I am unable to scan documents from my HP Officejet 6210 into my MacPro via USB direct connection.
I've got an HP Officejet 6210 connected to my Airport Extreme, which in turn is connected to my MacPro running OS 10.4.11.
I can print from the MacPro (OS 10.4.11) that's connected to the Airport Extreme with the Officejet connected to the Airport Extreme's USB port.
WHAT DOES *NOT* WORK:
- I have no success scanning from the Officejet when the MacPro connected to the Airport Extreme which in turn is connected to the Officejet at the end of the chain.
- I have no success scanning from the Officejet whenthe MacPro is connected directly to the Officejet via USB cable
When I attempt to scan a doc from the Officejet when it is directly connected via USB to the MacPro -- or -- when the Officejet is connected
to the Airport Extreme and then to the MacPro -- and press the "Scan To" button on the Officejet, the following alert reads:
"No Scan Options. You need to install or run device software for feature."
I have just learned in a post from the very helpful PrintDoc (here) that:
"Airport USB connections do not support scanning".
