Customer Question

I just purchased a Canon MX6820 series printer. I have an Apple MacBook Air which is around 6 yrs old, it is an 11" and does notsupport a disk drive for the driver. Usually, I would just plug the wire from printer into laptop and it would recognize the printer and would begin printing, I have been trying for several hrs to achieve this task,. I downloaded the driver, however, it will not print. I am not very computer literate or savvy, could you please assist me?
