I was wondering if there is a way to use a M507dn printer with Windows XP. The HP driver download does not offer any drivers for that printer on XP. (for the M506dn XP drivers are still available)...
Is there any way to print from XP? maybe using some kind of "universial" Printer driver ?

Here is a link to the HP UPD 5.7 PCL5. Install the printer manually on a standard TCP/IP port and it should print.

Sorry for my late reply
Are you ABSOLUTELY sure? I did some digging on the HP UPD Drivers and found that V 6.0.0 of the UPD is the last one that would support Windows XP. now i was wondering about the same thing: could an old Version of the UPD (v6.0.0 in my case) print to a new M507dn Printer? After hours of digging I found this link :
for each printer, it lists the first version of the UPD that supports it. for the M507 it says 6.8.0. So according to that list the printer will probably NOT work with any version prior to 6.8.0.
now that V 6.0.0 is the last Version running on XP, printing from XP does not seem to be possible.
If you are ABSOLUTELY sure that it -nevertheless- DOES work, the correct me please

I have not tested it, but keep in mind there is a difference between stating a printer is "supported" meaning the vendor will help you if there is a problem and "will work" I have not tested this particular setup so I cannot guarantee. However the 507 series and 6.8 were released around the same time. As the 507 did not exist when the older UPD drivers were released they would not have been tested and HP is not going to go backwards and test everything. If you already have the printer, I would try it to see if it works. If not, you may want to consider an older refurb or used printer that will support XP for sure.
