    Hey guys!

    I have a iMac and Windows 7 Laptop on the same network.

    I installed my Canon MP530 to my iMac, and I enabled sharing.
    I also enabled SMB File Sharing.

    Basically, I followed all instructions from Finder Help to share my printer with the Windows 7 Laptop.

    On the Windows 7 Laptop, the printer shows up and everything--when I click Print, nothing comes out of the printer.. :confused:

    My iMac can printer to my printer just fine.

    Anyone got some ideas? Thanks in advance! =)

    My guess is that you are not using the proper driver on your Windows computer. Use the LaserWriter [or generic PostScript] driver rather than the Canon MP530 driver.
