Asant? Talk compatibility with Mac OS 10.5.5

Hello -  I'm inquiring to find out if the Asanté Talk that I bought about four years ago and have been using ever since requires upgrading for use with Mac OS 10.5.5?
Perhaps there is a recommended/required upgrade download, etc.?  My Mac specs are:
Mac G5 DT/1.8 GHz (single processor)/ OS 10.5.5 / 2.0 GB SDRAM
Mac iBook G4/933 MHz / OS 10.5.5 / 640 MB SDRAM

Thank you for your consideration of my request.

    My printer is an Apple Talk HP Laser Jet 6MP.

    No solution has been offered, or that I can find on the FixYa web pages I referenced.  I have no information provided by FixYa regarding a solution other than if I want an answer I evidently will need to subscribe to the Premium Assistance Plan for a fee.  My initial understanding was that I would get some help with the submitted problem.


    If I am going to pay someone for an answer, I can consult with a Mac tech pro in my area.

This is for system 10.5.x:
1. Delete that printer from your list of printers in System Preferences.
2. Make sure your computer, printer, and Asante box are all hooked up together and turned on.
3. Click + under the list of printers in System Preferences.
4. Click AppleTalk icon in top row of dialogue box that appears.
5. After a moment, click Bluetooth icon instead.
6. After a moment, unplug the power cord from your Asante box (but not from the electrical outlet).
7. After a moment, re-plug the power cord into your Asante box and, as soon as possible after the "TX" light comes on, click the AppleTalk icon again.
8. Within a few moments, your printer's name should appear. Highlight its name, then make sure all the information about it that appears is correct, then click "Add."
9. Everything should communicate beautifully. I had no further problems.

HP Scanjet 4470c compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.1


You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.

Folder with blinking question mark in it after start-up


Folder with a blinking question mark means a missing system folder, in other words there isn't an OS installed. To fix this you need to boot from the OS X installer CD. With the OS X installer CD in the drive, hold down the C key on your keyboard when you start your mac. This tells the mac to boot from the optical drive (i.e. CD drive) and load the OS X installer. From there just follow the onscreen instructions to install OS X.
Also, you should be aware that the ibook is not compatible with Windows XP. Only the newer “intel macs” of the past few years are compatible with XP. Your mac predates Apple's transition to intel processors and Windows XP compatibility on the mac platform by a few years. This is why your Windows XP CD didn't load on it. The ibook is Mac OS X only.
It only runs on Mac OS X however it is compatible with newer versions of the OS. 10.2 jaguar is kind of old and a little buggy. You may want to consider installing 10.4 Tiger for improved stability and performance. Avoid the newest version (10.5 Leopard) as it is geared towards newer and faster machines.
Hope this helps. Enjoy your mac

Fireworks MX won't open


When that happens we say that the software is crashing. Usually you can fix this kind of problem by reinstalling Adobe/Macromedia Studio (Adobe bought Macromedia recently).
If reinstalling macromedia suite did not help, then you will have to reinstall Mac OS.
Normally Macromedia Studio MX is fully compatible with Mac OS X.3.

AldusPagMaker Not Work


Funny your mention Aldus - they have been out of business for years now since they were bought out out by Adobe. This is very old software and cannot be run on anything but an old computer (vintage 10 years ago or so). Depending on the OS you are running, you can still get away with using PM 6.5 or 7.0 on XP or Mac OS9. PM is no longer made. InDesign is the replacement page layout program for newer systems. Hope this helps!

Need driver for lexmark z640 compatible with MAC OS X 10.4.10


go to www.lexmark.com click on drivers and downloads then click on OS compatibility lists. Click on MAC OS X and then click on home or small office/home office. This will take you to a complete list of compatible drivers for the MAC OS X for all of lexmarks printers. If it does not appear then there are no MAC OS drivers. Which I looked at for you and they do not have any. But you will see a list for the printers that they do have them for.
