    Morning guys
    Downloaded the necessary driver for my macbook pro so i can use the scanner on a SAMSUNG XPRESS M2070W

    It has said the installation is successful. So why when I go to System Preferences - Printers and scanners I cant find it?

    The driver software for the printer itself has a seperate scan assistant.....This is useless as all it says

    "Scanner device is not responding, please check it is connected etc"

    Surely I don't have to manually hunt down the printer after installation and add it?


    Cheers guys

    You installed the driver. Adding the printer is a different action.

    In System Preferences>Printers & Scanners click the "+" symbol at the bottom of your empty printer list. If your printer is available it should show up and you can add it.
