    No, I'm not a God. I only bought a printer that didn't work and now it works fine.

    Unfortunately the "latest driver" link in OP's post goes to a 2008 driver which was last updated in 2008. I downloaded it, but the disc image won't open on my computer (a MacBook Pro running 10.6.4). Instead I get an error message "not recognised".
    Any suggestions?

    I don't know what is the problem, I'll try to download the driver as soon as possible, to see if it works again.

    Please try to download it again. Maybe there was a data corruption.

    I've just downloaded the driver, and I 've opened it with PowerISO on Windows Vista without any problems.

    I can only reccomend to do a new download.

    In the end I managed it. The trick was that the latest Canon drivers are NOT located on that European site. They are instead on the Japanese Canon site:

    Scroll down to find the download link. It's all in Japanese which is a bit scary, but actually not too difficult.
    Thanks again to the OP for this.

    Thank you very much!!!

    It WORKED on Mac OS X 10.6.6, MacBook Pro.
    One note here, it just happened to me that I had the CANON_CAPT_V170_EN.dmg already installed prior finding your instructions and decided to download the, put the CAPT folder in the library, reboot and test… and I do print now!
