Canon ip3300 printer with Windows 8.1

  tonyq 13:25 23 Nov 2014

Hi all,

do any of you have the Canon ip3300 printer(now about 4/5 years old)running on Windows 8.1? Been looking for drivers on the Canon site and it looks as though the printer is not compatible with Win 8.1. Just wondering if I have read it correctly,if so is there a work around?

What have you tried?

Try this, connect printer, load a file, then press CTRL/P

This is a test of response.

According to MS and Canon it is compatible. You need to download the drivers from the Canon site. See Windows compatibility and Canon

The printer is at my sons,so I was hoping to download them to a memory stick and install at his house. I have been on the 2 sites mentioned above thinking that they are not the main drivers for the printer,I presume I have been thinking wrong then?

forgot to mention,I downloaded a PDF file from a Canon site(I think) which says Windws 8.1 & Canon pixma 1p3300 are not supported.

Here is a section from the PDF file. click here
