Can you give us some specifics about your Mac and the printer?

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!

It seems odd to me that it wouldn't automatically pop up in Print & Fax, assuming that the USB cable is good, the drivers are installed (not just downloaded, but you've actually gone through the installation wizard) and the printer is turned on.

My bet would be that you have a defective printer. Have you tried calling Canon's technical support?
