    I wish I hadn't upgraded to Mountain Lion

    My older Dell 5100cn laser isn't compatible. I bought an inexpensive HP Officejet 6600 all in one machine at Best Buy which the sales rep said was compatible with Mountain Lion. Got it hooked up only to learn it isn't compatible either. Mountain Lion is going to cost me a lot more than $20 by the time I find a printer/scanner that is compatible.

    I wish I hadn't upgraded to Mountain Lion now.

    Sales reps at Best Buy generally don't know anything about the stuff they sell.

    Do you have backups such that you can revert to Lion for now? It's hopeful drivers will be released.

    I'm actually surprised the 5100cn won't work, since it's a PostScript 3 printer and should just work with anything without special drivers.

    Should be fine. If it works with Lion, it should work with ML.

    Lion and onwards, scanners and printers were required to be updated through Apple update system, instead. You can manually insert a driver for the Printer, but since this is a recent printer and from HP, it should work fine.

    Also a quick google search resulted in this:
