I did that first befor I reloaded the softwear for the printer and verifyed the permision and repaired the permision

You need to uncheck it to use the printer on the Mac and vise versa.
Expert:  Mike replied 6 years ago.
Does that make sense? You can't use it on both at the same time?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Im not sure what you mean by uncheck but I think youmean on parelels to go into devises then USB then activat the USB port for printing. I have had to do that for some time then it stoped working as first message I have reloaded the Mac disc ans re run verify and repair and it apears to be working at the moment. Fingers crosed that that has sorted it out. ATB Keith
