Hi all. Im trying to install a printer , using the drivers on the disc tat came with the printer. However, windows xp keeps saying 'new hardware detected', and before I have been given any choice it says 'new hardware succesfully installed'. In the printer's instructions it says if the auto-detect window comes up, click cancel so that no other drivers are installed - however I get no choice and before I know it XP has installed the rpinter!
I think this might be the cause of a problem with the printer, so would like to know, is there a way of turning off auto detect?
You could always try accessing "Services" in XP and switching off "Windows Image Acquisition" or "Windows Installer" I have similar hassles with XP and my Scanner,the driver will install,but then XP wont let me use it,I have to keep using the Scanner&Camera wizard.
I've just checked and already have those services switched off so dont think that could be the problem :(
I'm going to try the thing you recommend about 'update driver', but again not sure if this will work because I did actually finish installing Canon's software AFTER windows had said 'hardware installed', and I can actually see the Canon software in start menyu etc. But I'll give it a go anyway.
Any other suggestions would be great, cheers everyone
