Drivers for PCL5c printer/copier for mac

Where can I download the drivers for my office copier/printer to work with my new macbook pro?  The printer is a Konica minolta (Bizhub c350) PCL5c Printer.  I have switched over to mac because my PC was stolen.  I have drivers for PC, but they are not compatible. Thanks, Dr

Re: drivers for PCL5c printer/copier for mac

Basically all priners use the same protocols. Mostly we have PPD and NOW PCL5.
Right now I´m using a workcentre c226 however all the drivers I found on the Xerox homepage were PPD... they didn´t work. This is what I did:
I whent to Sistem Preferences->Print&Fax->(select your printer in the left side)->Options&Supplies->Driver->Select Driver to use...

Now using spotlight or reading all the drivers search for a printer that uses PCL5 and thats it. It doesn´t mater if its not the model you have.
For example with the WorkCentre c226 I use the driver of a HP LaserJet 3P w/ PCL5.

Can I load the driver/software for my canon MP210 printer onto my OS Macbook pro?

Yes you can but you'll need to install the Mac OsX driver to make it run through your Macbook Pro. You can download the Mac OSX driver from HERE,(open the link and select O.S i.e. Mac OSX and Language and click "submit", the download links will be displayed) it should also be included in the CD that came with the printer.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If I download drivers for my Macbook for Konica Minolta 290MF will I be able to print from my macbook pro?

You may need to download the drivers for the 2590MF instead as there is no Mac drivers available for the 2490MF, but you should be able to use these drivers:

Cant set up printer with my Macbook Pro and missing CD

You need the Post Script expansion if available for your copier. Most Sharp copiers will need this option to work with Macs.

Needs mac driver for hp 450c to print from macbook Pro


Select "Support & Drivers"

Type in your printer model "HP450C"

You will be routed to a selection list, where you will be able to download the MAC drivers.

I recommend that you unplug the Printer from your Mac first, install the new drivers/software for the printer, then plug in the printer for a clean smooth install.

Thank you....
