Install Macintosh software for direct connections (USB)

Install Macintosh software for direct connections (USB)

Connect a USB cable between the device USB port and the computer USB port. Use a standard 2-meter (6.56-foot) USB cable.
Insert the device CD into the CD-ROM drive and run the installer. If the CD menu does not run automatically, double-click the CD icon on the desktop.
Double-click the Installer icon in the HP LaserJet Installer folder.
Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

USB printer queues are created automatically when the device is attached to the computer. However, the queue will use a generic PPD if the installer has not been run before the USB cable is connected. Complete the following steps to change the queue PPD.

On the computer hard drive, open Applications, open Utilities, and then open Printer Setup Utility.
Select the correct printer queue, and then click Show Info to open the Printer Info dialog box.
In the pop-up menu, select Printer Model, and then, in the pop-up menu in which Generic is selected, select the correct PPD for the device.
Print a test page from any software program to make sure that the software is correctly installed.

If installation fails, reinstall the software. If this fails, see the installation notes or late-breaking readme files on the device CD or the flyer that came in the box for help.
