Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
, I can help with your printer issue.
After installing the driver, did you then plug in the USB cable to your Mac?
Were there any error messages or pop up screens?
driver not compatible with current OS

Click [+], select [CP780]from the pop-up window and click [Add].After you have finished registering your printer,click [SELPHY Photo Print] from the Dock (thebar at the bottom of the desktop).
Yes, it's painful, I had to buy a new printer when I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 8.1
The instructions above might allow you to add it manually.

Ok. I've been looking at the Canon website printer model and Mac OS version.
the printer does not show in Dock!
It looks like everyone else has the same problem as well.
The only suggestion was to use a driver that is close to the model you have. When you try to install the printer, can you see a list of drivers.
If so, look driver that is the closest make and model to your printer.
Unfortunately, if that doesn't work, then the only other alternative is to purchase a new printer.
Oh well off to Tesco!
Sorry to hear that.
That's what most people, including me, had to do.
