have been using it successfully for the past 16 months now, via USB connection, installed on both my Windows 7 laptop and my Windows XP PC (I just unplug it and plug it in to whichever computer I need to print from).

For some reason, it has decided not to recognise the drivers on my laptop. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall (no go). I also deleted every instance of MX870 from the registry that it would allow me to (some it wouldn't for some reason - no access - yes I am Administrator). Reinstall again ...still no go.

The Windows 7 Updates were failing to update the Fax component which I thought was the problem, then all of a sudden it was successful ... still no printer. Now, it is unsuccessful again.

But ... I don't use the Fax component ... never have ... with no problems for 16 months.

Thats a long story. You might of already did this. Start and go to devices and printers. Make sure the printer has a check mark in it. That will make it your default printer. With the printer hooked up to your computer and powered up reboot your computer. Lets see if Windows 7 will pick it up or sometimes it will ask if you want to install the driver. Windows 7 comes with a lot of drivers built in.

Beat my head against the wall so decided to post because I finally have it working.
My setup:
Machine 1: Windows 7 64 bit
Machine 2: Windows Home Server WHS (or in your case any 32 bit Windows OS) with Canon Pixma MP780 printer

Can't install 64 bit drivers on machine 2 (under additional drivers) such that machines on the network can connect to this shared printer.
Canon only provides 64 bit drivers for fax and scanner and not printer on their website because the assumption is that a native driver is built into Win7 (64bit), which it is. The problem is that canon on both machines refers to this printer as two different names in the .inf file.

On the 32 bit side, it's called: "Canon MP780 Series Printer"
On the 64 bit native driver (that windows provides), it's called: "Canon Inkjet MP780 Series"

So, when I tried to connect to the network'd printer, it tried to look for it locally, on windows update and times out and fails (looking for the wrong name and therefore a mismatch).

Btw, I tried creating a local port on the 64 bit machine and gave it a UNC path to my WHS which works but after a reboot it doesn't so that's not "non techie" friendly and a pain in the neck.

Here's what I did:
Look for the driver under c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\<for your printer>.

In my case, for the Pixma MP780, it was : prnca00l.inf_amd64_neutral_4049bfb7d4c077ab

This is my first post so hopefully i get all the info to you i need.

I recently started supporting a remote site of 4 vista, 1 xp 2 mac users. They have a networked HPCP1515n printer. Original vista users are fine they can print to it but two new users to this printer cannot get vista to detect the printer.

When I run the network install drivers they get the following: error 1327.Invalid Drive z:\. I have tried the usb install but that fails similiarly too. Vista does not detect the printer but older users who were connected are fine.

I have tried installing from local c:\ all fail. i have tried older versions of the driver all fail.

The users have profiles set up to z:\

Any ideas?

It looks like the Z drive is not mapped with proper permissions or configured for sharing on the systems where you get the error 1327.Invalid Drive z: .

Have you mapped the Z drive on all networked computers?, checked, and configured Vista permissions to allow changes, created a shared file, configured for printer and file sharing (and if applicable passwords), and run with Admin priviledges? and configured any of the firewalls to allow the traffic (i.e., Norton).?

I was curious if I could install a x86 printer/scanner driver on a x64 system?

I had to install the x64 driver through Microsoft Update. When I installed the software that controls the scanner the software says no scanner detected.

The software works fine in XP and I still see driver support in x86 Vista/7.

Since I installed the printer driver through MS update there is no uninstaller. If I wanted to uninstall it, do I go to Device Manager and delete the printer driver from there? How likely would 32-bit drivers work a 64-bit system?

A:Canon MP730 Multi Function x86 x64 printer & scanner driver assistance

You can go to device manager>properties>driver tab>install driver to install it.

As far as using a 32bit driver on a 64bit system I'm pretty sure it won't work.

Have you tried using the Cannon driver installer?
They have a listing under multifunction for the Smartbase Mp730 if this is the one your referring to.

Then again it doesn't say what OS it is for.
My impression of the site is that it first has you install their down-loader which will scan your system and then provide the correct driver.

I would give this a try if you haven't already.

The most recent driver Canon offers for this printer is from 2005, and Win7 says it's incompatible when I chose the "have disk" option. Is there a way to install a printer as if 7 were running XP?

