Printer Problems

How peculiar.

Having had the RC running like a breeze since the day it was first available, I know find that I cannot install my HP printer using the just released retail version, and HP still insist they don't support Windows 7.

Perhaps I'll reinstall the RC for a couple of months!

Yes, but if you go to the HP download site and try to download a W7 driver, despite the green tick, you'll find it's not yet available (Photosmart 2575)

i have the 2575 too, using vista on a recent auto update it said windows compatibility, but as you say there is no hp driver yet. both ms and hp say after install of w7 goto windows update to get the driver.

my w7 not arrived yet so only know what i have just stated.

[have the impression the ms update will be printer only not scanner or copier, but might be wrong]

The driver is no problem, the printer prints OK. It just won't do all the other things it's been doing for the last 5 months, like scanning, photo editing, faxing etc.

Simply says software not compatible with this version of Windows.

Yesterday it was, today it ain't!

Perhaps they will release something after the 22nd?

Don't know.

To scan to/from the PC you need the software, which won't install.

When I installed the RC I got the option "Install using recommended settings?" which worked OK.

Withe the retail version I get the option, but it still doesn't install.

Usual shambles leaving customers deciding it's best to stick with XP

Anyone bet the two monoliths are staring each other out while Microsoft demands a mega fee for giving driver approval?

I see that drivers for Photosmart 2575 dated 21/10/09 have been posted on the HP download site this morning
