mac book connect to printer


I have a mac book version MAC OS Big Sur 11.0.1.  I want to connect to my old printer Cannon MX410 printer.  It says there are no drivers for that mac version.  On my mac it does not even come up with any cannon printers.  Is there a way around this so I can get it hooked up?  This Big Sur was my latest update.  In a bind-can anyone help?

Thank you




No official drivers for the MX410 under Catalina or Big Sur.


You can try adding it as an IP printer and see what happens.  


Lots of folks having problems with this right now.  Similar to when Catalina was released (64bit only) support..  


Checking and verifying support for peripherals before upgrading might have been wise.  Sorry this isn't one we can solve for you.

Hello, I am having the same problem: connecting a PIXMA MX410 to the newest MacBook Pro with the M1 chip. I assume it's OK if I contact customer support as well?
