Is it possible that the Printer needs to have a certain "piece" in order for it to be compatible with the MacBooks? That is what I was told by the Ricoh people, co I gave up.

I have never heard an explanation like that one. Sounds like Ricoh representative is avoiding the issue. It's not just ML either, I use software that prints through a Windows Server 2008 environment and there too the Ricoh drivers don't work.

I knew something was up, most people do not know how to work with Apple products so they make excuses to not have to work on them. ML? I think that is what I am doing... I am going through an access database on a WIndows Server and I am still not able to print. I am going to try Tomolas's instructions and hopefully I should be able to print... Fingers crossed.

ML = Mountain Lion. And by the way, while I can now print from MBP, I still cannot print when working in the "hosted" Windows environment! It really ***** because I have to use an inefficient workaround to print. Bascially I end up saving documents to my MPB hard drive, opening them on my MBP, and then printing. Major pain!
Anyway, please share if you find a solution.

Yeah, this whole thing is driving me crazy!! I have had my MB since the end of 09' but I was only using it for play until recently, and I am now using it for work. I do not know all the terminology or how to do certain things on it, unfortunately. I downloaded the 2 drivers and the Ghostscript package but I still cannot find the printer to add it. Any suggestions? Also, I do know that I am not able to pull anything out of the database in order to save it on my MB. I hope I can get this printer to work for me through the database if not, I do not know what I am going to do about it.

Where do I find the PXL Driver? I can print on the printer by adding it with it's IP address, but it is printing out in code. I am thinking the PXL Driver is what I need? I have all the other things that were recommended to download. I am going CRAZY trying to figure this out. Any help would be great, thanks!

Ms.AboutFace, please, see my guide couple of posts above. It includes the link to pxl driver.

Thank you for the provided details.
It also solved my printing problem on Ricoh Aficio 1515MF.

I am havng the exact same problem with Aficio MP C6000. I downloaded the 3 package. My only problem is I have no idea how to install the printer driver. It is sitting on my desktop, but when I install the printer using IP, I do not know what to select?
Please help, my IT team is not very helpful.

You can have a look at my post on the first page.
I think you should try to download those 3 packages and then double click each and go through the 'next next' process.
After that go to place you took the screeshot from. If there is a "PXL" option on that "Use:", the select that. If not, then try default values. The "pxl" option should be somewhere on that road, I don't remember exactly where. Whe you see option "pxl" in some option, select it.
I also noticed your ip address is not correct on the screenshot, but you probably know about that.

Choose "Use: Select Printer Software," then find Generic PCL 6/ PCL XL hpijs.
And I think you should use IP > HP JetDirect instead of LPD.

Thanks Greg...this worked like a charm. I used IP > HP JetDirect and the PCL showed up in the list for me to utilize.
