canon chip setters

Has anyone used a chip setter for Canon compatible carts.
I`ve just bought an IP4600 and would like to use compatible carts.

if you buy a compatible it should already be set.
Are you planning on refilling them with ink from a bottle?

Some compatibles have chips but many you have to remove from original and fit to new cart, that seems a bit hit or miss, so I did think of refilling.

I have a Canon MP510 that I refill from bottles.

I just kept clicking on OK and Print anyway when it nagged me that the cartridge was empty and then that it was not a 'genuine' when I put a refilled one back in.
Eventually it gave me the option to turn off the ink counter (each one in turn as they ran out and I refilled with ink) if I remember rightly I had to press and hold a button on the printer.
The instructions to do this came up on Computer monitor.

Now to check my ink levels I just open printer up and have a look :)
