What Operating system are you using?
Windows XP: Go to Add Remove Programs under Control Panel
Windows Vusta : Go to Programs and Features under Control Panel
Check if you have OCR Software listed in there
If there is, uninstall it and run the installation cd for the printer and click on Install more software or just do the recommended / easy installation
If there's no OCR software, run the installation from the cd to install it
The end point is, just make sure that the OCR software is either refreshed or reinstalled
Hope that helps.

@ Tnala: That's great to hear. I'm glad your issue is resolved.
This solution is applicable to all HP printers that uses HP Solution Center
To install the OCR Software:
1. Place the printer's installation cd in your computer
2. It will pop up the installation screen. you will have the option to click on Install More Software
3. You should have an option to click on OCR Software
4. Just follow through the steps after clicking on the button.
Use HP Solution Center to scan to pdf.
Hope that helped.

I have a LaserJet M1522nf AIO. The software that came with the printer doesn't include H-P Solutions. It has a pretty lame utility called HP Toolbox FX, whic, as far as I can see, does nothing useful. In order to scan to PDF, I have to scan to e-mail or scan to a tif or jpg file and try to convert it with a 3rd party program.
I had an old H-P 4450 standalone sheet fed scanner that worked perfectly until I converted to Windows 7. H-P didn't make a Win 7 driver, so I had to get a new scanner. Most of the things I scan need to go to a pdf file and I just can't find a workable solution.

i'm tryng to use 'hp-psc-1210' for scanning document but its not giving me option for scanning as pdf format.
i tried updating driver using device manager, bounced my machine but still only 4 options - bmp, jpg, tif, png only.
