Default How To Find My Printer Driver And Save It?

I've got a Canon LBP8IIIR which is a pretty old printer that I can no longer find drivers for.

Where I got the drivers from in the first place I don't know and where/what the download file is/was I don't know either.

So I'm worried about my driver getting corrupted or a hard disk crash or somesuch and then I can't provide drivers for my printer any more.

Is there some way I can find the drivers that my system is using for my printer and copy them somewhere to backup and keep for when I need them?

AND: is there anyone knows where to find drivers for the Canon LBP8IIIR?

regards,

ab

hunt down a copy of
Driver Magician Lite, freeware, and it is excellent at finding and backing up.


Also while we're talking about your Canon, found this onsite, did this not work for you?
Your printer is listed?

Thanks for that. I'll backup my driver with Magician.

Meanwhile I came across a surprising thing (to me) the driver comes with WinXP ! Not even Canon told me that - why not I don't know.

I was saying I don't know where I got the driver or what file it was - I don't know what made me so sure I got the driver but I was sure. But it looks like I didn't. It looks like WinXP provided it. Unless it is only in the list of available drivers BECAUSE I previously installed it. Would that be right or what?

That link you provided is for a driver for LBP4 and, it seems to suggest, for that list printers below the 'LBP4'. And that list includes the LBP8IIIR. So it looks good. But for OS they say win95, win98, so it's not so good. I gave it a miss.

regards,

ab

oh hey, you are so welcome, glad to help.

Looks like the help crew took vacation this week LOL
I'll be patient on my own request.
Someone who haunts here HAS to know.
