In this video, Gary from MacMost gives some tips on how to set up a new printer with your Mac. Some printers don't work for Macs, so make sure it's compatible before purchasing it, by checking the internet. Check if a USB cable comes with a cable and buy one if necessary. Ignore the CD that comes with the printer, because it probably doesn't have the correct Mac drivers. Leopard or Snow Leopard systems will find the correct drivers for you automatically most of the time. You might need to download the driver from the manufacturer's web site. Install the drivers and then your computer will recognize the printer. If you have an problems with installation, you can find solutions on web forums or at the Genius Bar at the Mac store. This video shows simple ways to get your new printer to work with your Mac.
