My Canon MF8380 had been working fine with my MacBook Pro (printing wirelessly), and all of a sudden today I am getting an error that says: "Canon CMFP Printer Driver: Printer is not responding. Check the printer power and connection, and then try sending printing job again."
I have tried the basics - turning off and on the printer, rebooting the MacBook Pro, printing from different applications, making sure Job Accounting is not checked in setup, seeing that the driver seems like it's acknowledged, checking and unchecking sharing prefs.
Canon advertises this printer as having ONLY Windows drivers, however there is a solution if you are interested in buying the printer (I bought one for around AUD150, delivered in Melbourne). As reported in Macosxhints here there is an OSX driver for the Canon LBP3000. Go to the linked Canon page (which is in Japanese) then scroll to near the bottom of the page for links to the driver (MXCAPT160). Download that and install it. Edit: The printer dialogue (when you attach it) is then in English. It doesn't offer all the options available in Windows (mainly output quality & economy modes) but is fine for straightforward printing to A4, letter, legal, A5, A6 and a couple of Japanese envelope sizes (Yougata-4 approximates DL).
I got a used printer Canon BJC-85 and realise with my very limited knowledge that it does not have the correct/updated version of driver for my iBook G4. It only mentions PowerMac G3 in the installation instructions. A friend told me that you can download the appropriate version for my laptop from the internet, but I don't know how to do this. Could you give me any advice about how to do this?
I recently obtained a 2013 Macbook air 13" and upgraded the os to Yosemite. I plugged in my travel printer, Canon BJC-85 and there is no driver compatible. The mac recognized it as plugged in but under the list of available installed drivers there is nothing that will work with it.
I tried to do a software update but it says my system is already up to date. I went to the canon website and it said mac OS X already has the drivers.
I used this printer on another mac OS X laptop and it had the drivers already like it should.
Info: MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
I have Canon CanoScan LIDE 50 and I do not know how to get it work. I have downloaded and installed the latest driver from Canon official webpage, and I also have downloaded and installed CanoScan Toolbox 5.0, but still it wont work.
I just purchased a Time Capsule for my Mac, and now I am able to hook up a Canon laser printer directly to it. My Mac recognizes the printer connected to the Time Capsule, but keeps aksing me to "Choose a Driver or Printer Model" when I am setting it up. I have downloaded the Canon print driver from the Canon website and I can find the Canon folder on my hard drive. However, it seems that I can't fine the actual driver.
I bought a Canon LBP3000 laser printer and I was told it would work on my iMac but it seems that this printer only works with a Japanese OS X and not on an English system. Does anybody have a driver for an English OS X?
I just downloaded and installed the new Canon drivers from their website that are supposed to support Scanner/Printer functions for my MX870 with Yosemite, but when I go to Settings for Printer/Scanner and try to add the printer from the wireless network, the computer does not detect it.
Info: iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
I have installed the Canon MP380 printer driver for my new imac but I cannot find it listed under the Canon model name in Printer Setup. All I see are "gimp beta" this or that. When I try to print the text is too small. It's not filling up the standard size piece of paper I am printing on. What am I doing wrong here??? This is very confusing.
I am unable to install a software driver for a Canon film scanner FS4000US. I have downloaded it from Canon then open the package click the install and it asks for a location namely the Applications folder. Then it says it has been installed re -start etc, but still no driver.I am using Mac OS 10.6. Any suggestions greatly received. I have repaired/disk and permissions and it still does not work.
I would like to use a perfectly good Canon Pixma ip4200 printer with OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.5 and Yosemite 10.10.1 on my 2013 model iMac but Canon say they do not do a driver for these more recent versions of OSX later than 10.7. Is there any way to get this to work?
i am trying to disassemble my MacBook pro 2010 as i need to change the top part (which is attached the keyboard) has couple of dints on it. i can get the unibody top part for around $270 , my question is what screwdrivers i need to disassemble MBP unibody 2010 is there a special screw driver for this? , do i just need a screwdriver or any thing else too?
also i was not able to find any good how to video for this .
