    Driver for Canon Pixma iP5000 printer

    W8 Release Preview 64 bit found my USB connected Canon Pixma iP5000 printer, but didn't install a driver. WU says there is an update available, but that will not install. Error is WindowsUpdate_80070BC8, which doesn't help much. I haven't been able to find a 64 bit driver on any of the Canon sites, but I have found an XP 64 driver, on another site.

    Checking properties for this printer in Devices & Printers throws up the following event:
    Driver Management concluded the process to install driver prnca00m.inf_amd64_26559657092dd606\prnca00m.inf for Device Instance ID USBPRINT\CANONIP5000\7&8F48641&3&USB005 with the following status: 0xBC8.

    This status code is listed as ERROR_CORE_DRIVER_PACKAGE_NOT_FOUND

    Attempting to update the driver from the printer properties finds a couple of drivers, but they also fail to find a core driver package. Add printer wizard finds a compatible driver on my machine, but that also fails for the same reason.

    This printer is installed OK on my W7 installation on the same machine.

    The 64 bit XP driver installed OK on this W8 RP installation, and printed a file OK, but attempting to upgrade results in the same error. After installing this XP driver, WU reported that the update installed, but Update History shows 'Failed'. Now WU isn't offering the update.

    TIA for any help.

    Does anyone know where I can get a W8 32bit driver for my Canon Pixma iP5000 printer? Canon just wash their hands of any responsibility.

    I had another look today at Imod's query and my own problem. As a result, I bought (c.23) DriverBoost software and ran a scan. The upshot is that it found a driver (I am not sufficiently technically competent to identify what it is) that works - so for the moment I am a relatively happy bunny. My W8 is 32 bit, so I have no idea if there is a driver for 64 bit versions. DriverBoost says that W7 drivers work most often for W8 machines, so there is some hope for most of us.
