Last night I installed a Canon Mp470 scanner-printer to my computer. I have had the item for about two years without installing it, or using it on it's own. I thought that since I had it for quite a while that I would download the updates for it, but I gave the wrong model # XXXXX the Canon website for updates. I gave them MP460 & received those updates & installed them on my computer.

I am not having issues(I don't want to have issues) because I have not used the scanner-printer at all yet & wondered if I should uninstall it & then reinstall it with the right updates? Would it get rid of the wrong updates on my computer? I also want to know if the ink that came with it is still safe to use or should I buy new ink?

I am using Windows xp -windows vista compatable.

We will together check everything. If you are able to print and scan sucessfully then MP460 updates has not affected anything and you do not worry about it.

Please try to print and scan page.

Also, check the print quality. If you are running low on ink, you will automatically get a message on the computer screen while printing.
