    CANON IPF8300 AND MAVERICKS

    I got the new mac pro with mavericks (10.9.1). I cannot install the
    Canon ipf8300 drivers. Canon says it is problem with the mac. Apple
    reloaded the operating system, but the problem persists. Here is the
    problem. Canon states I needed to install the OS 8 drivers and then
    install a driver update for the mavericks (10.9). The OS 8 install leaves
    files in the proper place. But, when I try to run the update driver program
    it states that it is the "wrong operating system".

    I am being bounced between Canon (who has become curt in there response)
    and Apple (who are polite, did remotely re-install Mavericks, but otherwise
    say it is a Canon problem).

    HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD PROBLEMS WITH MAVERICKS AND CANON DRIVERS?

    Incidentally, I initially was able to print a 12x18 image, but when I then
    tried to print a 20x30 inch I started getting the following error and now
    cannot print anything:

    garodclfilter error 3000

    I was printing from within Photoshop using file->print and then print settings
    tab to set paper, etc. When I hit "print" I find the error.

    Thanks. To contact me directly, please email: [email protected]

    I appreciate your help!!

    I ran an osx update a few months before mavericks came out and it disabled printing to my Canon IPF6300. I could not roll back so had to print off a macbook with older osx on it. When i updated to mavericks i downloaded the ipf mavericks driver updater from the canon website and it worked a charm. I am now worried about installing any updated to OSX. Canons support for MAC users is dreadful.
    I presume you have done the normal driver reinstallation and refreshed the printers in OSX?
