So I have this desktop and I had an HP printer but I couldn't find the software. My BIL and sis told me to download a driver. Ok, sure. I tried that and a big nothing.
So they give me their scanner, printer, combo--yay! So I plug it in and I'm immediately IMing my sister, "How to I hook it up to the computer? I have the cord with the big piece and the square piece but I don't see a place for the square piece." After numerous googles of the back of the printer...I finally have it in--another yay!!
Oh, I forgot to mention that the reason I have a desktop and not a laptop is that I was trying to upload pics and somehow the laptop fell (me, my sons, the cat? I dunno) directly onto the SD card. BIL says it compromised the mother board...oops. So I'm on the desktop. Also that means I have to get a new SD card. Now, about 4 months later, I bought a cheap one. So I load it in my little, pink camera to take to soccer. Oh....the batteries have enough life for 3 pics...!!!
BUT I got a great one showing my son acting like his nutty self on the field. *Lightbulb* Great blog idea! Let's upload the pic...
So into the SD card slot on the computer...nothing. Ok, in the printer? Nothing. I google "Canon MP470 and SD card for uploading pics to the computer." Yes, great googling skills...There's a tutorial!!! But it says a popup will appear after I put it in the slot. NOPE!!
Thus the Un-Techie Mom. I IMed my sister, but she probably glanced, laughed, and went back to sleep. I wouldn't help me either. I'm beyond that...
So...instead of a great pic of my non-soccer playing boy, here's something I found via Google (always. Ass my friends Steph says...you can Google everything!!)
