Printer drivers

alinz, Jun 20, 9:08pm
Hi - an odd question but maybe you can help - i need to find the driver for the scan-to-computer function of my HP 2410 photosmart - all-in-one - compatible with Window 7 .

It was some time - year or two before the printer driver was available and now that I have that up and running - I'd like to be able to use the scan to printer thing too.

Obviously, i've been on the HP download site but as yet haven't found one.

Anyone got one!
How! Where!
Any suggestions!

Thanks in advance

It might not be shown separately on the hp download site - just re-install the full package.the software should sort out whats needed and what isn't

looks like allas is on the case - this situation looks like an older device that has only limited support in windows 7

this link here seems to describe all the available functionality

Ah great.
When I did this last time - it did everything but the scan to print thing.\
Maybe it's been more recent than my last attempt - 2 weeks ago.\
I'll try again.

Thanks

Argh!
the website takes you so far - but not far enough to download the drivers.

Frustrating. Shame on HP

Under step two - there are 2 files, one for just driver and the other for full software including driver. Also there are a few updates under the other link.

Your post mentions 2410, but this one I found says F2410. Not sure if there is a difference or not.

What tells you the driver is not installed! Or is it that you just can't find the software/function to actually scan anything!

Have you tried this off the link I gave you!
Method one: Scan with Windows Fax and Scan
Click the Windows ( ) icon.
Click All Programs .
Click Windows Fax and Scan .
Click New Scan , and then click Scan .

EDIT: What messages/errors do you get!

No - it seems it just isn't available!

Shame on HP!
This is the message I got from their website again.

Step two: Select a download
Show all | Hide all
Driver - Product Installation Software (1)

Install the Driver Using Windows Update with a USB Connection (Downloadable Driver Not Available) ?

lol I just realised how old this printer is. Shame on nobody, its too old to bother writing drivers for.