I have to install it over a network via TCP/IP if that matters.

Please help!

Windows 7, new upgrade from Vista 64, will not recognize my printer, Canon image class D320. The installation disk is for Vista 64. I searched Canon and it is not available there. The printer is older model. I also looked at Driver Whiz & Driver Fetch. They only have drivers for Vista, XP.


Also, I have found that many items do not work with Windows which worked with Vista. I do not even have Word. Microsoft is charging $139 for Word. I have numerous Word documents that I must be able to access. I do not like any of the other text programs that are available, particularly notepad. I presumed that WORD & WORKS would be included with Windows 7. Guess MICROSOFT NEEDS THE MONEY to sell word at $139.

OK, so I have a 1 yr old Dell XPS M1530 laptop with 32 bit Vista on it. I've been using a Canon Pixma IP3000 for the whole time, but it suddenly stopped working. I called Canon and Dell- Dell says its Canon's problem, and the wonderfully thorough canon guy said it was a usbsys file problem (which he can't fix). He suggested I either (1) browse my vista CD and extract the file, (2) run sfc and the installation disk should fix the offending item, or (3) run a repair install from the installation CD.

1) I tried browsing the CD, but couldn't make heads or tails of it and can't seem to find a "find" command in vista (grrr).

It's on the list of supported scanners for VueScan, which works without
requiring there be good Windows drivers installed.

It worked for me on Vista 64. You can try it free before paying for it. If you like it you can decide whether to buy the program or use the money for a new scanner. You don't need a driver for the Lide 30--this program does it all.

Hi Everyone,
I have bought a Canon digital camera (PowerShot SX10 IS). When I attach it to my laptop and turn it on, I get 'Installing device driver software' message. I then get the found new hardware window with 'Locate and install driver software (recommended)' option. After selecting this, it fails a minute or 2 later with 'Access is denied'.
I have been onto Canon who say the driver is already in Vista so its a microsoft problem.
Microsoft say as my laptop was pre-loaded with Vista then its down to Acer.
Before I have the joy of phoning Acer, I was hoping someone might know how I can sort this.
Thanks in advance, fitzsy

I have a Canon i850 printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four+ years. For one thing, I've never had even one paper-jam during that time.

My understanding always has been that it is best to have separate components, so that's why I've always owned a dedicated printer. However, it appears that the present-day trend is more toward all-in-one units. Actually, I'm in the market only for a printer, but if the Canon MP600 all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i850, then I would strongly considering buying one.

The MP600 has a scanner (which I don't need, although it would provide me with a back-up) and it has several modern features of convenience which my i850 doesn't have. What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP600 produces appreciably better results with both text and photos than my i850. Also, would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP600? While quality of results is more important than anything else, speed, economy, and convenience also enter into the equation.

(I was also considering the Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer, but from what I've read so far it appears that the MP600 all-in-one is more highly-regarded.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter. Thank you very much.

A poster talked about his woes with a printer under Vista; I'm having the same problem with a Lexmark printer on a Gateway . Nearly every time I plug in the USB cable, Vista HP tells me it's searching for the driver software to install. Eventually it does install, with a new printer instance.

I've been through the drill with Lexmark tech support several times; I've downloaded their "cleanup" software to completely uninstall the drivers and then reinstalled, but with no success. Perhaps 75-80 percent of the time I connect the printer, I have to reinstall the drivers.

Lexmark techs also suggested that the BIOS might be out of date, which sounds dubious because Vista handles calls to the printer, not the BIOS. But in any case the BIOS is current.

I'll try the suggestion in the other thread to disable UAC and install, but would appreciate any other thoughts people may have.

We have a new laptop with Vista os. we have added it to our network, which consists of an XP desktop wired to the printer and a couple of other laptops both xp which also use the printer wirerlessly.

The printer is a dell 942 which is compatible with both vista and xp

The network is set up correctly and all computors can see each other,

Without considering the need for different drivers being needed for the different OS, i attempted to install the printer to the new vista laptop via the visible printer in the network folder on the vista laptop.

vista laptop wouldnt accept the printer and mentioned something about spools!

my research found this:-


now im confused!
does my xp desktop need the vista drivers?

do i use the dell patch on the vista laptop even though the printer isnt installed on it but may have some bits of an xp driver somewhere in its workings because of the failed attempt to install? or just roll back the system?

