Re: HP Director with windows 7

Hi Bob, I downloaded the HP Solutions software but it does not give me a wireless installation option. I have an old HP 2600 series all-in-one and it all work wirelessly on my old computer with XP. Any help you could give would be appreciated.

Thanks Terry

What exactly is your printer model?  If it is the Photosmart 2610 it does not have wireless capability....  Do you have the printer connected to a router to provide wireless access?  That would be the setup I have here and the Photosmart 2610 works "wirelessly" from my Windows 7 notebook computer.

Re: HP Director with windows 7

Hi Bob, Thanks for your reply. The printer is a 2610 hardwired via ethernet cable to my router. I don't have a problem printing wirelessly, that worked without the new driver/software download. My problem is scanning wirelessly. I have to plug in the USB caple to scan. The new driver/software download does not give me a wireless option when I try to install the full software download.

Thanks Terry

OK, I just downloaded the full featured driver and installed it in Windows 7 x64.  Try the following:  go to Start, All Programs, HP, Photosmart All-in-one 2600 series, Add a device.  When the connection screen comes up seleect "Wired network connection using an Ethernet connection".  This will search the local network and should find your Photosmart 2610.  Select your device from the list and then complete the install.

Re: HP Director with windows 7

The fact that there is no way to scan multiple pages into one document when using an HP psc 2410 all-in-one with Windows 7 fax and scan program is ridiculus. As is the way that buttons on the machine just "don't function" anymore. You have got to be kidding me! There is no reason why HP cannot design a software program that works WITH Windows 7. Obviously HP would rather we take our business elsewhere than to take the time and resources to develop software that works. The market today is saturated with scanners/fax  that work with any OS. Most are within a reasonable price range. I will definitely be shopping for new equipment VERY soon and I can PROMISE that it will NOT be an HP product.

 

HP I am incredibly disappointed!!

Re: HP Director with windows 7

Actually, he could be correct. He changed the tower (cpu) and now the user has Windows 7. Before you challenge what someone wrote, be sure you have the facts together.

Re: HP Director with windows 7

I couldn't have put it better myself. My problem exactly. Windows fax and scan is a joke. I don't WANT 16 different scans to make up a mulit-page document. I'm going to try Irfanview and see if it works for me.
