Canon MG2220 won't connect to PC

My computer either completely ignores the USB connection, or tells me it's not supported/recognized. I tried reinstalling the driver, but it wouldn't work as it required a connection to the printer.

Hi theifofwords,

 

When a device is not detected on a USB connection, there could be a number of things involved.  First, try using a different USB printing cable and attempt the installation again. Make sue the USB cable is about 4 feet long.  Excessively long cables can sometimes cause communication issues.  If you get the same results, attempt the installation with a different USB port on your computer.  Avoid connecting the printer to a USB hub, as well.  

 

Are you installing this printer on a laptop?  If so, be sure the laptop is plugged into an outlet and not running on battery power.
