    Ok guys. I'v been running Leopard on my wife's MacBook Pro since we got it in May. We have a Canon MF4150 attached to it via USB and have been sharing it out from the Mac. I have been using Bonjour and have been printing just fine from both my XP machine and my daughter's Vista machine. I just upgraded to Snow Leopard. I upgraded the drivers to the Snow Leopard compatible drivers from Canon and everything prints fine from the Mac. However, whenever we try to print from one of the Windows machine I get this popup on the Mac:

    "Canon UFR II Printer Driver
    Key value specified for ticket does not exist.: 15512"

    And the printer is now "paused" whatever that means. When I try to unpause it, I get that some popup error. I end up having to delete the printer and re-add it to get printing (from the Mac) working again.

    I've deleted and re-added the printer many times. I even went to far as to remove the drive on the Mac manually (according to Canon's directions) and reinstall. I've deleted/recreated the printers on Windows using the Bonjour wizard. Nothing has helped.

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks very much.
    Don't really know why but I have managed to fix it. Mine is a i-sensys MF4660PL by the way.
    I deleted the printer, and when re-installing selected the Canon driver offered by Snow leopard which was the closest to mine (an MF4600). I then selected printer sharing agian and now it works!
    Really hope you sort it out!

    hi all

    I am having the same problem as mrdctaylor, if I use fusion or share the printer with a workstation (XP Pro ) , I have to delete and reinstall the drivers on the mac system. The printer is a canon MF6550 . I've had no luck with Canon support.
    thx

    Canon support is really pitiful--as is their support of OS X. I'm never buying a Canon printer again. Period.
