    My MacBook Pro recognizes my printer, but won't let me add it. What should I do? Thanks in advance. :)

    What type of printer do you have? Have you checked the website of the company for Mac drivers?

    It's an HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-one. It was recognized and added before I had a kernel panic, but I don't know what happened? :confused:

    Try these drivers, there's an option for Mac OS X drivers. See if that gets it to work.

    If you are still having that problem, I had the same exact one where my printer was recognized but I got an error message saying "This service is not currently available" every time I tried adding it. I took it to the apple store and they re-installed the OS and it worked.
