    Hello everyone,

    I got rid of my crappy old 10 year old printer, and bought a new HP PSC 2210 All in one printer. It is currently plugged into my windows computer. I try to print from my imac, and when it prints, it is completely incoherent, not at all what intended to prints.

    It looks somewhat like this:

    Meaningless...

    Any way to fix this?

    Thanks!

    This is well-known and has been discussed in thousands of threads on this forum--78 of them started just last week. You cannot use the USB driver to communicate with a networked printer. Your may use standard Windows (as documented on that platform) features to setup your printer so that it will print properly, you may use MacOS X standard features as documented in the MacOS X Help menu, or you may search this forum.

    try downloading and installing Gutenprint and select the HP PSC 2210 driver in this window.
