Question about Dell 3300MP Multimedia Projector
My company is a Mac platform office and we train on presentation skills. We brought our Apple 12' PowerBook laptop to a client site that had a ceiling mounted Dell 3300MP projector. The highest resolution available was a 1024 X 640 display and the film clips and slides were not able to be projected on to the screen. Is there a special connector or cable that is needed for use with Mac's or higher level screen resolution needs?
I believe the problem is that your PowerBook does not have the proper drivers for this projector. The maximum resolution on it should be 1600 x 1200, however Dell only certifies this with (and provides drivers for) Windows XP and Vista. I have been unable to find Macintosh drivers for it, and think it unlikely they exist. Without the exact drivers, your computer will find the best match. That usually means you cannot use advanced features, such as higher resolutions, with the projector. Sorry I don't have better news for you. If you perhaps copied your presentation over to a Windows laptop and connected it, it might work. I'm honestly rather disappointed in Dell for not providing Mac drivers for this.
