Important information from Canon

The manuals off the Drivers and Downloads tab below can be read with Adobe Reader (free). If you need a copy use the following link and click the Get Adobe Reader Button.

The Drivers and Downloads tab from the following will access the available Mac OS X software -- Choose Mac OS X as the Operating System

Using the preceeding link again this time click the support and service tab Enter Leopard in the search text and click Search

Provides 30 additional links to information that may be useful.

When the scanning software is made available in the future (per the first link), I expect you will find it on the Drivers and Downloads tab.

HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One printer, Scanner, Copier will not scan with Mac OS 10.4. The button flashes for a few seconds, then stops and nothing happens. No image appears on my computer screen.

All lot of those printers came with two separate driver's disc. Make sure that you are installing the correct for the mac and not windows. If you are you can go to the hp website and do a search on there website for the driver for mac operating system.

Olympus P-440 doesn't work with Snow Leopard. What

The first thing that you need to do is to verify if your Olympus P-440 is if it's supported by Mac OSX 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). If yes, make sure that you've installed the correct driver for Snow Leopard.

You may check the link below:

This link contains a driver for Mac OSX. I assume that this driver will work with all OSX (starting from Tiger to Snow Leopard). If this driver will not help, you may need to contact the manufacturer, and verify the system requirements of your printer.

Thank you and good luck!

Since upgrading to Mac OSX Leopard the scanner does not work, how can i fix this?

For Mac OSX 10.6, there are very few Twain drivers built in.

You have to download the Twain drivers compatible with Mac 10.6, installing previous versions of the Twain drivers can cause repercussions for the Mac.

Canon should have updated drivers on their website.

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.
