Question about Samsung SCX-4100 All-In-One Laser Printer
I just bought a iMac and I can not use my Samsung SCX 4100 multifunction laser printer. Where can I obtain the driver that works properly? I thank you in advance. Augusto.
I use a Samsung SCX-4100 multifunction printer/scanner/copier with my Mac G4 running Tiger. Here is (hopefully) everything you need to get the printer functionality working in a similar way:
1:- Download the printer driver. Samsung does not oficially support Tiger SCX-4100 interoperability. They published a driver for a very short period of time and then withdrew it from their website for unknown reasons. However it is still available from a number of other websites, and this is one of them:
Click on the download to start the installation manager.
2:- Power up the printer and connect it to your mac using a USB cable.
3:- Open the printer centre. If it's already open CLOSE IT FIRST as otherwise it won't search for and find new printer drivers. To get to the print & fax centre click the apple on the top left of the screen, choose "System Settings" - well that's what it's called in translation anyway - and the window that appears has a link to the print centre. (Pictures: System Settings Empty Registered Printer List)
4:- Add a new printer by clicking the (+) sign. A window will pop up with candidate devices for you to select from. (picture)
5:- Select the Samsung printer from the list of devices. The fact that the printer is called SCX-4100 DOESN'T mean that it has been fully reecognised for what it is. There is more to do.
6:- From the drop-down menu at the bottom of the screen, select the printer make, Samsung, and when a list of Samsung drivers appears, choose the SCX-4100. (make and model) If it's not there, either the driver hasn't been found yet or, less probably, the driver hasn't been installed correctly. The best thing to do is to close the window, return to the printer centre, remove your attempt at registering the printer, then reboot the machine. I know it's clunky but that's sure to cause the driver to be found if it's there.
7:- Click the "add printer" button (that's what it is in translation anyway).
8:- Test the printer by printing off a document.
Thanks to the folks who made a copy of the printer driver available to me.
I've gotten scanning to work through Mac now, by a modded SCX-4500 driver. Works perfectly using Image Capture.
Here is the info: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=430721 "Steps: 1. Download the driver. I used 20071224134136734_SCX-4500_OS_X_Scan.zip 2. Unzip the package 3. Open up MAC_TWAIN/SamsungSCX-4500Series.ds/Contents/Info.plist in your favorite text editor 4. Find the product key in the IOUSBDevice section (line 43 5. Change the value from 0x3426 to 0x3413 6. Do the same for MAC_TWAIN/SamsungSCX-4500Series.ds/Contents/Resources/Info.plist 7. Open up MAC_TWAIN/SamsungSCX-4500Series.ds/Contents/Resources/Defaults.plist 8. Find the PID key (line 16) 9. Change the value from 0x3426 to 0x3413 10. Install the driver as normal
The scanner works in Image Capture. To use it, I have to go to Devices->Browse Devices and then click on Use TWAIN UI. (Note that the scanner does not say it is connected on that screen - do TWAIN scanners normally act like this?)"
Here is the modded package as well: - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DSX4PO7M - http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=ed469730f916532061d4646c62b381cbe04e75f6e8ebb871
Thought I'd just pass this on to you, hope it helps.
