    MacBook Pro 2011 2.4GHZ 4GB Ram 500GB HD
    Exclamation Software not working
    I have a MacBook Pro and I recently purchased a lexmark s505 printer. It comes with an installation disc but it is only supported on snow leopard (10.6). I can't print photo's from my macbook but the faxing and scanning apps are not recognizing the printer.It reads: "A component necessary for the operation of your printer could not be located. Please insert your printer CD and reinstall your software."
    So how can I get the software to locate the printer?

    Lexmark are the most difficult drivers for the Mac I have ever experienced. Never again going to venture into Lexmark waters. Howver if you look at this link, specifications and then view more specs, see the drivers are for Tiger and Leopard for PowerPC only.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
