os x has epson drivers built in i think , so just plug the printer in and spotlight printer setup util and add it that waydmachine said:Dell doesnt make their own printers, they just slap their name on it and sell it. I believe that Epson makes their printers, you might be able to try and Epson driver and have that work.
This is true for some things, but both the printers I've bought to use with my PowerBook have required me to install drivers from the included CD. No big deal, and I didn't have any trouble getting them to work, but it was more complicated than just plugging them in.DaftUnion said:It's a mac. Plug it in. It works. End of story.
Actually, last I heard Dell uses Lexmark. The A920 is a X1150 IIRC which does support Mac OS 9 as well as Mac OS X. I would try that driver although I have no first-hand knowledge that it will work.dmachine said:Dell doesnt make their own printers, they just slap their name on it and sell it.

You buy your MacBook at an Apple store? They should have a $100 printer rebate going on. Applied to one of their $99 printers, the printer nets out to $0.i have an A924, and i am having the same problem. Pretty fed up, might just go buy a new printer. Just got rid of my Dell laptop for the new MacBook, very satisifed!
Unfortunaetly, Dell's printers are only supported by Windows 2000 and XP. It even says so on there site. I guess you could try plugging it in and going under Printer Setup Utility, but I don't think that will help. Lexmark makes Dell's printers, so you could try going to the Lexmark website and find the printer that matches yours closely and see if those drivers work.
