My husband has a PC. I have a Mac. We have both our computers connected to the powered USB hub along with two printers. My husband's computer can see the two printers and my Mac does not. Does anyone know what the solution is to getting my Mac to see the printers so I can print?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Have you run the printer software from the CD or gone to the manufacturer's web site to download the version that runs with whatever OS X you are using?

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!

I don't believe that you can run two computers off of a USB hub, for that.. I believe you'd need a USB switch.
