Ok here is the situation. I have a Canon PIXXMA mx330 printer hooked up to my desktop through usb. That machine is running windows xp media center. I can print perfectly from that machine. I have shared the printer on the network. I am trying print to this printer from my new macbook pro 13 inch. So i went into the printer & fax settings on the mac, clicked add new printer, clicked windows, workgroup, family, and then my printer name (CanonMX3). I then found the driver in the list (canon 330 series) and finally clicked add. So it appears to be connected. Whenever i try to print something to this printer from the mac nothing happens. what am i doing wrong?

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Try physically connecting the printer first (via USB) and then later connecting to it over the network. That usually does the trick for me.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
