Hello,

This printer is compatible with the following:

MS Windows ME,
Apple Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later,
MS Windows 98,
MS Windows XP,
MS Windows 2000

So yes Macs are included. This printer unfortunately does not have duplex printing via Canon's website:

I hope this helps

The Canon-supplied MP530 driver doesn't have duplex printing as a print option. Mac OS 10.5 has Gutenprint drivers built-in for a number of popular printers, including the Canon MP500 which is a near match for the MP530 and includes the two-sided option for printing.

With the MP530 plugged into your Mac (or, presumably, available over the network) go to the Add Printer wizard ( System Preferences > Print & Fax > + ). Pick MP530, name the printer something like "MP530 Gutenprint" and under "Print Using:" choose "Select a driver to use...", select "Canon PIXMA MP500 - Gutenprint v5.1.3" and then Add the printer.

The MP500 Gutenprint driver isn't a perfect substitute for the MP530 one, however, so you should do this in addition to installing the proper MP530 driver from the Canon website and adding the printer using that driver with a name like just "MP530" or "MP530 Canon". In a year or two of using the Gutenprint driver I've only once had a print job that wouldn't render correctly (some missing lines on the printout), and for that one time I had to switch to the Canon-supplied driver to get it to work. All the other times I find it very convenient to have two-sided printing available as an option.

The two sided printing isn't particularly fast, but it's a whole lot more convenient than manually printing the odd pages and then the even pages.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

HP Officejet 4315 All-in-one I am a Mac user and I cannot do duplex printing or two sided printing


Mac uses a generic driver for all printers. have you verified that duplex printing is check under the printer options?

System Prefs -> Print & Fax -> select the printer, Options and supplies -> driver.

NOTE: if it says print using "Generic postscript driver" you will need to install the manufacturer driver for the printer to get the option to turn on the duplex printing.

I have a pc and a macbook pro. I can duplex print on the pc but cannot seem to duplex print on the mac using word 2011. How do you duplex print using a mac and printing with a Samsung CLP 510 EMAIL


To print duplex on a Mac:
1. After finishing your document, go to File >> Print. You will see something like the following:tcdb28.png
2. Make sure that Layout is selected: tcdb28_0.png 3. Under two-sided, make sure than Long-edged binding (or something similar) is turned on. tcdb28_1.png

This will allow you to print duplex (two sided) on the Mac.

HP Laserjet 2015n printer


Sir, the Hp LaserJet 2015n printer CANNOT automatically do duplex printing since the printer does not include mechanism and paper storage areas to cycle the paper through the printer a second time and print on the reverse side. Manual duplex printing can be done as follows: Choose duplex printing and remove all sheets after the printing is complete. Turn the sheets over while preserving the orientation and insert them in the paper feed path. I have an HP 1020 laserjet printer which is similar to the 2015.

From mac leopard cannot print duplex on minolta qms 3100 printer


Hello, sorry you are having problems,
OK, are you sure your printer supports duplex printing and if you are sure you have the right driver installed, this is how you print in duplex mode on a Mac.
Open the document you want to print, Hit cmd+p to get the print dialogue window you should see this: 46da167.png

Notice you have the option of two sided printing in the same line as # of copies.
If you do not have this option in 10.5.6, then you might have the wrong driver, N.B. you must be sure to select the proper driver when you are creating the printer in the Print and Fax preference. Another way to ensure you have the driver properly installed, go to the manufacturer's website and download the Mac Driver Installer and run the installer, delete the printer you created and then re-create the printer again it should auto-recognize the printer..
What is the Printer Make and Model?
