Try this, go to system preferences>print/fax, highlight the printer and delete it. (minus sign) with the printer off connect it to the USB on the Mac and turn on the printer. If it does not show up by itself, click add printer and type in the name Lexmark P4300 ,set it as your default printer from the drop down menu. Hope this helps.

Maybe some info here:
My screen didn't show me the full message on the last post, as I had be connecting to a bunch of different monitors today.
Try with no other peripherals connected, different port, different cable.
This is a bit strange, as I set one of these up today for a friend, with no problem.

Try an smc reset:
Maybe there is a problem with the system recongnition, can't hurt anything.
Could be a part of the issue.
Then try the other steps afore mentioned.

For the last time: This is not a cable issue.....
I have tried different cables. So many Lexmark users cannot all have cable issues with a Lexmark scanner and Image Capture and Mountain Lion.
Please stop giving such advice for an issue that is patently related to software. Look at the discussion forums and see that there are many, many Mac users with exactly the same problem and the same symptoms.

My advice was not an imposition. I personally experienced a situation like that. And changing the USB cable magically solved the problem.
Your mileage may vary Deon S
