The Print and Page Setup dialogs lists any USB printers connected to your computer, any network printers you have added, and all the printers that are shared by other computers on your local network.

To hide all the printers that are shared by other computers (which appear in the Printer List with a pink-shaded background), open Print Center preferences and deselect "Show printers connected to other computers."

To hide printers you don't want to use, open Print Center and deselect the checkbox in the Favorite column next to the printers in the Printer List. All the printers still appear in Print Center, but only your favorites appear in the dialogs.

To see if a printer is shared, open Print Center and look in the Host column of the Printer List. You cannot delete shared printers from the Printer List in Print Center (but you can hide them, as described above).

To see the Favorite or Host column, choose Columns from the View menu.

You should have Printer & Faxes or similar option somewhere in your system configuration where you change your system settings. Open it up and select the unwated printers. Uninstall/delete them. I'm no expert on Mac OS's, but i think that ought to solve your problem

Hi, I have an old (1995) but absolutely perfect HP Deskwriter 600 Printer which was initially used for a Mac OS 7.0 computer. At that time printers according to Mac policy were ready made for use of only...


HP's site shows driver downloads for OS 8, OS 9 and Windows XP 64-bit. Unless the Windows driver will work with Windows 7 (unlikely) or Windows 7 already supports it, you're going to have to replace your old Deskwriter. There isn't anything you can do otherwise.

This is the same kind of problem many people faced when XP was new. Since the operating system was so different, much older software and hardware was no longer compatible. Some hardware makers came out with updated drivers, but others didn't. Either their hardware wouldn't work at all with the new OS or they figured that it wasn't worth the time for a low-cost item (especially true for printers).

How Do I install Printer Driver for HL-5240DN to Mac os 9?


System preference, print & fax icon, add a printer (no need to use the software install disk), when you add the printer use the default protocol: Line Printer Daemon-LPD, address if you know your IP address type that in if not type in localhost and this will locate your printer and fill the print using field.

Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, if it fails go back in and under the print using field scroll for the driver or printer model, and selelct - Brother HL-525ODN or whatever brand you are trying to conect to and save.

Error 6911


You'll have to use google.com to translate this because I don't speak Spanish, but I used it to translate your text into English.

What you're seeing is PostScript being output to a non-PostScript printer. Mac OS 9 LaserWriter driver prints only PostScript. Make sure you've downloaded the correct driver from HP, and then make sure you're selecting the HP driver in the Chooser.

Please let me know if this information helps or not.
