It's a canon MX860 and had to replace hard drive on Mac

Customer Question
It's a canon MX860...

It's a canon MX860 and had to replace hard drive on Mac desktop with High Sierra and now Canon can't be found

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your MX860?

Just got the computer back yesterday from Apple ... with new OS, it doesn't work

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

According to forums & support this is not unusual, Canon website says there's no driver so I'm not sure if I need to get a new printer
