  1. Thanks guys! Kext in post 200 worked perfectly for me! I have the StarTech 2 port card. Just installed and restarted.
  2. Canon MP610 seen as scanner only in OSX - Help!

    I found it here, trying now: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=198485 n8210 I could kiss you! Working and all is well! Now if I can just get my front panel audio working I will be out of things to fix on this beast! Thank you so much!

    Thanks I'll give it a try, my copying settings over from my old computer didn't work.

    It works fine on a regular Mac, just not my hackintosh (I have a Mac Pro I'm replacing with this, well hopefully, I don't really want a computer that can't use a printer). I was running Snow Leopard on the Pro, I should have copied the drivers over, but stupid me figured it'd be better to go with a clean install. These are the listed drivers/software: ICA Driver Ver. 1.3.0m (Mac OS X 10.6) icaosx130m.dmg 1.3.0m 5.37 MB 01/05/2010 MP610 series CUPS Printer Driver Ver. (Mac OS X 10.5/10.6) mp610sosxcp102600ea8-2.dmg 9.51 MB 09/07/2009 MP610 series Scanner Driver Ver. 13.9.1 (Mac OS X 10.2/10.3/10.4/10.5/10.6) mp610sosxsd1391ej7.dmg 13.9.1 7.07 MB 09/08/2009 MP610 series Printer Driver Ver. 6.9.3 (Mac OS X 10.2/10.3/10.4/10.5) mp610sosxpd693ej7.dmg 6.9.3 6.22 MB 06/15/2009 So Tiger drivers are the same as Leopard, unless there's a place in the package where I can extract them and install them manually instead of using the installer? Actually I just had an idea. I'll try reinstalling OSX on my Mac Pro, then if I can get it to work, I'll just copy the preferences and printer folders over to the hackintosh.
  5. Hi guys! So after an hour on the phone with Canon and getting nowhere, I'm posting here (maybe I should have just done that in the first place). I have a Canon MP610 printer/scanner/copier. I am running OSX 10.6.4 on my newly built Hackintosh (i'll put specs below). For some reason, OSX only sees my printer as a scanner when I go to "Print & Fax" in System preferences. I have no idea how to fix this, I'll list what I've already tried. I've tried all the drivers for my printer on Canon's website (including the 10.5 ones), I've tried repairing disk permissions, I've tried setting up a second admin profile and seeing if it would see it there, I've tried booting in safe mode to see if it shows up. System Profiler sees it just fine, so it's something between the drivers and the printer. The printer works fine when I boot into Windows 7. Can anyone help? Let me know if you need something posted from my system specs. Thanks! -SpyderWeiss i7 920 2.66 Ghz (overclocked) 6GB OCZ RAM @ 1600 EVGA GTX 295 CO-OP edition EVGA e758 Motherboard
  6. Thanks for the reply. So I've been reading about compatibility, and it seems NVIDIA has better support as far as hackintosh's go. So I have a new set of specs: Antec TruePower New TP-750 Blue 750W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE ...

My Mac Pro I'm trading in should sell for around $1200-1300 on ebay, so that leaves me with about 360-460 for a video card. Is the GTX 295 worth the performance bump? Or am I best off with a 285? I've found both on ebay, the 285 goes for $200-$300 on eBay, the $295 is $400-500. I will be doing a lot of gaming on the Windows side of things, I have a 24" LG monitor. I like running games at 1980x1080 with everything on.
  7. Thanks Mackilroy! Newegg actually made an exception and is accepting my card back, so I'm going to hunt down a 4890 on Ebay. Are you the same Mackilroy on the tonymacx86 boards? If so, I noticed in your profile you were running a 4890, any issues you've had with it? What exact model do you have? Thanks again!
  8. We are all in this boat together! This is what I've assembled on Newegg.com. Any recommendations on changing anything? Also, I currently have the ASUS EAH4870 already, I tried flashing it to work with my current 1,1 2.66Ghz 2006 Mac Pro, but it doesn't want to allow me to flash So I've decided to sell the pro and just build a Hackintosh. I was curious if anyone knew any Mac Pro 2.66 2006 comparison benchmarks to a machine similar to this. I'm curious how much performance increase I will get. I've tried googling around, but I can't find anything comparing the 2. I should mention that I'll be using Windows for gaming purposes, and the Mac for running everything else including an EyeTV device.

I know Blu-ray playing isn't supported yet on the mac (as far as I am aware), but I want it for the PC side of things. I could drop it though, it would save $95. I'm considering asking Newegg if I can swap the ASUS card for the XFX model they currently have listed as I have read XFX seems to play nicer. Any thoughts on that? Newegg also has a XFX 4890 (out of stock right now, says it will be back in late this week), is the performance difference that big between the two? Enough to justify an extra $60? Total cost with shipping: $1,141.57 I appreciate any advice. Thanks!
