Post subject:  Canon MP630 and Bluetooth Q

I have a Canon MP630 printer and want to use bluetooth on it
According to the manual I need a BU-30 bluetooth USB adapter
Fine, but thats expensive!

Does anyone know if I can use one of those cheap universal USB bluetooth adapters?

they are much cheaper

Thanks

Don't get me wrong but heard that printer got low ratings...

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-BU-30-Bluet ... B00164822W

But Tigerdirect is out of Stock, Newegg will rob your money.... But, Amazon and many others are all the same prices...

What are you having issues with? If you already have it? I'm not understanding the question... Emm... if you have the BU-30 BT USB, then your all set, just set it up...

Also, to use alternate dongles like BT USB, it won't work because they have to be what the manual says.. because they can be picky on what hardware you use...

Same thing with a TV, that if I want to go WiFi, I have to get a specific USB hardware to make it Wifi, you can't debate on what YOU want, you need to follow the manual... That's just my experience...

No, I do not have the BU-30. I was thinking of buying it but was shocked at the price. I do not have it but want to know if I can use a cheaper bluetooth USB device
sorry for not being clear

LOL!! You just said you already have it... it's like we are going through Catch 22...

Yes the price is a tad higher but I already fully explained this on my initial post.

Should have done your homework first before buying a printer. I have a WiFi Dell AIO printer, works amazingly sweet. No fuss or problems...Has Energy Saver as well..

No, I didn't. I said I have the printer and want to go bluetooth (I NEED a bu-30)
I do not have a BU-30.

LOL

should have done your homework?

... well, yes, but I bought the printer well over a year ago, it never entered my mind then to go bluetooth
anyway, I am not sure if when I got the printer if Bluetooth was the norm?
anyway, all this talk doesn't help me

I already solved your question, again, at the beginning...

Good Luck...

I have Same issue and questions, but with mx320. I get it - Canon requires bu-30 captive hardware, but for me it's cheaper to buy new enabled printer with ink cartridges than an adapter.
