I've bought a printer (Canon ip6310d). I've looked on the site(canon.com) and the driver posted is unusable. The printer works, its just that I don't have drivers for it because I've bought it used. Anyone know where I can get good working drivers?

Please explain why the driver is unusable. The best place to obtain a driver is from the mfg.

I can load the driver but when I print, the printer doesn't print. It says there is an error and it cannot print at this time. Retried and got the same response.

Is that the only information the error gives? Does it state anywhere that the problem is because of a missing or unusable driver? Try deleteing the printer (Delete everything in your print Queue and add it again, the computer should recognise it and download suitable drivers itself and if not it should still recognise it and ask you to do it manually.

I believe this site has the driver you are looking for, you can find it HERE

USB Printer, there is no error message. It says that the printer is busy at this time and it cannot print(message from the program itself) After a few minutes windows says it cannot printer because there is an error.

Is that the only information the error gives? Does it state anywhere that the problem is because of a missing or unusable driver? Try deleteing the printer (Delete everything in your print Queue and add it again, the computer should recognise it and download suitable drivers itself and if not it should still recognise it and ask you to do it manually.

Ok. I'll test it out. EDIT (Download site: beta00.c-wss.com isn't loading at this time.) I'll try it in the morning then.
