Question about Lexmark X6170 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Four months ago I brought a Apple Ibook g4 laptop for 287.95 on ebay. The only problem I have with the laptop is that there is no restore disks for the drivers and the operating system. Currently the laptop is running mac os 10.4.11. Can anyone help find a website where I can download drivers and the operating system for my Ibook g4 laptop. I have been in contact with apple but they want me to phone a premium no.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I've enjoyed using a Lexmark printer with my Macs (a G4/PowerBookand
iMac Indigo, both running OS X 10.2.3), so when I needed an all-in-one
for my hobby shop, I bought a Lexmark X6170. Looks like a great unit,
but unfortunately, I cannot find any Macintosh drivers or downloads
for it on Lexmark's site. I contacted Lexmark's Customer Support, and
received the following unhelpful replies from India:
"Please accept my heartfelt apologies for the problems you are
experiencing with your Lexmark product. But Lexmark X6150/6170 do not
"To the best of my knowledge, there are currently no plans to develop
Mac drivers to support this model. Thank you for notifying us of this
request. I will forward your comments on to our development
department, as it is only through input from you, our customers, that
we can make these important business decisions."
I'm hoping forum members can help me out with some kind of
work-around, as it seems (to my naive mind, anyway) that the elements
to make this unit work with my Macs are available; they just need to
be gathered together. Here's my reasoning -- please tell me where/if
First, I'm assuming that it's very likely there's a printer driver for
the printer section of the X6170; since most Lexmark printers are
supported on the Mac (like my Lexmark Z22), there must be a driver for
one of Lexmark's many Mac-supported printers that would work with the
Second, the scanner is a USB input device, so the interfaceis no
problem. I'm assuming that, like most modern scanners, the one in the
X6170 is TWAIN-compliant, so it should work directly in Photoshop, or
with a TWAIN-compliant third-party scanning app like SilverFast.
The copier and fax functions of the X6170 are, of
course,stand-alone,so there's no problem there.
I really don't want to give up on the Lexmark X6170 (especially since
the original packaging got thrown away!). Please help me explore some
"out of the box" solutions to mating my Macs with the X6170.
