Need driver or workaround to install printer on Windows 8 Pro.
I'm also running Windows 8 Pro and I connected the 309a via USB and Windows installed its drivers. So both printing and scanning are working for me .
You should be able to do the same. Check whether device is hidden in device manager is not installing properly via USB. If it is, uninstall it, unplug the cable, plug it again, and it should install the default Windows 8 drivers.
1. Driver installed is "HP Photosmart C309a series Class Driver" instead of the HP's "HP Photosmart C309a series" driver.
2. HP Solution Centre does not see the printer - is it because of the different driver?
3. Cannot install the printer, as a network printer. HP's install software fails I believe after finding the printer OK and starting to install its own driver.
It would be really nice to get this resolved.
HP? Anyone listening?
