Answer

How do I install/add the Mac printer driver to the printer list for Bravo SE, II, Pro XR Series, or LX Series Printer?

Installing the printer driver on a Mac is a two step process:

STEP 1: Make sure the unit is connected and turned on. Also, the printer driver PKG file must be installed. Either run the driver PKG file from the install disc or download it from our driver downloads area. 

If you are updating an already added printer, STOP NOW. Step 2 is not necessary. The driver has been updated. Verify the update was successful by using the information in this article.

STEP 2: To add the printer to the printer list, follow the specific instructions below for your installed operating system. (If you do not know your OS version, go to the Apple icon and choose "About this Mac.")

*Instructions refer specifically to Disc Publisher II but are applicable to all products that include a Mac driver.*

OS 10.5x Instructions

If you have installed the Printer driver according to STEP 1 above, the printer should automatically add itself to your printer list as soon as the USB cable is connected. If the USB was already connected while you were installing the printer driver, simply unplug it and plug it back in to get the Mac to find the printer and automatically add it. If it does not add, or if you would like to verify it was added properly, follow these steps.

1. Go to the Apple - System Preferences - Choose Print and Fax.

2. The screen below will appear. Added printers will appear on the list on the left. If you do not see your printer on the list, click the plus to manually add the printer. To find out more about that printer, select it. To open the Print Queue click the button indicated. Opening the print queue will allow you to access the configuration utility button, which will allow you to view ink levels and perform maintenance.



2. Clicking the plus will open the add printer window. (1) Check to make sure the default button is selected. That will show you all connected printers. (2) If the printer is connected and recognized by the Mac it will appear on the list. Select it. (3) Make sure Print Using matches the printer name. (4) Click Add.
