Question about Dell 3010cn Laser Printer

2 Answers

I need a driver for my Dell 3010cn for my Apple Mac, having great difficulties as Dell is anti-mac. Does anyone know who makes the Dell 3010cn for Dell so I can try to find a driver for a similar product? I suspect a dell machine requires a sneaky line of code proceeding any instruction to it to foil any attempts to use it with linx or mac operating systems.

I know this printer works with Linux (Ubuntu 10.04, to be exact) so it also works with Mac OS X. If you plug it in, it should just appear in the printer list- if it doesn't, open your web browser, go to http://localhost:631 and follow the instructions to add it as a new printer. I know the CUPS driver for this printer was included in the operating system.
Hope this helps!

Dell 944 v apple mac


If dell doesnt make a driver for the Mac system you will not be able to make it compatible. Check with Dell support/drivers to see.

Looking for anti virus for Apple mac os 9.2


Mac, like linux, does not often get viruses and anti-virus software would pretty much be useless. Virus developers don't target Mac or Linux OS'es because not enough people use them. To do so would be a waste of their time.

Mac and 810 compatible?


Unfortunately most DELL printers have no Mac compatibility and the 810 is no exeption, having no printer drivers for it makes it virtually useless on a Mac as the two devices can't communicate with each other.

I need a driver for the dell 3010cn to use on my mac


Hi Monica!

Sorry to say that there arent any drivers for that printer of yours and your Mac, tok a little reading among the Mac-forums, many have the same problem as you do, but no one found any solution, many tryed other drivers but none worked out, well one managed to get the printer to print but only in black and white, and the printed page dident look well either.

Sorry to say

Good luck anyway

Installing Dell printer on MacBook Pro


A driver is a piece of software that is required to make a piece of hardware work with a computers operating system. Al of the drivers written for the  Dell 921 are windows drivers(see extensive list of drivers below) I found no drivers for an Apple operating system. If Del didn;t have their programmers write a driver I doubt any one else did.You said you could not find on within you mac OS.  Real sorry. It will never work w/o  a driver.

Mac driver need for dell projector


You shouldn't need a driver as long as the Mac video system resolution can be matched by the Dell projector. Considering you are using a Mac Pro I don't think this will be an issue. Have you tried it and it didn't work?
