Canon MP620 All In One Printer

I am using a Canon MP620 all in one with my MacPowerbook running Leopard 10.5.8. My Canon software is MP Navigator 1.05. The printer is agonizely slow. Sometimes after I press the print button it can take over a minute to even start. This not only occurs when I first start up but after the printer has been in use. This occurs when printing black and white text or pictures..

I have been going through a hub and have not yet tried a direct connect which I will shortly. Anyone got any ideas or is this just a slow printer?

Thank you.

USB1 or 2?

Is your USB hub a USB 1 or is it USB 2? If it is the former, that will slow transfer from your Mac to your printer.

Canon MP630

The Hub is a USB 2. I tried connecting directly to computer but it still seems to go through a lot of gyrations before printing. About 4 years ago I had a cheap little Canon which may have been a series 250 that was lighting fast. It was not an all in one like my current one which may mean more complicated you get the slower you get with printers. Once my printer actually starts printing it is not to bad but it is getting to the point where the printing starts that is the problem.
