I upgraded to Lion this week and now I'm having the same network folder issues. I keep getting network errors. Any suggestions? It was working swell until I installed Lion!

Please provide a solution HP Support. After upgrading to Lion I also am not able to scan to network folder.
I have verified that I can connect to the SMB Shares from Windows. Only the printer is having a problem now.

This is disgraceful for a company the size of HP and known for their printers. OS X Lion has been out since July 20, 2011. Hardware vendors have early access to the software to make sure their software/hardware supports such upgrades. Every other hardware vendor that had an issue with Lion and network folders which I use had updated their drivers within months of the release with exception of HP.
I purchased my HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus because my last OfficeJet Pro was not supported by Snow Leopard and I was told to upgrade. I did and once again HP has stopped supporting the "Scan to Network Folder" option with Lion.
This is the last HP printer that I will purchase and you'll be sure I don't recommend and HP printer to anyone else.

on your post you say "
You should use the following path template:
//IP-ADRESS/Sahred-Folder-Name" (end Quote)
You say the slashes should be \\, and not / /.
Which is correct?

this problem is a problem of Apple and HP together. You can find similar problems and partial solutions in other
discussions, also at apple's site.
The problem is caused by a new protocol version of SMB used for reaching a network folder.
Apple has updated that protocol version with LION.
The HP drivers were not updated yet to support this.
One possibility to make MAC OS X Lion compatible was to install SMBUp.
But this work around seemed to work for MAC OS X 10.7.3,
but doe no longer work for 10.7.4!
So please @HP, the update of the protocol has good and well understood security reasons,
please update the drivers!!!

HP Does not support Lion anymore for Network Folder. They refuse to update the drivers and would prefer you buy a new printer. You will not be able to get this to work.
