    Hello, need help!

    I have a Windows 7 64-bit PC. I have downloaded the S820 driver from Canon's site, but it keeps failing on me. The PC recognizes the printer, but as an USB device. It won't let me print to it. It only gives me 3 options when I right-click on the printer - Create Shortcut, Troubleshoot, Properties.

    I was told the INFCache.1 file was causing issues with USB devices. I went and deleted that file, unplugged the USB plug, reinstalled the driver, plugged it back in. It recreated the INFCache.1 file and it tried to install the printer, but it failed.

    I thought it was a compatibility issue, so I tried the XP driver, Vista driver, etc. and none of those worked.

    I haven't worked with Windows 7 much, so Windows 7 gurus, please help out a n00b.

    Gracias in advance.

    New printer time, amigo, unless Superman flies in. I have same prob with my Lexmark.

    Research W7 compatibility on new printers and cost of cartridges before you buy. You may get a $50 printer and spend a fortune on inks
