My printer does not print on my Mac

I pluged it in and automatically made a driver for the printer, but it says it's out of ink, but I know its not because I can print with my PC laptop without a problem. Should I download the drivers just in case? It's a HP Deskjet 930C, im running 10.3

Give it a try, but (HP) printers are often funny about there ink management...
Sometimes just taking out the cartridge and reinserting it can even do it.

I'd try the new drivers and see if that makes a difference (I've never actually heard of drivers on a mac, but there you go!)

If not - wait until the cartrridge is empty and then install a new one with the printer hooked up to the mac...

Downloading the drivers would be a good idea...

I recently got a HP 840C, and allthough OS X had a driver, the one I downloaded was more recent.

Make sure the cartridge is pushed in all the way. When I got my printer, I didn't push the cartridge in far enough and it kept telling me I was out of ink. ::blushes::

Once I figured out what the problem was and corrected it, everything was hunky dory.
