    Canon Printer listed under Disk drives?


    Just a question for you guys, in my device manager my canon printer is listed under Disk drives, USB connection??
    Its also listed correctly under printers too. Should I remove it from being listed under disk drives?? or leave it alone?
    Thanks guys.

    It's possible that your Printer also has a slot for a SD drive
    This is probably what you are seeing
    If the Printer drivers are not loaded, (because of not being available due to the printer being too much old) you would not see it at printers also

    Yeah after posting this question, I was thinking the same thing, it does have some ports for external devices.
    And printer works fine. So I guess this just was a stupid question on my part.
