If you’re using a Canon MF8500C series printer, you’ll need to install the correct driver on your PC to keep it functioning properly.

The Canon MF8500C driver program runs on your operating system, and enables it to communicate with the printer you use. If the driver gets corrupted or missing, you’re likely to run into printer issues, such as error code messages, blank printing, etc. It’s essential that you have the correct printer driver at all times.

There are two ways you can get the driver easily, and for free:

Option 1 – Download and install the driver manually

Canon keeps updating drivers on their official site. To get the latest driver for your device, follow the instructions below:

1) Go to the Canon homepage and click SUPPORT > SOFTWARE & DRIVERS.

2) Enter the name of the serial number of your Canon product and search for it.

3) Find the driver corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.

4) Once you’ve downloaded the correct driver for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find exactly the right driver online, download it, and install it step by step. If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Option 2 – Automatically update the Canon MF8500C driver

This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.  

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your driver automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click Update next to the driver you need, then you can install it manually.

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version– you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

You can do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.
The Pro version of Driver Easy comes with full technical support.
