Installation of printer will not work with my MacBook

Is there a specific USB cable for each printer model because when I try to plug in my printer to my new laptop and Windows tries to help me install, it seems to want to search for an older model(DX 8400). My printer is the DX 8450. On downloading an application from the epson homepage it says that the easy print module is successfully installed but still no printer found by the computer when printing. HELP ME PLEASE! I have the same problem, only this is with my MacBook. It always says its stopped for no reason and doesn't want to print. The printer works, on my PC on XP, it works on its own and works when I use the icons directory associated with the printer driver like checking the nossil. However when I print from word or anything alike it does not want to do anything what so ever! Can anybody please help with this issue, same printer as above but different platform.

Select Driver 6.50 (Make sure that you on the MAC page)

Once you download this drive, unplug your USB cable and try to run the driver. Do not plug the USB cable in until you have completed the driver installation or the installation ask you to.

Thanks

Do you know which connecting cables work with the Epson Stylus Photo 2200 printer. I see a sczi firewire 400? and don't know what the 3rd is. I am trying to connect it to a Mac Book Pro with snow leopard...


You should be able to connect to your macbook with a standard USB A-B cable, for most printers it's almost square at one end standard flat at the other.

You can get them from ebay or any pc/printer shop, just ask for a standard USB printer cable. Here's one on ebay:- Item number:180514570583.

For mac drivers for the printer, the best place to look is the Epson website, follow links for support and downloads, entering the details of you operating system and printer model as you go. You should arrive at a page which offers free drivers for your PC.

My wireless will not connect to my macbook


First two are mentioned here,
1. wireless
2. usb
if you are using a USB cable to connect, first you have ensure that is system is working perfectly and turned on, secondly make sure u have the printer turned on after proper connection with your usb to your computer from the printer, this is suppose to pop up a message demanding for printer driver installation.
If it does not respond, you have to check your USB port on your system or the USB cable. check these i believe one will certainly work for you. thanks gud luck.

I have a new Macbook and A new dell printer not compatible.


Make sure that you set it up with a USB cable and not with wireless if it is available. Then download the driver specific to that printer from the Dell website (http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/). Run the software after it has downloaded, and it will walk you through the installation. Hope this helps.

Macbook, lexmark f4270 driver


Apparently, the drivers for your printer is bundled in with the MAC OS CD. There are no MAC drivers on the Lexmark for your model. And the 4200 series should work.
Follow the instructions below.
Installing the bundled driver
Plug and Play
Steps Action 1 Power on the printer. 2 Plug the USB cable into the printer and into the Mac. 3 The Mac OS will automatically create the printer queue and install the printer.
Manual installation

If you plugged in the USB cable and the print queue was not created, follow these steps:
Steps Action Illustration 1 Plug the USB cable into the printer and into the Mac. ... 2 Launch System Preferences and select Print & Fax. Image 3 Click + to add the printer. Image 4 Select the printer, click Print Using and select your printer from the list. Then click Add to create the printer object. Image 5 Once the printer has been added, close System Preferences. The printer is now ready to print. Image
Troubleshooting
If you installed the driver from the printer·s installation CD or from a web download, uninstall it and follow the instructions below for recovering the driver from the Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) CD.
Steps Action Illustration 1 Uninstall the installed driver. ... 2 Delete the Lexmark folder found in Library/Printers.
... 3
Insert the Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) CD to recover the bundled driver and then click Optional Installs. Image 4 Click Optional Installs.mpkg. Image 5 Go through the installation process. ... 6 In the Optional Installs screen, select first Printer Drivers and then Lexmark Printer Drivers. Image 7 Click Continue and complete the installation process. ...
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Software Installation Problem


I had this problem just a few minutes ago. The way to get through this is to plug in the USB cable *before* you begin the installation. When Windows detects a device and ask for drivers you need to click cancel for each device (printer, fax, scanner, etc) that it prompts for.

Run the installation disc or file as normal with the USB cable plugged in and it should work. It worked for me.
