    How to connect printer to iBook..
    I have an HP Printer (about 4 years old) the installation CD doesnt have Mac OSX listed on it but when I used the printer for my HP computer it didn't list Windoze XP either. So I figured it would work..it says I have to switch to Classic and when I click into classic nothings comes up..don't know what to do /=

    For things like drivers you may want to check the manufacturer's site for the latest.

    Have you tried simply plugging the printer in to your iBook? OS X may already have a driver installed for it.

    Yeah-I thought we were supposed to replace them when they ran out of ink. That's what we do with the cheap Lexmarks....

    I Am Also Surprised. Out of all the HP printers I have, only one has lasted and that is the Laserjet6P. All my others were trashed after a few months of use. Including one that used its cartridge holder as a battering ram so it could break a whole in the case .

    Mine has started doing that as well, this is the 3rd hp printer I've had (1 old model from parents office, 1 off a friend and 1 I bought myself fro 40,-) and probably the last...

    inkjets are kinda junky now a days. I have owned two Lexmarks and one HP and finally had it and bought a Brother Laserprinter that works like a charm. No more cheap junk inkjets! I spent more money to keep those things working that I could have bought an entry level color laser printer!
