No such option

This problem vexed me for about three days. But, I finally figured it out! The problem lies not on the mac but on the PC (if your printers are connected directly to your PC).

On your PC:
>open control panel>printers and faxes
>right click the printer that you are having problems with
>open sharing make sure to check the "share this printer" box
> on the printer name make sure that "share name" has NO, I repeat NO spaces in the name (I changed the name from "Canon i560s" to "Canoni560s".

On mac:
>open system preferences
>open printer & fax
>delete printer "-" that is giving you problems (i.e Canon i560s)
>add printer "+"
>open "More Printers"
> from top drop down menu select "windows printing"
>double click the computer that is connected to the printer(s)
>select the printer that you changed the name on in windows and add it.

This should solve your problem.
