Normally, there is no need to use an installation disc, if the printer's driver is available online.
Connect the printer to USB and turn it ON. Go to System Preferences Print & Scan pane. There is a sidebar where your current printers are listed. Click the plus sign at the bottom of the sidebar. The Add Printer window opens. If your printer is recognized, it should be listed in that window. Select it. If the default settings below are OK, click Add.
If the printer's driver is not on your Mac (and it should not be if this is the first time adding), it gets downloaded and installed. Your printer should appear in the sidebar of the Print & Scan pane.
If you have more than one printer (including share printers on the local network), they are all available from the print dialog in apps. You can set one printer as the default in the Print & Scan pane.
