I lost my printer installation disk, how can I install my printer?

Canon printerA missing printer installation disk or disc is not the end of the world, and will not require you to wait until a new diskette or CD can be sent to you. Today, all printer and other hardware manufacturers are providing downloads on the Internet to their software programs and drivers that are included with their products.

If you need to setup your printer and don't have the disk, visit your printer manufacturers web page to download the latest drivers to install your printer.

If you want for a CD or diskette to be sent to you instead of downloading the drivers, you'll need to contact the manufacturer of the printer. See the third-party contacts page for a listing of computer companies and their contact information.
