It prints everything the computer sends to it or you put on top of the glass for printing. It prints color and black and white with keys to tell it which is color and which is to be black printing.

Yes it will, and at worst ya might have to download a compatability patch. Hook it up and let W7 ask for the driver disk. W7 made it a breeze!

Yes...but they will shorten the life of the printer and gum up the works. I'm the voice of experience. Better to budget for the cartridges than to ruin the printer.

Place it face down on the glass, in the upper left hand corner where there are indications for placing the picture or document. Close the cover and hit the copy button. If the message still comes up contact Canon for answers.

The only picture that I have scanned so far I put in the upper left corner as you face the machine. Mine came out great. Hope this helps.
