: I am nearing the end of my rope! I can't believe canon will not support the bjc 5000 & 5100 now or in the future with windows xp. They list freakin drivers for every bjc series printer made in the last few years if not more and the only one listed as not compatible to xp is my poor 5100 (or the 5000 for that matter) Is there any hope out there or is my printer now rendered obsolete? Please give me any useful feedback as it will be much appreciated. By the way if you are pulling your hair out over this, please send an email to your friendly (ya right) canon company in your territory.

: Again thanks and have a great day!

Here's a fix that worked for me

Canon Web site at says printer is not supported under Windows XP. Windows 2000 drivers can be used under Windows XP with some difficulty. Extract files from BJC-5000W2K.EXE and copy OEMSETUP.INF file to C:\\Windows\inf\ directory. Select BJC-5100 driver from the manual Windows XP driver installation choices, being sure not to use Plug-N-Play because Windows XP will not detect OEMSETUP.INF as compatible with a Plug-N-Play detected BJC-5100 and will not allow selection of that driver for installation. During the installation process it is required to direct the software to the directory locations of the other driver files.
