No longer supported,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon SELPHY CP810 Compact Photo Printer - White (Accessory)
I probably would have given this 5 stars as it is a great little printer, easy to use and to set up and the pictures are stunning. It is small and compact and I keep it in a drawer. I don't use it every day as I tend to share pictures digitally but my wife likes to have prints of her favourite photos and within a couple of minutes I can plug it in to my PC and start printing.
The paper and ink are very expensive but that is not an issue for occasional use and would only knock off half a star. The reason I only give it three is that, having had it less than a year, and having upgraded my PC to Windows 8, the CP810 is no longer supported; there are no drivers for Windows 8 and Canon support have told me that they do not intend to provide any - despite the fact they are still selling it!
If you want to print directly from your camera, SD card, compact flash, microdrive or USB stick this is a great, highly portable printer but if you want to print from your picture library on your PC - forget it!

There are workrounds for installing drivers if you search on installing Selphy on Windows 8. I have Win8 and as you say Canon informed me they have no plans to produce drivers. I've told them this is very shortsighted and lacking in customer focus. I make cards and I prefer to work with my images from a PC, but because this is such a compact printer and perfect for my needs, it isn't very much trouble to copy the prepared image to a memory stick.

I managed to work around the driver issue for a similar Selphy printer, for which Windows 8 was not supported via a driver download. I have a Selphy ES1 which is years old, and I could not find Windows 8 drivers, only Windows 7.
By chance I tried loading the Windows 7 driver installation file in compatibility mode in Windows 8 (you can google how to do this). Using this method, the Windows 7 drivers then installed fine on Windows 8, and I now have it fully functioning in Windows 8. You should give this a try with yours.

I know its a problem, but I'm still considering buying. I have Windows 8 uggghhhh. What I would look into doing is photoshop the photos then save to a card and use the card in the Canon SELPHY CP810 . Is that possible, know very little about the product. But same as you, missus wants the pics in her hand

It supports SD,MMC and CF cards. I have used it with SD cards and USB memory stick and it works well with these. My only niggle here is that if you have loads of photos on the card it is a pain to get to the ones you want to print. I keep a low capacity USB stick for the purpose, just put on the files I want to print, then delete them afterwards. This is a quick process but not as easy as printing direct from the PC - really annoyed with Canon for not supporting this on W8.
