Hi i wonder if anyone can help. I have a canon printer cp-330 and want to print from my laptop which is windows 7 64bit but i'v tried so many times and cant find a driver thats compatible. Is it impossible to print with my type of printer and laptop?

Hi, I have been on the Canon website and information I find is that there is not a driver available for Windows 7 64bit. Any other searches would be as you found.
How old is the printer, did it work with an older operating system such as Windows XP, and do you still have that computer in a working condition?
If so, any photo's you may have on the Windows 7 laptop would need to be transferred to it in order to print them.
Let us know any answers you have to those questions and we can advise further, however if no longer access to a working XP computer, it may be that the only answer would be a new printer.

When Vista first came out the problem with older printers that worked fine on XP wouldn't work with Vista, and of course the same applied with Windows 7. The printer manufacturers refused to upgrade drivers for those older machines which meant having to replace perfectly good machines with newer ones.
Sorry but there is little can be done about it.
