Every time i go to print photos i get printer offline message although its switched on and usb cable connected.

Have to load drivers/software again to get it to work, but then the next time i switch everything on get message again.

Any Ideas?

You could try using a different (better quality?) USB lead. The Canon is USB2, and therefore expects a high quality well screenedUSB lead. Some leads are not screened or not very well screened, therefore ther can be cross talk on the wires causingthe type of problem you describe.

I have some leads here that work perfectly well on USB1.1 gear, but don't work on USB2 gear. My external USB2hard drive and USB2 DVD burner both give a "device unavailable" error or"device not installed correctly" errorwith one of the "bad" leads.
