4.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Printer, October 5, 2010
By 
This review is from: Canon SELPHY CP800 Black Compact Photo Printer (4350B001) (Office Product)
I pretty much agree with the other positive reviews but I wanted to point out one problem.
I prefer to work from my PC. The printing software provided would not work on my newish Windows 7 64-bit computer.
Canon customer service (which is otherwise top notch) was not able
to find a solution and did not seem too interested in coming up with one.
It did operate properly on my XP equipped laptop. The software provided was pretty rudimentary but workable.
Luckily, I already have Corel Media One on my Windows 7 Computer and it accepted the CP800 seamlessly and worked
perfectly without any additional setup. For the person who wanted to make smaller prints, Media One allows you to
put 1, 2, 4, or 8 different pictures on each 4x6 sheet which you can then cut up. I also understand that the free
Windows Gallery software available at Windows Downloads works well. I would only use the Canon Selphy print software
If I didn't have anything else. It's just not very good. It wouldn't stop me from buying the machine because I think
it's great but just wanted to warn the 64 bit owners.
One other warning: I purchased a 10 ft USB printer cable from Amazon at the same time I purchased the printer to take
advantage of the free shipping. Once the unit arrived and I read the manual, it turns out they don't recommend using a
printer cable longer than 8 ft. OOPS! so much for saving a few dollars. Buy the 6 ft not the 10 ft cable!

I just used a 16' gold-plated USB 2 cable on the Selphy just fine. Since all the cable is doing is sending signal down the wire, I don't see where length should make all that much difference. But thanks for the heads up on their software. I went to Canon's support site and just downloaded the 64 bit Win 7 printer driver so it's become just another printer. The Kodak Easy Share software that came with my camera "sees" the printer just fine.
