    Hey,

    I have a new Macbook Pro, and I also have a desktop PC, with windows 7 on it, 2 other mac laptops and 2 other Winodws laptops in the house.

    Total of 6 computers,

    My windows 7 PC, is connected to a printer and set-up to network...

    I tryed to add the networked printer to my Macbook Pro, but I keep getting the following Error:

    Does anyone know how I can fix it?
    All the other Windows PC's connect to it fine.

    What printer is it? I got the $100 free printer from apple for the school discount. I called Canon and they said that I couldn't have my printer connected via usb to a PC and print from my mac even if that printer is shared. I tried a few things and never got it to work.

    I took it back and got a Wifi printer and then everything worked just fine. You may just have to get a wifi printer.