Hello All, Haven't been to TechSupport Forum for a long time, and everything seems different now, it feels like an entirely new website. Any how here is my question:

Trying to setup two network printers at office on a Laptop running Vista. And it has been giving me quite a difficult time, and hoping some old friends here could help out.

OS: Vista SP1
Printers: Toshiba E2550C, Toshiba E655
Setup: all devices are connected to a switch, then router, then to a DSL modem.

Method used to install printers:
1. add local printer
2. create a TCPIP port
3. enter local address of Printer
4. Then things went south.

The address is suppose to be, but Windows automatically added a "_1" (see below image) to the end of the address. So even if I follow through the installation wizard, print jobs will not be directed to the correct device. The same goes for the other printer.

Just curious why Vista would add the "_1" to the address. At first, I thought the port is being occupied by another process. Then I used netstat to check for all ports, and no service is running on the same address.

I am desperate. And this matter is like a needle in my thumb, going crazy if don't resolve this soon.


A:Vista unable to install printer driver

I have always used the "Find Printer" option and let the computer do the work. If you have no printers installed (or uninstall what you have), then from a program like Word, select print and when prompted, or when the appropriate button appears, say "Yes, I'd like to find a printer on the network", then the printer will either self-install, or at the right moment prompt for the insertion of a driver disc. I have always found this the most reliable way of getting the right bits of the printer software in the right place.

A:Solved: Vista Printer Driver for Lexmark X73 All in One

See this thread:

"I am new to this forum but had to write in because it helped me w/my problem. I have an X73 also. Lexmark just sent me an email telling me they have no plans to update the driver for this printer to be compatible with Vista. However, this forum helped tremendously and I am now able to both scan and print with mine.

Here is what I did: I installed the latest (XP) drivers for my printer, making sure I did so as an administrator (by right clicking and choosing to load as administrator). I did not have the option to select XP SP2 compatibility mode either, so I just installed it. It installed the scan and copy control program, but failed on attempting to install the printer. The scanner works great. However, thanks to Mepis Man's post to use the Z42 driver, I went into the Printers program and clicked "Add Printer". I then chose the Z42 as my printer and set it up on the USB port and it works like a charm. It also works perfectly with my scanner as well (the printer integrates with the scanner).

I had been through many issues with this and was close to tossing it out until I came across this forum.

Compatible Systems: Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit>

Having follwed the search instructions there does not appear to be any suitable driver available either on the C drive or the Drivers & Utilities disk ('already installed on your computer') which came with the laptop.

As expected, the Epson CD which came with the printer (a number of years ago) does not include a driver for Vista.

Now I need to clean or replace the 'tank' and reset(?) the beeper (counter?). Can anyone help me. (PS I am already in contact with Canon, don't refer me there.) Thanks, .....John

Appreciate some assistance.

This is one question Canon will not like.

Have two printers, a Canon BJC 2000, and a Canon BJC 250.
Use bulk black ink to refill the Canon BJC 2000, and was wondering whether the same ink could be used to refill the BJC 250. Do printers normally use "specific" ink for their make and model, or would any black bubble-jet printer ink be OK?

hi guys i am back now with a small thing
i have in my office a canon ir3035n and i inserted into my pc and i didn't need any drivers as it installed itself (without internet) but the thing is all the other computers in the office have a different driver.
what do i mean as when i go into printing preferences i have nearly nothing, but all the other computers have a full program (not a actual program) with options like which drawer to take the papers to where it should come out etc. so i was wandering where could i find it i made some searches tried to install some thing like canon ir3035/3045 PS3 but the problem with this one was that it didn't print!
so please if someone could help me to find the correct printing (if possible also the scanning) driver
i would really appreciate it

My MX 870 printer is not printing. The item are backing up in the queue. (the WiFi light is on , if that means anything) I recently added a second computer, (lap-top), in a network.


A:Canon MX 870 Printer

Hello and Welcome to TSF!

I wonder if you have an Auto IP or DHCP setup for this printer. This need to be a Fixed IP, any wireless device with Auto IP assigned is not recommended.

