PiXMA TR8520 Driver issues


I down loaded the drivers from Canons website and installed them on my wifes pc. However when I went to make the TR 8520 the default printer it  said that it didn't have any drivers. The printer didn't come with a disk so I have to down load to my pc and then transfer to hers using a flash drive. I'm at a loss as what to do next.




Seems like you have found where to download drivers for your printer.  This is preferred since what might come on a install CD is always outdated compared to what you can get online.


You can download them to any computer with an internet connection.  If her PC is not connected to a network or the internet, how is the printer conected?


Answering these questions might help:


What operating system is her computer running?

What is the printer connected to?

What installer did you use (specifically)?

She is running windows 8.1, the printer is connected to the network via WIFI and to her pc with a cable. The installer that I used was the one provided at Canons website ( Win-tr-1_1-n_mcd.exe ).

 Thankyou for responding as I'm at a loss as what to do next.
