I've just downloaded Canon UFR II Printer Driver v2.43 for Macintosh Mac OS X 10.5.8 to 10.8.x from the Canon Global download centre to install on my recently acquired MacBook and after download up pops a dialogue box saying "The following disk images couldnt be opened." Reason: Not Recognised.
What's with that? Anyone know how to go past this and to instal the printer driver?

A word of caution based on my recent experience. I've been using a Canon MF4200 series on my MacBookPro with system 10.6.8 since forever. The Canon Mac URFII driver is required to make this multifunction printer work. And it does, quite nicely. I've always downloaded the updated Apple Canon drivers if for no other reason than to have the latest & greatest. I've never experienced a problem until Apple Canon update 2.10. With this update, I'm able to print once from any appliation like Safari or Word or Preview, then the application becomes non-responsive. Relaunching the application and attempting to print only locks up the application again. I have to restart the Mac, relaunch the application, then print. Once. Otherwise the application will become non-responsive trying to print a second time. I've given this update a low rating because, for me, it's problematic.

After downloading one of these first updates months ago I steer clear of them as they apparently screw-up a functionally working Canon printer. Don't install! If it works don't fix it?

I'm afraid to add the new 10-04-12 2.10 Canon printer update. I installed the last printer update on Lion. Afterwards my imac stopped recognizing my printer. Nothing I could do and I was working with both Canon and Apple about it could get my printer noticed on my imac. I didn't get my printer recognized again until I updated to Mountain Lion. I don't want to go through that again. It seems safer to let well enough alone since my printer is working now.

Just like sjk I got the "there are no drivers available for your model" This was after downloading the printer drivers first! I ended up having to clear my browser history and reload the page and on the 3rd reload it "magically" found them again.

That said, I also have had problems getting the MF4350d to work wirelessly. I finally got a long USB cable and shared the printer on one of my desktops so the rest of the rooms have access.

I updated this thru Software Update this morning... did Disc Utility - Repair Permissions and all. Then 6 hours later I get a pop-up thru Software Update to update again. Was a newer version released this afternoon?

Using the full download usually does a better job of updating drivers, the latest being 10.51.2.0 (Preferences> Print & Scan> Options & Supplies button...) If yours isn't this number after updating using Apple's Software Update you might want to download the whole thing.

Long story short; last time I used Software Update my drivers weren't updated.

Hi. I'm 2.8 Quad-Core Intel Xeon / 10.6.8. I assume you mean "System Preferences(?) > Print & Fax > Options & Supplies.

Mine says Driver Version Gutenprint v5.2.3. Where do you find the number you found?

After installing the new drivers via Software Update, I get an error message when trying to scan using my MP145.

After installing the latest driver I cannot print B&W only anymore. Software is forcing me to replace the color ink cartridge first before I can do anything. VERY CLEVER IDEA TO MAKE MORE $$$, BUT CONSEQUENTLY MY NEXT PRINTER IS NOT GOING TO BE CANON ANYMORE. BEWARE!

RandomTox- Get the software from Canon's website to restore functions and avoid the ink level issues. These drivers are made by Apple, not by Canon. I'm sure Apple isn't trying to force you to spend more money on ink, and Canon had nothing to do with it.

More likely they're written by Canon and distributed by Apple.

That's possible, sjk, but then why wouldn't Canon include drivers for all their current products, such as the MF4350d?

The MF4350D isn't current, at least not in the US. For whatever reason, the Canon printer drivers downloaded from Apple don't support *any* MF imageCLASS series printers, while my older iP5000 still is. For the MF4350D, Canon's US site currently says:

"Drivers & Software are not available for this model."

And it's only showing an older iP5000 driver.

Models that Apple-distributed drivers support are listed in this KB article (updated yesterday):

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669#canon

I don't know Apple's intentions for acquiring CUPS, which is still GPL/LGPL licensed (hmm):

http://www.cups.org/documentation.php/license.html

Surely there are more MF4350D's in service than a high percentage of legacy printers still supported with CUPS drivers. Ugh.

Canon is actively updating the software/drivers for the Mac for the MF4350d. Look here:
http://consumer.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/imageclass_series/imageclass_mf4350d#DriversAndSoftware

I think the rest supports the idea that the drivers in Apple's supplied update are created, or at least maintained, by Apple rather than Canon. There's just no logic to the included and excluded list from Canon's perspective; but it makes sense if those are the ones Apple holds license to.

Here, I only see the aforementioned "Drivers & Software are not available for this model." message on that imageclass_mf4350d#DriversAndSoftware page, not any software to download.

Select Drivers and Software, then choose your OS (10.7 Lion, for instance), then choose Drivers. The fax and scan software was just updated last week, on October 20th. The printer software was last updated in August; Canon has said a printer software update is planned for late this month or some time in November.

I'm not sure if you really couldn't find that or you're just being perversely obtuse for some reason...

This fixed my problem finding my Canon IP5200r wireless printer. Thanks for writing this set of Canon Drivers. I am very happy Canon did this so quickly for 10.6.x.

My IP3000 now prints to cd/dvd media again. Well done Canon. If you don't want to clutter your printers folder with the printers that you'll never use, just delete them.
