    Hi, I just got a new hp 5850 printer. I went to install the software with it but when I open the CD and click on the file. The powerbook does not recognize what application to use when opening the software and requests that I pick one. I am new to mac so I have no idea what to pick. I went on hp website and downloaded the software and the same thing happend. Please help me fix this. Thanks so much.

    Hey, you were right. I just installed the right software mac ox10. Now, it's a wireless printer do you know how I make my computer connect to it? Thanks

    I don't have any wireless devices so I'm not sure but here is my guess:

    Go into the Utilities folder within the Applications folder.

    Launch Printer Setup Utility.

    Click on Add printer... in the toolbar.

    It should ask you for a type as should in the screenprint I made. It may default to Rendezvous, which should find it without any help. You may need to select a type though.

    It should identify all printers available for that type. Choose the correct one.
