Tried with the Generic Postscript driver instead of the Canon one and the printer queue accepts the print job.
If the 'Driver' is changed to the correct named Canon one; e.g Canon IR 3570/PS then the printer queue displays:
+You need to install software to use this printer. To install the software, choose Software Update from the Apple menu. If the software for your printer isn’t available in Software Update, contact the manufacturer of your printer.+iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.6)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 19, 2009 2:14 AM (in response to Grant Sayer)The guys with Canon in Australia have solved the problem.
On the link below, you find a brand new driver for OSX 10.6.
I have installed it, and it works perfect with all the features, booklet, punching, stabling etc.
I am just wondering, why this driver is not on the Canon Europe website???

Looks like they removed the drivers for some reason since you posted! If they're working OK for you, do you have a link I could download from please?
Maybe PM me?

The UFR2 driver (now version 2.05) does not list the iR3570 as a supported model. So if your iR3570 has PostScript, then you can use the Canon PPD installer. If your iR3570 does not have support for PostScript, then you will have to use Generic PCL Laser Printer for your printer model.
If you need to download the PPD Installer, you can do so via the downloads section of the Canon NZ web site. Simply enter iR3570 in the Search field to get a list of all the drivers for this model.
