I am unable to use my printer. When I plug it in with the USB to my Mac, it states, "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." I am a Mac User and I have tried multiple options. It is not working. I do not own a PC.

Hi,

HP Smart Install cannot be disabled from a Mac, only from a Windows PC.

 

You will need to temporarly plug the printer to a Windows PC (e.g. get a laptop from a friend or family), then download and run the HP Smart Install Control Utility to disable HP Smart Install for the printer:

Once the feature is disabled reconnect the printer to your Mac.

 

Regards,

Shlomi
