OS X :: Unable To Setup Printer / Computer Doesnot Recognize Printer

Aug 27, 2010

I have a pre-Intel iMac G5, running OS 10.5.8. I have been using an HP LaserJet P3005, connected with a USB2 cable, with no problems. The fuser got "muddy" on the 3005 so I bought a new HP LaserJet P2035n. I've loaded and reloaded the printer software from the provided CD, downloaded the driver software from the HP support website, but the computer doesn't recognize the printer. Called HP support and everything they suggested came up empty; they told me to exchange the printer for a another new one, but I get the same results with it. I'm using the same USB cable I used with the 3005 -- it worked perfectly with that printer as recently as this morning. What's wrong with my iMac or setup?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Computer Doesn't See Wireless Printer

May 22, 2012

I have a Canon Pixma MX860 at home.  I've connected three Macs to it, two running Lion and one running Snow Leopard. In each case, I simply clicked the "+" sign and the printer appeared under "default".  This became one of my standard examples of "why Macs are better than PCs" (process very compicated for PCs). 

I just got a new MacBook Pro at work running Snow Leopard, and it doesn't see the printer, and there doesn't seem to be any way I can add it by hand.  It *does* see the computer memory as an SMB device, but there doesn't seem to be any way to go from that to adding a printer.  I suspect this may have something to do with security settings, since they do lots of tweaks to computers before they give them to us.

MacBook Pro :: Will Snow Leopard 32 Bit Recognize 8gb Ram

Aug 24, 2010

I'm thinking of upgrading to 8gb ram for my Mid 2009 Macbook Pro 15" since I run a few virtual machines for work but was wondering if I can keep running at the 32 bit level or if I need to run Snow Leopard in 64 bit mode?

OS X :: Will Snow Leopard Recognize Mirror Configurations?

May 31, 2009

I'm currently setting up two 1TB hard drives as mirrored RAID drives.

Seems easy enough to do through Disk Utility, though zeroing out the data takes about 1.5 days for each drive, due to their size I assume.

Will it be easy to migrate these drives to Snow Leopard?

Will it just be a matter of adding them to the RAID list in SL's Disk Utility? Will it recognize them automatically?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: IPhoto Suddenly Won't Recognize

Mar 2, 2012

OS 10.6.8; iPhoto 9.2.1; Office for Mac 2004; Excel 11.6.6.The following weird thngs suddenly happened:

1. Apps in Finders Utilities folder disappear as one goes back in time using TM's "Enter Time Machine" command. The earlier in time you go to, the fewer the apps one finds.

2. iPhoto suddenly won't recognize .JPG imports from my camera (something it's been doing for years) when the camera is hooked to the Mac via USB cable.It works OK if photos are loaded to a memory stick and then imported.

3. In Excel, the Links button is never highlighted regardless of the status of the links!You can't tell by looking whether you have active links or not!

There were more, but the technician at our local Mac Clinic fixed them.But the three above are still there.He said that he had never seen anything like it.

OS X :: After Install Of Snow Leopard - Macbook Failed To Recognize HD

Sep 11, 2009

I was running 10.5.8 on both my white MacBook and Intel iMac 20," then I finally received the copy of Snow Leopard which I bought from Amazon. I decided to install it on my MacBook first to make sure the install would be successful before I upgraded my iMac, which has my important work stuff on it. The install was a success on the MacBook and after it was fully upgraded and updated, I simply opened "About This Mac" to verify the installation, opened Safari, browsed around for a minute, then proceeded to check out the new dock and airport menu features. After just a few minutes of playing around with it, I decided it was a legitimate installation, closed the MacBook, left it plugged into the power source, and walked to the other room to begin the upgrade onto my iMac. I left home for about an hour and once I had returned, the iMac installation was complete and it was running like a dream. After messing around on the iMac for a little while I decided to make sure the MacBook was still good to go. When I opened the Macbook up, all I saw was a blank screen. I assumed it was some sort of power-saver issue, because sometimes the screen doesn't like to come on right away when I open it up. My first instinct was to move my finger around on the trackpad and press some keyboard keys, which always wakes it up when this happens. Nothing seemed to be working, so at this point I pushed the power button and it proceeded to boot. As it began to boot I heard some sort of CLICKING from the HD, followed by a flashing folder with a question mark on the screen.

I assumed it was some sort of HD failure so I booted to the Snow Leopard install disk, ran Disk Utility and Startup disk, and my Mac COULD NOT FIND the HD - all it showed was the CD-ROM drive and Network Startup. I tried to reboot a few more times and almost gave up. It kept clicking at startup and I was thinking about the little magnetic arms in the HD. I thought they might be jammed in the HD for some reason. At this point, I didn't know what to do. So, as it was booting up again with the plain grey backdrop, as a last resort, pretending I was the Fonz or something, I physically whacked the area on my MacBook near the power button where the sound of the clicks was coming from. AS SOON as I did that, the clicking stopped and a few seconds later the APPLE ICON appeared... instead of that dreaded question mark folder icon! The MacBook started booting up back to it's upgraded self again! Finally I was back at the desktop, and with a sigh of relief, began typing this forum. Now, my question is WHAT THE @#$% HAPPENED?? And how on Earth did smacking it one actually fix it? Is this problem related to the recent installation of Snow Leopard or just my MacBook dying? (It is 2 years old) If anyone has any ideas as to what caused this, and how I can prevent this situation from happening in the future.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Itunes Unable To Recognize Ipod 4th Gen

