I have a problem with the mp210. It works on my acer laptop, but not on my macbook (apple). I have tried to download the driver and used the CD but without any success. The printer does not show up in the printer list, whereas my epson printer perfectly does!
Hope it can be fixed. Ma it be due to the fact that the printer has to serve two different operating systems? I am not an expert...

Hi, Did you install the Mac driver for MFC? The MFC comes with driver for windows and Mac. Place the Mac Driver disk to DVD slot and run the installation for your MFC printer. Follow the instruction to complete the installation. When you try to print something, make sure the MFC printer is selected. If you've done all of this and still not able to print, please turn off your MFC, wait 15 seconds and turn on again to see problem solve or not. Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.
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.
Nope, It will almost definitly not work with your macbook. I have a macbook pro and a dell photo printer and there is no way I could get them working together. Dell does not seem to care about mac users. The installation CD for their printers do NOT work with mac os, only windows. An apple rep advised me to try using some of the laptops built in drivers, but i still couldnt get it to work. Short answer, maybe give it a try before buying another printer, but most likely you are not gonna be able to use your dell printer with the macbook. sorry, I wish dell would change their position on this issue as well.
If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
Reset the computer's PMU, SMC, or PRAM. Refer to the instructions for your model:
Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord.
If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to the nearest Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis. If you plan to visit an Apple Retail store, make a reservation at the Genius Bar using
