Hi @Magichoom ,

 

I see by your post Windows is recognizing the printer as a CD drive. I will certainly do my best to help you.

Follow these steps to disable the Smart Install for the printer. Select printer not PC.

 

Press the Windows key and the X key together. and select File Explorer, right click the CD for the

printer and left click open in new window, go to util/siutility.exe/HP smart install utility.
Shows printer or PC - select printer.
Then click disable.

 

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

 

Have a great day!
Thank You.

"select File Explorer, right click the CD for the

printer and left click open in new window".

Cannot proceed.  Says "H:\ is not accessible.  Access is denied."  Also tried downloading the HP Color LaserJet Pro M177fw Install Software from the HP support pages.  At 100% is errors and says it took too long.

What do I do next?

I have tried these steps but it will not permit me to remove the driver as it indictes it is already in use, even though I have remvoed the device. Cannot seem to remove the CD drive at all.
