Re: Vista will not fully load to log in screen Canon Multi Function mp390 seems to be the problem
Changing the cable is certainly probably the cheapest option.... you might
be able to temporarily borrow a USB cable from a device you are not
currently using just to check.
As you've found out, 64 bit drivers are not the most plentiful in the
printer world, but keep trying the Canon website(s)... check Europe and US
as well as Australia.
