Dear All,

This is my first post.

My MacBook uses Snow Leopard 10.6.2. I wish to print to a Canon PIXMA MX860 printer. I cannot use the supplied Canon set up CD-ROM, as it does not support the OS, the principal culprit being "cannot install MP drivers". I have been advised to download and install several updates from Canon Europe. Canon New Zealand say they "should" work. As a Mac newbie, this makes me nervous! I speculate the download updates may have individual set up wizards, and after installing, enable me to print to the above printer... Presently, I intend to try the updates, but I would appreciate any help/confirmation that I am on the right path. 10.6.2 has been out for a few months now, and some users will have encountered this problem.

Cheers all!

I downloaded the Canon driver update package from the Apple Support site, installed that and all is well.

Printing wireless and wired without any problem.

Cheers ... McBie

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

NOTE: Moved to more appropriate forum.

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!