I was having problems printing from my Canon LBP6000. Print jobs remained held in the queue. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Mac CAPT Ve r340 driver from Canon's website, no improvement. The printer works fine with my Windows laptop. I found an option to remove all printers from the Print preferences section. I can't remember how I did this, but all printers were removed. I reinstalled the above driver, but now in the 'print & scan' - 'add printer' section, I have no printer options. And no idea how to get printer options.
Does anyone have / know where I can download a driver for isight for Mac OS X v.10.5.2 Every time I try and use it, it tells me that its in use by another program. I tried shutting down everything and it still does not seem to want to work.
I have a Canoscan 4400F which is not recognised by my MBP (early 2008) or my iMac (early 2007). (Error message is 'Unable to find driver'.) Despite installing various drivers which are supposed to be Leopard compatible, no luck so far.
Does anyone know of a driver which will work, or alternatively if I have to replace, a recommend a reasonably priced scanner which is Leopard compatible. Scanner will primarily be used for scanning documents for archiving and old photo prints for adding to iPhoto.
I'm soon to be upgrading from my iMac to a Mac Pro. I do a lot of 3d modeling and animation as well as visual effects for films but have to use external computers to render due to the limitations of the iMac's memory.
I have been looking into upgrading the Graphics card from the standard to the ATI Radeon 4870HD and discovered that you can, quite easily get the cheaper PC and flash it to run on the Mac Pro.
have only just started the journey of installing a VM on my iMac and have hit what looks like a common problem but I cant see a common answer!
I've got an iMac running OS X (10.6.4 to be precise) with a 3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB RAM and 500G HDD.
I installed Parallels 5 preferring it over bootcamp because you can switch over without having to reboot.
I've then download Windows 7 64bit version from the Microsoft store and run through the installation / creation of a new vm in parallels.
All seemed to be fine for the first 45 seconds but then I've hit a pop up called "Load Driver" saying "No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK" - on clicking OK out of that pop up - I have a choice to BROWSE, RESCAN to find the right "driver".
My question is - what is the right driver? what device is the driver needed for? I've searched around and most suggestions point towards going into device manager - well - I'm still on STAGE 1 of the install of Windows 7 where it says its "Collecting information".
When I downloaded Windows 7 from the Microsoft store it provided 2 files:
Windows7_Professional_ISO_64bit.iso and bootsect.exe
but no other files. I stored it in Documents/Windows7 files.
Apologies if you've had this question a thousand time but could someone kindly suggest how I find out what device drivers I need?
This scanner was able to scan 3D objects as if they were photographed professionally, if you put a colored cloth behind the object. Great depth of field. Used to have one, I just bought several of them, I have a beige G3, but I have no software/driver. Where to go?
I just bought me a brand new Canon DR-2020U, but to my dismay, I noticed that it doesn't have OS X drivers, and OS X doesn't even flinch when I connect the scanner to it.
I googled for drivers, but the official site does not say anything about those drivers. I have, of course, the Windows drivers and I can operate it through Parallels, but I feel a little stupid for paying $700 for a scanner which does not have necessary drivers to operato on my OS X.
I tried to install counter-strike on my vmware image of windows xp pro x64 edition. The thing is that when I opened up the application, I was told that I could only run in software mode. How do play the game utilizing my geforce 8600gt graphics card?
I have already checked the box VirtualMachine->Settings->Display->Accelerate 3D graphics. So this shouldn't be the problem.
I also tried downloading a driver from nvidias web site, but I could not install it.
I am on my new 27" iMac last night when all of a sudden the display froze and pix-elated for a second and then went black and a few seconds turned back on with an error message at the bottom right screen saying my display adapter had stopped . . . . .
I was in Windows 7 64bit Professional at the time. I also noticed that Apple is wanting download a newer version of Boot Camp which I will download tonight!
I went to the ATI website and found a new driver dated 4-2010 and downloaded it. All seems well but was wondering if anyone has had the same issue?
