How to map usb ports USB1, 2, etc.


You don't map the Universal Serial Buss. You just hook all the devices to the connection points (ports). The computer find them by device, MAC address, etc., not by port number. You can hook up to 127 devices to a computer, and the computer will talk to all of them regardless the physical point of connection. That's the reason, you can buy USB hubs with 4 or more connection points that plug into an USB port (how do you map that?).
USB1 - 6 is for you to know how many devices are connected to the computer via USB at a certain time.
So if your printer is configured for USB1, what ever port you plug that printer in, will be USB1.

Connecting my Lexmark X2470 to macbook pro


Hi I'm sorry to say that no Mac o/s drivers exist for your printer according to Lexmark's own site and also according to Mac Forums.
I will keep an eye out but I suggest that you appeal to Lexmark to supply you with the relevant drivers.
Sorry for the lack of support currently available to you.

I have an apple laptop that I use through my router and can not print on my printer that is connected to my PC in my home office. It was connected at one time, but I must have inadvertantly disconnected...


You need to check and make sure of three things. First, that the two computers are networked. Second, that you have selected to share the printer on the PC. Third, that you have the printer driver installed on the Mac. It would help to know which versions of OS you are running on each machine, and which printer model as well...

CD isn't working for me to connect printer.


Try going to the printer manufacturer's website, and downloading the specific drivers for your model and installing that way. Be sure to get the drivers designed for your OS. (Vista, XP, 2000, Mac OSX, Linux)

I am unsure how to connect my hp psc 1410 all in one printer scanner copier to my apple mac computer


Hi, If the problem is simple the connection itself, most of the newer Macs have USB and PS2 ports.  The HP printer should have a USB port.  Here is a link to a HP page that has alot of info about that printer including the manuals and specifications: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&cc=us&product=441115
You will need to make sure that you have the compatible Mac operating system depending on how old your Mac is.  This printer requires: Mac OS 10.4 or later, Mac OS 10.3 or later, Mac OS 10.2.3 or later (Mac OS 10.2.6 or later recommended)
Please feel free to leave me a comment if you have any further questions. Hope this was helpful have a great day!

Mac printer Hp Printer


It's because your printer is set for sharing on a windows based network. Mac has a different network for sharing printers not compatible with windows.

The only way to get it to work on the network is to get a print server either wired or wireless and connect the printer that way to your network. Then everyone can use it.
