Re: How to install without CD/DVD drive



You should be able to go to the Canon website and download the drivers and software for your specific model printer.


I know I can with my Canon laser printer.


Then you shouldn't need the installation CD.


If you would like a DVD drive for other purposes, you can purchase any external usb DVD drive of your choosing.
