    Well the issue might be a multi pronged and analysis should be done on different possibilities.

    1. First of all check the Companion Disk for the Canon Driver, clean it and check if ther is anything wrong in it.
    2. Blow air into the optical drive bay and clean the inside , then run a cleaning diskette to clean the lense so that dust particles dont hinder reading.
    3. Can the drive read the CD? If not you should enter Canon WebSite and download The Specific driver from there and install. But if the drive can read the disk, choose the driver for the printer which is Windows8 compatible, unless windows8 compatible driver is chosen the Windows8 OS will not recognize the other drivers whichever they are.

    So get Windows 8 Compatible Device Driver for your Canon Pixma from www.canon.com , uninstall the previous driver installation and then install the downloaded driver which will solve your problem.

    Hello dear...........
    Printer-Canon-Pixma-IP-2770.jpg
    There may be compatibility issues with the driver and windows 8.
    So, download a latest version of driver for windows 8 in the respected printer site.
    Or
    open the device manager from ControlPanel/hardware and sound.
    Now check the canon printer driver and disable and enable it. and then update it.
    then it's done....it will be installed by itself...

    Hope you may understand...

    Hello Friend,

    Yeah! I got your Issue and First of all Make sure that the driver had Installed On previous version of windows i.e..., windows 7 then surely it will Install on windows 8.

    Mostly, It happens due to Compatible Problems as when Drivers were designed there were no windows 8 in market so, it wasn't Compatible with windows 8 so, it won't allow to install. But, still you can manage to install in windows 8 by making it as Compatible Manually.


    Check out the Steps How to Install over Windows 8:

    > I Suggest you to Download CANNON PIXMA IP2770 Drivers from web and Place it to safe Position i.e.., to Hard drive.

    > Now, Right Click the Setup file of driver and Select Properties.

    > In, Properties tap on Compatibility at top of window

    > Make sure to Select Run this Program in Compatible Mode for and select windows 7 from drop down list.

    > Click Ok.

    That's all Now, Install Driver and there will be no issues.

    If any errors Please Post over here with any hesitate we are going to help you.

    Keep Smiling, Thank you..........................
