The Canon i865 printer comes with a power cable, a print head 6x4 photo-paper tray, 5 ink tanks, a CD-R adapter, quick-start guides and the software CDs for windows 95, 98, ME, XP and Win 2000. For Macintosh users, the software CDs also supports OS 8.6-9v and OS Xv10.1 -10.2.1. Unlike other modern printers that use USB connection, this printer uses a parallel cable connection to the computer. The cable is however not provided in the manufacturer package and the user has to buy it separately. The installation process should be launched in one's computer only after the five ink tanks have been fitted in the cartridge compartment. After this, the hardware installation process will prompt the user to install the drivers CD for installation. Should one not have the drivers CD for one reason or the other, he or she can download the same from the Canon official website.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
