Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a eMAC and am having trouble finding software and driver downloads for OSX. Help??? Many thanks
Have just spoken to Lexmark . . . the X1270 is restricted to only work with Windows so there are no Mac drivers.

The term "Drivers" is meaningless without
associating it with an Operating System and a specific item of Hardware.
There is no such thing as a "Driver".
There are only XP VGA LAN Drivers, Vista VGA Drivers or Windows7
Wireless Audio Drivers, Mac OSX Tiger WLAN Drivers. Mac OSX Leopard Epson Sx100
Printer Drivers, Mac OSX Lion Webcam Drivers, Linux Red Hat Midi Controller
Drivers, Linux Ubuntu Media Player Drivers, etc.
Although drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Motherboard's Devices. The BIOS and the Operating System do. What the Driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Device to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with the Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them.
So when one mentions Drivers, one must also
mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be
possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of
'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Device
will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.
This M5305 was designed only for Windows 2000/XP Home
M5105: only for Windows 2000 / XP HE (32 Bit) / XP Pro (32 Bit)
m5309: only for Windows XP HE (32 Bit) / XP Pro (32 Bit).
M3510: only for Windows 2000 / XP HE (32 Bit) / XP Pro (32 Bit)
M5312: only for Windows 2000/XP HE (32 Bit)/XP Pro (32 Bit)
The drivers for all devices on all these laptops for only
these Operating Systems listed here are freely available and can be downloaded from
the eMachines Official Support Site for Drivers and Downloads.
If you are looking for Windows XP (64 Bit), Windows Vista or Windows 7 Drivers for these Laptops, you are wasting your time.
If your Operating System is among Windows 2000/ Windows
Home Edition (32 Bit) and XP (32 Bit), then the Drivers for it can be easily
downloaded from here:
