I got a free HP photo smart c3180 with my imac, I have installed it, but i cant find the model in the printer model section under the printer setup options box and ever time i print, it prints out random text.

I have installed the HP apps that came with the printer and also updated the software.

Anyone know about this?

I did install this, but i cant see the printer in the printer list under the printer setup options box. Does this matter, i have tried setting it as a generic printer and i still get random stuff when i print.

does it matter if you don't select the right printer from the printer selection box?

remove selected printer from your Mac. Then install latest driver. Now select your printer. I had the same problem and did the steps above.
