    I just got a refurbished 15" MBP (2008 version) last week. Today I tried to print something by hooking up the printer with USB. The print job starts, then pauses, then if I click "resume printing", it ejects the page, then repeats the same problem. I have tried:

    deleting old printer driver, and installing new one
    deleting and reinstalling the new printer driver
    deleting the printer from the queue, then plugging it back in
    restarting both printer and computer a few times

    Does this sound like a software problem? It is a fairly old printer; is it possible that even with a new driver, it's not going to work with Snow Leopard? Any other ideas?

    Don't know if you sorted this out by now or just got another printer.... :)

    However, it sounds like it could be that either you need a more current version printer driver or that your old printer is not supported in SL....

    Check compatibility info on printer manufacturer's website...
