My HP Photosmart 6520 will not download to my MAC OS X version 10.5.8.

I need help.  Is the HP Photosmart 6520 even compatible with my MAC OS X version 10.5.8?  I can print from  my iPhone.  But cannot download the new printer on this MAC.

Thank you for the solution.  I learned that my computer does not have software that will allow my printer to connect.  My MAC is only four (4) years old.

Re: My HP Photosmart 6520 will not download to my MAC OS X version 10.5.8.

The link above does not list Mac OS X 10.5.8, the lowest is 10.6. The problem with PowerPC based Macs is that 10.5.8 is the latest version that will work on a PowerPC. But we had success with the built in drivers! Haven't tried scanning, but scan to email should be fine. Printing now works.... 

My daughter has an HP Photosmart 6520 and a PowerPC based Mac G5 desktop running OS X 10.5.8. She was using the printer with a windows laptop with no problems. Then she wanted to use it on the Mac, and we saw from posts that it was not supported. However, she simply went to File > Print, then Add printer from the printer list, and the Mac found the printer using Bonjour!! The driver was not listed for the 6520, but we had good success with the HP Photosmart 8500 Series driver build into Mac OS X 10.5.8. We did not need to install anything from HP. Result!
