All,

I have looked high and low for drivers for the subject printer to no avail. I'm running Snow Leopard on a MacBook Pro. Any help will be great.

Thanks,
Ron Scott

What... you mean you didn't BING it?

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!

Thank you for your help, however the proper driver was not there. I did spend a little more time and eventually found it on the Canon website.

Cheers,

Now whoever would have thought you could find Canon drivers on the Canon website? Just pulling your leg partner.... That's the first place to look.

BTW, Canon has been real good about supporting the Mac platform. They had updated drivers for Snow Leopard in less than a week after it was released.

Regards.

Drivers for this particular printer were not in the "normal" place. Downloaded the driver and had to bypass driver install on CD to load utilities. Printer came up like a dream. Very intuitive and works well in a wireless network.
