Customer Question

upgraded to Mac X OS 10.12.1 but printer driver for my Imageclass D480 will not work. I assume the latest version is 10.11 but the driver version that I'm able to install is 10.4 . I've downloaded the latest driver from Canon as of 9/20/16. Any ideas?

JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
