I have a Canon Pixma MP500 (Multifunction). It's only about two months old.

Up until last weekend, I was still running Jaguar. My printer worked perfectly. I upgraded to Tiger on Saturday and didn't try to print anything until today. When I tried to, I saw my printer was no longer installed. However, it was detected. When I tried to add it, the correct driver was not listed. I put in the install disc that came with the printer, re-installed the software and restarted. The correct driver still didn't show up. I went to Canon's site, downloaded the drivers, installed again and restarted. They're still not listed. I tried to choose some of the drivers that are listed to see if I can print an email, but anything I spool just sits there in the queue.

What do I do next? I know it's plugged in correctly. I haven't touched it since I set it up two months ago and it was working perfectly fine just before I upgraded to Tiger.

    I have the same problem. I've been using an Epson Stylus Color 880 for years, but now the driver isn't listed and nothing prints. I was hoping to find a solution here.

    How did you solve the problem? I've got exactly the same - even though I installed the HP OS X Drivers 3.3 none of the supported printers show up in the list...

    Thanks a lot and happy new year!

    I am having the exact same thing happen with my Kodak Printer dock series 3. It worked last week, now nothing. I am running Tiger and the computer recoginizes the printer but no drivers show up on list. If anyone knows a solution please share.
