Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer
I know this has been asked more than once on many a mac forum, but nothing so far has worked for me.
My operating system is Mac OS X and I have a Canon mp210 series printer with all the latest drivers installed from the Canon website, but the double-sided print option is still greyed out and unavailable. I read somewhere that there's supposed to be a Duplex Printing & Margins option from the drop-down list when the Print Dialog box is opened, but I don't have that option.
On another forum, I read something about selecting Printer & Fax Preferences from the Print Dialog box. When I press the Drivers tab after, none of the newly installed drivers are listed. Are they supposed to be visible? The only driver listed is the Canon mp210 series driver.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm going insane from wasting ridiculous amounts of paper and refuse to print anything until I find a solution.
I have OS-X 10.4.11 and had the same issue; any printing just spat out blank pages.
I installed the following driver which completely resolved the issue:
There's a similar one for 10.5 that I haven't tested, to be found here:
If you use 10.5 and this driver works for you, please let others know by posting here, too.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
