    Printer is about 6 months old and works perfectly with previous iMac 10.4 system but not with the intel Core. It is used regularly. When asking it to print from CD tray which shows up -and then says go to quality and media options from Q&M and below are crossed through. Printer then says to close CD tray before printing (which of course is no good.

    have you set this printer up on the comp installed all software if you have installed all software and this printer is selected as the main printer.

    If this is all done and none of the settings are different then the problem is likely to be with the printer itself.

    Is the only problem the quality or is their other problems?
