Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10, or mac computer?Please reply at the box below. Thank you,
After inserting the printer's CD disc to your laptop, do you see the cd/dvd device on the Desktop screen? Or if you open Finder, do you see the cd/dvd device on the left?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you,
What happens when you open the disc icon?
OK. I can help you with written instructions here. What happens when you open the silver disc icon?
What are the names of those icons?
Thank you. The printer's CD disk is only for Windows (not Mac) computer. Let's try this: Remove the printer's CD disc from the laptop
, then click on the website below:
, then it will start downloading the file called mac-mg2900-1_3-mcd.dmg
, once downloading is done, open the file mac-mg2900-1_3-mcd.dmg and install it
; follow the on-screen instructions to set up the printer.
Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,
In the installation process window, does it show the downloading process also?
Is the installation progress bar moving (slowly)?
Depending on your internet speed / service, it might take long for the download / installation to finish. Just let it run.
Please let me know. Thank you,
Yes, that's normal. Depending on your internet speed / service, it might take long for the download / installation to finish. It has to download all the printer's driver / software from the Canon server. Just let it run.
No, don't download / install anything on the iPhone / iPad.
- On the computer, when prompted during installation, make sure to select the wireless option.
- Once wireless printing is working from the computer, then you can print from the iPhone / iPad also
; (on the iPad / iPhone, go to Settings -> Wi-Fi and make sure it is connected to your wi-fi / wireless network name first.)
