You can use this tool to try and add your printer into Windows 8 until the offical release of Win 8: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Windows-8-Release-Pre
Hope this helps!

Windows 8 RTM has already printer support for the Photosmart 6510 included without your CD.
Step 1: on the Start screen, you know with all the Tiles, click Windows key+ C, to open the side bar;
The side bar opens with Search
Step 2: enter "printer" in the search field (without quotes); you will see that there are 17 hits under Settings
Step 3: click now on Settings, you will see 17 tiles appear on the screen
Step 4: Turn on your printer that you have already conected to your router; since you migrate now from W7
Step 5: Select Advaced printer setup
Note: You may receive a warning from Windows about Network sharing, Turn Network sharing On.
If you want to verifiy: double click the Network icon bottom right on the task bar, the green sidebar opens, right-click network, Then click Turn network sharing On or Off, follow the instructions
Step 6: a window opens that shows your network printer is on 192.168.xx.xx
Step 7: follow the onscreen instructions.
All in all, it is so easy, but difficult to find, that Microsoft may have included it in the W8 setup routine. Or at least some hints. Enjoy printing! -Eric

I downloaded printer per instructions on line following 5 steps. The printer works but the scanner does not.
Printer notification said to make sure "scan to computer" is turned on, but the computer does not even show that it is installed. Please help
