    I'm on my friends macbook right now and I'm trying to add her printer to her macbook. When inside the printer browser the printer does show up on the list, however the "add" button can't be clicked on. Any ideas what I can do? Thanks.

    Dell doesn't appear to offer Macintosh drivers for that printer. Hopefully you can get it to work.

    The Dell you mention looks very similar to this Lexmark X3350 High Definition AIO Photo Printer. A lot of Dell printers have been re-badged Lexmarks, so you might find the Lexmark driver will work.
    Try here for the download.
    No promises though.... :)
    Post back if it works - you might help someone else. In fact, post back if it doesn't, you might save someone from wasting their time.

    I just called my friend with the printer and told her what you suggested. The printer added, however it doesn't print. She isn't the greatest with computers so I'm going back over there tomorrow to see if I can get it to work with the drivers you provided. I'll give an update tomorrow after I take a look at the computer.

    it hasn't worked for me. i just tried.

    it let me add it but it won't print.
    i added it as the 3300 series.
    after downloading the from link, i still didn't see the printer you named.
