Help installing a printer?

I just got a new computer, and I'm trying to install my Canon Pixma MP160 printer, but I can't find the disk that came with it. How do I install the printer without that disk? Thanks.

PS: The computer is a Gateway, if that matters. This is the computer: It has Windows Vista.


Could I please have a direct link to the page from which I can download the driver? Thanks.

Update 2:

I did try just plugging it in and going through the normal installation process without the disk, but no dice. I need something from the web to install it, since I don't have the disk.

Update 3:

Thank you! I've installed it using the link isl247 gave me.

    Download and install the latest drivers for your device from the manufacture’s website.

    Download the driver…

    Install it…

    Plug your device in and your computer should recognize it and it will work after that…

    Download the driver straight from Canon. You shouldn't ever bother installing from the disks that come with your peripherals. You have no idea how old and outdated those drivers are.

    Try just plugging it in and turn on. Vista should find it without the driver disc.