Apr 8, 2012

I tried to put new music on my iPod. This has consistently been a problem because Itunes says that the ID that i'm getting my applications from is not the same as the one issued to the iTunes application on the computer I get my music from ( because the iTunes on this computer has no purchased music, only free promotional mixtapes, so it isn't linked to any iTunes account). This forces me to have to restore my iPod to factory quality every time I want to apply new music to my iPod. 

This time the problem is worse- I updated Itunes earlier to the newest version ( I hadn't updated my music or Ipod software in a very long time), and now Itunes is unable to recognize my Ipod. I get the error message, "iTunes was unable to load data class information from sync services" after iTunes tries to recognize the iPod for a sync for about 30 seconds. 

I read this article; [URL] which suggests that I update to the newest version of iTunes, then reset my sync history. The problem now? I can't even get the preferences tab to load. Whenever I try to load the preferences tab, iTunes freezes up and becomes unresponsive. This is extremely frustrating. I have to go through all this troubleshooting, errors, and updating just because my iTunes isn't registered because it has no purchased music? 


>iTunes won't respond to my 4th gen iPod

>I get apps from the app store off of my father's Apple ID that I'm posting from

>Causes me to have to restore my Ipod to factory settings everytime I want to get new music for my iPod because my iTunes application on my computer isn't registered to an Apple ID

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Followed Steps But Mail Does Not Recognize ICloud Password

May 16, 2012

I followed the steps outlined in [URL]to move my Snow Leopard's MobileMe mail account to an iCloud account in the Mail app (deleted the old MobileMe account from the sidebar and followed the steps to create a new one for [URL]. Before doing that, I had gone online and changed my very old AppleID's password so that it conformed to the new requirements.  I also set up the MobileMe in System Preferences to be using that new password.  It seems to be happy with the new setup/password.   

I can get my iCloud mail on my iPad and on my MBAir when I use Safari.  But the Mail app continues to loop, asking me to enter my password -- and then informing me that "The MobileMe IMAP server "imap.mail.me.com" rejected the password for user [URL]I compared my Mail settings for the new iCloud account to what's given in the instructions and cannot spot anything amiss.

OS X :: Snow Leopard HP Printer Drivers?

Aug 28, 2009

I just installed Snow Leopard successfully, but it doesn't know my HP2600N network laser printer. It's not in the support document and the closest printer, a 2605N is supprted. But HP's site says "HP LaserJet - Software Information for Mac OS X 10.6" and "Obtain Software", but there's nothing there. Any idea of when HP will support the 2600N? (All other upgrades had no problem with the 2600N).

I need a printer for my macbook running snow leopard. I want an all in one. The 2 I use the most (daily) are scanning & printing (mostly documents). I want something that has reasonably priced ink and separate ink cartridges. And ALL functions on the printer to work.

Twice, the name of the Epson flashed briefly onto the add printer screen and then disappeared. Any suggestions?

OS X :: Deleting Printer Drivers In Snow Leopard

Sep 10, 2009

After I installed Snow Leopard, I installed all of the printer drivers on the disc. It was a rather hefty size, over 1GB. Is there a way, manually or automatically, to delete all the ones I don't need? I've done a search, and a couple of places (possibly outdated) have pointed me to Library > Printers, and that all the printer drivers should be there. When I do that, I only see the application for my own printer.............

OS X :: Setting Up Network Printer In Snow Leopard?

Jul 11, 2010

I have a Mac Pro which I just upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. I have an HP Multi-Function 2840 hooked up to the router via ethernet. This printer previously worked through Leopard.

Now, my understanding is that for SL, the drivers for this printer are in the operating system and can not be downloaded from HP.

How do I set this up as a network printer? I would like to be able to print from my other computers in the house as well.

Please Note: Snow Leopard only provides drivers for the printing function of this machine. I am going to have to revert to other means to use this device to scan.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: My Printer Cannot Print Text

Apr 21, 2012

I am having a problem with my Canon Pixma 5200. For some reason it has stopped recognising text. It will print out the test print ok. I can print pictures but no text. I have used different applications, Pages, Word and pdf and although it sounds as though it is printing I end up with a blank sheet. I have a letterhead with my email address on it and having typed a long letter only the email address came out (this was in the same font as the letter but a smaller size).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot See Shared Printer On MacBook

I'm having trouble printing to a printer shared by my Mac Pro running 10.6.8 from my MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 Printer sharing is turned on on my Mac pro, they are connected to the same network, the MacBook via Airport and the Mac Pro via ethernet. I can quite happily swap files between them. When I try to add a printer on the MacBook the Canon iP4300 simply doesn't show up under the list of available printers as I think it should do.