See if the Printer IP matches with the wireless computers in your network, click on Start=> Printers and Faxes or you may also find this from Control Panel. Locate the Canon printer, right click on it, go to Properties, Port Tab and in here you shd be able to see the IP Address. From the Canon printer, look in the Menu Setting, under Network or TCP/IP setting to locate the IP Address, make sure it's on Static and the IP matches the IP in all computers in your network.

I have a Canon MP 830 printer. It had been working fine, but one day the printer would not turn on. I checked the power cord and it works. Any ideas? Is there an internal fuse or breaker that could have tripped?

If I receive a reply to this query that contains any "useful" info, I'll be pleasantly surprised. My OS is Windows 98. Several days ago I had installed a Canon BJC 620 printer. The appropriate driver was installed. I've been using it and it has been printing without any problems. Went to print tonight and it wouldn't print at all. Opened the Control Panel, went to printers, and the printer isn't there! The only icon in the box is the one that says "Add New Printer." Went to "Add New Hardware" to reinstall printer. My printer is not in the list provided. Am using a parallel port. Can anyone tell me, step by step, just how to install this printer? Does anyone know what in the world caused the printer to just disappear as if it had never been installed in the first place? Like I said, I really would appreciate any help anyone can provide, but I'm not holding my breath. Thanks.

A:Canon BJC 620 printer

Not exactly a positive attitude you have there. Have you checked the usual like the attachment of the printer cable and power plug? In Device Manager under ports is the LPT port listed as working?

Ive got a MP540 and for some reason when i print something it wants to print from the rear paper feed as opposed to the much easily accessible paper tray at the bottom of the unit. Is there anyway I can stop the printer from wanting to print via the rear paper feed

Did it come with control software that allows you to configure the printer via the PC, through the properties of the printer?

A friend has a new 64 bit Win 7 computer and an "older" Canon BJC 250 printer that she wants to be able to use just as she did with XP. It connects with USB and Win 7 recognizes the connection but the printer does not show up anywhere, such as on Devices and Printers page. I have dowloaded the Canon driver but am stymied at that point. Suggestions and help appreciated.

A:Canon BJC printer and Win 7 64 bit

I've looked at Canon's driver page for the BJC-250 and unfortunately that model is not supported on windows 7, nor is it supported on Windows Vista. The last driver that Canon released for that model was for Windows XP in 2003 and that definitely won't work on Windows 7.

Canon have evidently decided that the BJC-250 is too old for them to spend money writing new drivers for it. This is not unusual as other device manufacturers have also done the same with some of their discontinued models.

So if, as you say, you've already downloaded a driver for it I'm puzzled as to where you got it from.

The bottom line is that you'll have to buy a new printer for Windows 7.

If you let the auto install do the installation of the printer, that could be the problem. Canon has had some problems with the auto hardware install.

I have tried several times to connect the Canon MP 540 printer to my PC -following the instructions to the letter. I have XP SP3. The USB cables and ports are fine ? they work with other peripherals.

The connection stops every time at the same point. On the printer connection screen when I switch the printer on it says ?The printer is detected. Please wait until the installation is complete.? Then nothing happens. The help button gives two courses of action. I have tried both ? always end up at same point. After about five minutes the screen changes to ?The printer is not detected. Please check the connection.?

Canon are useless. The box says minimum requirements XP SP2. An e-mail from Canon says the drivers don't support XP SP3. Canon Tech support says it does! I have used Regcure to try to sort out XP. No luck.
The printer installed fine on my (work) laptop which also has XP SP3!
Any ideas?

the printer was bought two years ago. It worked fine until last month.

the error message says "The appropriate print head is not installed."
I sent a message to canon's service department, the response is to buy a new print head.

I never did any inside cleaning or maintenance except refilling the ink cartridges. the pritner is kept clean.

the questions are:

any solution to fix this error?
should I order a new print head?
may it be any other problems besides the print head?

A:printer canon i350

If you have been using inks from a third party (not Canon) you have probably trashed the print head. A new print head is usually more than a replacement printer. Sorry, and I know the price of the ink, but the lesson is never ever use 3rd party inks or cartridges.

Two typical causes, the printer itself, or the Windows monitoring app.

Uninstall the software/drivers using Add and Remove programs, reboot, and reinstall.
