I have the same problem with the photosmart a826. We have only used it 3 times and 2 of the 3 times it has made the memory card unreadable and created the .vfs file. We have lost hundreds of pictures because of this. Very upset to lose that many memories.

See earlier post this thread. Ignore the VFS file and look for a folder called 'DCIM'. Your scan(s) should be inside that folder. I'm one of those having to use a memory stick plugged into the USB port on the C7280 because my C7280 will no longer scan to my Win 7/64-bit PC.
(Really strange. Can scan from 2 laptops on my home network - not Win 7 - and from my PC IF I use the memory stick but not from the directly connected PC. No problems printing though.) Years have gone by and HP has yet to fix this... I guess they figure I'll go buy a new Win7-compatible HP printer. (Yeah - like new HP HW is ANYWHERE in MY future!)

I have 2 PC with Win7 and I can scan directly into them, however not from the printer, but from the PC. I open a browser (IE or firefox or other) window with the IP address of the printer and it gives me a status and other info. From there I chose webscan and it will scan into my pc. Just make sure you have what you want scanned in the printer before scanning.
