There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX> http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3669
You have install the driver numbered 3.31. This driver has a fix for problems with printing in Mac OS 10.6.
You can find this on the Danish Canon site: www.canon.dk. I have not seen it any other places. :0)
Please make sure you have install the mac software/driver for your printer.If you have not then please click on the below link and once the website is open scroll down and select the Driver and Downloads tab then the Select OS as "Mac os x" follow the onscreen instructions to download driver and install it.
I had the same problem. The all-in-one driver download doesn't include the stuff you need for the scanner. Go to this link (canon), click "OSX" on the dropdown list for what os you're using, then click "mp520sosxsd1391ej7.dmg" under "MP520 series Scanner Driver Ver. 13.9.1 (Mac OS X 10.2/10.3/10.4/10.5/10.6)." It doesn't take long to download and completely fixes the problem.
Gimp is the only tested driver by them. Personally I wont trust a 3rd party driver other than gimp and guttenprint because these drivers have been tested by apple team. Other than gimp seems like the only available driver in canon's site are for os 8 and os 9.
First, what application are you printing from?
Some applications (TextEdit for example) modify the size of the print job (scaling) to fit the size if the window on the screen. So, if I open TextEdit and type "THIS IS MY TEXT" and print it, it's fair. If I resize the window to full screen by clicking the green circle and reprint (with no other changes) the text comes out minute.
If you've only tested one application printing, try another.
Another bit of printing information in Mac OS X: You can manage printers in a different way using your browser and pointing to this URL:
I use this to print a test page for printers, and it's a good test for your situation because it does not involve the print dialog settings. Just find the printer you use and click the "Print Test Page" button next to it.
Does it come out the correct size?
Please let me know if this helps.
