I have had two reports that when a Canon printer with chipped cartridges (PG-5BK and CL-8 colours) is installed on a computer using Windows Vista, the option for disabling the chips on the cartridges to allow them to be refilled or used in continuous flow systems is no longer available once the chip indicates that the cartridge is empty. Instead a message is received saying the cartridge is out of ink and needs to be replaced, with no options,unlike Windows XP which presents options to disable the chip. Can anybody confirm this?

Probably this is with the driver included in Vista.

These drivers are always cut-down versions with minimal options, which stands to reason when you look at the number of supported printers and the space that would be needed for full drivers for them — they'd need a DVD or so just for printer drivers.

Check the Canon website — they are getting some drivers out for Vista.

The person who could not disable the chips on Canon iP4300 was using the driver supplied with the printer. I will get her to download the vista driver from Canon website to see if this rectifies the situation

I doubt that vista would have any control over the disabling of the NAZI circuit. The button you need to push are on the printer.

With Vista, there was a warning that the cartridge was empty and needed to be replaced, there were no more options to continue using the cartridge and then the message to hold down the reume button to disable the chips, as happens if using XP
