Since upgrading to Mac OS X Snow Leopard I'm having problems communicating with Cannon MP800 R printer, any clues ?


iMac, Mac OS X (10.6)

    If you upgraded from 10.5 to 10.6, you will likely have to completely reinstall the entire driver and software package for the printer from the original CDs that came with it. My experience with these Canon multi-function printer/scanner devices is that they seem fine when one updates from, say, 10.6 to 10.6.8, but if one goes from 10.5, say, to 10.6, a reinstall is often required. I have had to do this going from 10.4 to 10.5, and from 10.5 to 10.6, for instance.
