Leopard snow 10.6.8

I upgraded my software from 10.5.8, and once snow leopard was installed my printer won't work. the error message says I need the driver. Can't find my disc, downloaded driver from brother's site. Computer still tells me that I need the software for the printer. I'm not a techie, and all the solutions i've come arcross are confusingly technical, almost as if it were a windows machine! Thanks

Brother is totally fucked up under Leopard, found so far no chance to fix it.  Brother's own printer drivers are 10.4 only -- lame

Try stamping your feet on the printer for 5 times, carry the printer up with ur master hand and smash it against the wall for 8 times. Make sure there is crack on the scanner cover. Last step, dump the whole thing into the nearest rubbish bin..

SOURCE: brother dcp-7020 can't scan and get cc027 error

Ok I know how to fix this issue, this involves going into the registry editor, also only available in windows XP, so be careful!
Click START -> RUN and type in REGEDIT
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> BROTHER -> CONTROLCENTER -> (version number) -> (model number) -> DEVICEINFO
Look in the right hand window for ENABLEWIA, if the value is set to 0, set it to 1.
Reboot your computer, should be fixed!

Recently upgraded to Snow Leopard and now cannot get Lexmark X6570 to work. I have upgraded drivers, but still does not work. I have now deleted the software entirely. What should I do first to resolve...


If you've deleted Snow Leopard and gone back to your previous version, you can probably fix the issue by uninstalling the printer completely, restarting, and on the restart it should automatically detect it. Then you can re-install and get the current drivers.

Hi, Went to the Mac store to upgrade to Snow Leopard and was told my OS was "way too Old to upgrade to Snow Leopard!" Sorry, I'm a numbskull when it comes to these things. Figured as long as...


Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the 10.6 Box Set.

System Requirements to run Snow Leopard:
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Snow Leopard Installation Instructions:
  1. Just insert the DVD in the optical drive.
  2. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key.
  3. You will be guided through the installation procedure and be prompted at one point to choose which install option you want.
  4. Once the Snow Leopard install is completed the Mac will restart itself.
  5. You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.
  6. Enjoy Snow Leopard on your Mac!
Q: Can I upgrade directly from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)?

A: Yes. Apple recommends purchasing the Mac Boxed Set for this purpose, which will also update iLife (it is unknown at the time of this writing whether older versions of iLife work with Snow Leopard) and iWork. Also note that while it has been said that the $29 upgrade will work with 10.4, it is not officially supported and may be in violation of the licensing terms.

Q: What happened to the different install options? Can't I do an Archive & Install?

A: Apple has revamped the familiar installation options for Mac OS X. You now have two choices, either a straight upgrade or a clean install. Supposedly if you choose to do a straight upgrade, what actually goes on behind the scenes is what was traditionally known as an Archive & Install.

Q: Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for the upgrade?

A: Yes. It is advisable to run a Verify/Repair Permissions and Verify/Repair Disk in Disk Utility. You may also want to run the maintenance tasks in Onyx. And finally, it would be wise to get your applications up to date using a program like AppFresh.

Scanwise cannot find the current colorsync system profile. I only recently upgraded to snow leopard and this was the problem message


Uninstall the scan software and install the snow leopard software not using the upgrade path. If the problem persist, install only the orignal scanner software.

My new operating system doesn't recognize my scanner any longer but does do fine with the printer which are both the same machine. How do I fix that? I moved from Mac OX leopard to Mac OX snow leopard....


Hi,
Shortly after the world started upgrading to Snow Leopard, reports began emerging that many Hewlett-Packard printers were incompatible with the upgrade. So, you can wait till you get the updated driver which is compatible with Mac Snow leopard.
Good Luck!

Mac upgrade means Xerox printer won't print!


There are apparently incompatibilities between some Xerox drivers and the security-improved Snow Leopard. It seems that many pieces of software (and drivers) relied on not-so-clean techniques to cut corners while operating. These techniques are no longer allowed by Snow Leopard (the same problem afflicts XP SP3, Vista and Seven).

This article lists several problems, explanation and (perhaps) fixes:

Meanwhile, Apple is working to some workarounds too (there is an update linked in the article which may be of interest to you).

I have upgrades to Snow Leopard on my iMac and cannot access the printer commands to cheque the printer heads, and ink levels.


You can find useful information on site? http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportSnowLeopard.jsp Mac OS X Snow Leopard Support Contact Support rightmenudottedline.gif snow_leopard_logo_sm2.jpg Welcome to Mac OS X Snow Leopard v10.6 support for Epson products. Here you can find out how to get drivers and other Epson software for your Epson product that work with Mac OS X Snow Leopard v10.6.
Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Macintosh OS X 10.6 drivers. If the CD indicates support for Macintosh OS X 10.6, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your drivers and other software.
If your Epson CD does not indicate support for OS X 10.6, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRODUCT SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR SNOW LEOPARD COMPUTER. Follow the step-by-step instructions below to obtain the latest software and utilities for your Epson product as they may be needed for this new operating system.
Good Luck.

Just installed Apple new "Snow Leopard" and now my Kodak 8500 printer is not printing.


Hi there

Was it working before the Snow Leopard? If so, was Snow Leopard a new installation or an upgrade over an existing one?

Thanks
