Driver for printer & Windows 7


I have a Canon printer (PIXMA iP1200) which I have been unable to use with my new Satellite Pro due to lack of a driver for Windows 7.  I contacted Canon and they told me that they no longer provide updates for this printer. (As luck would have it, they still provide uptades for the iP1300!!).  Attempting a 'desperate measure', I tried to install the last updated driver (i believe it was for XP & Vista), but the computer rejected the installation due to incompatibility with Windows 7. 


The question: is there any way to bypass this driver problem and still use the iP1200 or will I have to throw away a printer which still works fine?

thanks for the support!

Post all info about your laptop and version of windows. We are working on it but still do not have the powers to read your mind.

Re: Driver for printer & Windows 7

I have a satellite M505-S4972 running windows 7 32 bit, and cannot install an HP photosmart printer.  I also am having trouble installing simple usb hubs, even well known ones like Belkin -- off the shelf from best buys.  Any help for me?
