Canon Pixma MP520 Printer Driver. The Canon Pixma MP520 printer has been in use for about 3 months. The installation under Vista 32-bit was not a problem, the printer does its work very reliably and fast, in addition the built-in scanner for this price is very good and easy to use, also my 70-year-old father has absolutely no problems. The only downside is the not very easy handling of refill ink or ink cartridges not from Canon. The original Canon ink cartridge has a built-in chip, which gives information about the ink level, if this runs low, a message appears on the screen.

This chip is however only on the original ink cartridges available and these are with each 10 € not quite cheap. If you use an alternative cartridge (costs approx. 1.50 €) the chip of the originals must be removed beforehand and glued to the replacement cartridge, which should also work without manual dexterity. The only drawback is the missing feedback when the cartridge is empty, so it can happen that the print head runs empty, which is the shelf life is rather discordant. Therefore often times the ink tanks check.
