i have a canon pixma mp160 and it wont work with my win 8 laptop. I went to the website and tried to get the driver but it said that I should be able to plug and play. I brought up the printers and did a windows update for them but it still wasn't there. the 150 and 170 were there, but not the 160. does anyone know how I can get this to work?



thank you for your time

I didn't installed this printer yet in Windows 8 . Reports from net indicates Win 7 driver for this model works with Windows 8. You can try that.
