How to install HP F380 printer/scanner onto Vista I've bought a new Compaq Presario desktop with Vista Home Premium, my problem is, I have a 2 year old HP F380 printer / scanner / copier, and I can't install the disk onto Vista as it's only compatible with Windows XP, I can use the printer but can't scan and save to computer, I've been told to download a patch from HP but have no idea what to look for, any help would be great.

This might help.

Thanks for that I have broadband but it looks like it's going to take over an hour to download 163MB, I'll see how it goes.

"The Full Feature Software solution supplies full access to the many features of the All-in-One device and is ***intended for Users who want more than just a basic print and scan driver***." you can potentially order it on a cd.

Have downloaded successfully, everything running like it was on the old PC with Windows XP, printing / scanning etc, I cancelled the download a couple of times as it was going to take to long, over an hour, on the third go it was only going to take 7 minutes, thanks for the link 2295.

the horse has bolted but a download manager like 'flashget' would be useful.
