Re: Hp Photosmart 6510 scanner wont let me scan to computer

I can scan to my (W7) computer, *IF* I'm logged in as the administrator user that was used to install the HP 6510 software. Apparently, it doesn't work for the other user accounts on the machine. Does anyone have a fix for this?

Re: Hp Photosmart 6510 scanner wont let me scan to computer

I'm trying to download the software for the drivers and scanner for my HP Photosmart 6510 because I cannot find the CDs that came with the printer. I can get to the page, but when I click on the link which appears to be live,  nothing downloads. What are my options?

Did you ever find an answer to this?  The same thing is happening to me.

If you have a printer icon on your desktop, double-click on it and look for something in there called "Manage Scan to Computer." 

 

If you do not have the printer icon - what is everyone's operating system on their computer (Windows 7, XP, Mac OS, etc)?
