    I have a Aluminium MacBook and for about a month or so it has been sharing files with my XP desktop PC easily.

    So I decided that I wanted to print wirelessly to my printer (which is connected to my XP PC via USB) from my MacBook. When I set up the printer, it finds it and everything, so i go to Word and try and print a Word Document.

    On the jobs manager on my XP PC, it says the document name is: 'Remote Downlevel Document' and it says spooling, printing, the either sits there forever or just vanishes.

    Can someone please tell me where I'm going wrong?

    My Printer is a Canon PIXMA iP1800.

    Thanks

    Not to insult your intelligence but you did install the Canon drivers on the Mac before adding it to your Print & Fax preferences right?
