I didn't have the CD for this printer and so went to the Canon site and downloaded what I found. When I plugged it into a USB port and started up the computer (Windows7) it apparently recognized the thing but installed it as only a scanner. And I did scan something and it worked, but I want to use it as a printer too. Can you advise?
ANSWER: which driver did you install... please give the exact name as listed on the site...

Here's what it said:
This unified driver contains UFR II V2.00 printer driver, Fax V5.00 sending driver, ScanGear V11.3 USB scan driver.
I would suggest try installing the driver again and picking the printer component.
If that does not work then your next step would be to contact canon directly for support.
