Resolved Question:

I am trying to install my new Canon Pixma MP495 printer without a CD Rom. Can you please help? I have it plugged in with my cartridges installed, but for some reason, my computer will not read the CD Rom so I'm stuck on what to do next.

Thank you.

Hi. I am Rick. I will be your expert.


If you are unable to install the drivers and software using the CD I can help you find them online and you can download and install them from there. Just tell me what operating system you are using and I will locate them for you.

Thanks for getting back to me so soon. I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean by "operating system". I am very computer illiterate.

THe operating system is what your computer runs. Windows xp, vista, windows7.

OK. If you go to the site below click on drivers & software. On the next screen select you operating system. You will get a screen that provides you with the drivers and all of the software you will need. Download and run each one (english versions only). When you have them all you will be able to setup your printer.



That should do it for you.
