Try these directions. Your Mac may have drivers that are newer than the ones on the disc. If it is a combination printer/scanner there may be additional software that you may want on the disc.

If you can provide us with the manufacturer and model of printer we can be of more help.

my second printer is hp psc 750. i know that this printer will print and copy but will not scan when connected to my imac (its too old). I can scan with my primary printer. in your instructions, you ask me to install the software for the second printer. when i put the disc into the computer will it install automatically or must i do something further? thank you for your response.

I don't have that printer to test this but I saw something on the HP site which says there were no OS X drivers beyond 10.5. Give this thread on their forum a read it offers a solution.
