I decided to load an old HD with the new Win 7 release and I can't get it to recognize my Canon MF1450 printer. I tried the Canon website and nothing is available. I called Canon support and they are not supporting Win 7 for this printer. I tried the Vista print driver and it doesn't work.
Does anyone know a work around for this problem? I love this printer and I'll go back to using XP before I get rid of the printer to use Win 7.

tonyespo, Check out this site You may make out better if you let the website scan your computer to see just what printer you have. I had trouble with manual because there are over 300 entries for Canon MF1450. Please post back to let us know how you made out...Garry

Baldeguy56, the link you provided takes me to HP printers not Canon Printers. I have a Canon MF1450

Thanks,
Tony

I got it working. What I had to do was completely disconnect my printer. USB type connection. Re-boot Win 7. Plug in printer. New device was found. Then I told it where I had the VISTA print driver, my external HD. Win 7 found the driver and installed it. I had to re-boot again and all is working fine. Well it's printing anyway. I haven't tried scanning yet.

Hi -- I am having the same problem. I tried the instructions above, but no luck -- I still can't print. I am running Win7 64-bit. Any ideas? Thank you.
