I had the same problem. Support didn't tell me this was a 'known' issue and had me stand on my head reconfiguring the settings. Nothing worked.
Finally they emailed me a workaround which consisted of installing 990c printer to use for duplex printing.
I also think this is a cop out and that they should fix the C7250 XP drivers.
If enough people who bought from Costco returned them, HP might wake up. I understand Costco sells on consignment so everything returned goes straight back to the supplier.
Unfortunately I like everything else about this printer so I might put up with this annoyance.

After searching other posts I found that the problem is a false indication on the pop-up. Apparently this only affects wi-fi connected printers.
This 'solution' was to just ignore the popup message and click the print single sided button and the doc prints duplex anyway.
Now I'm really disgusted that their support doesn't offer this solution. C'mon HP get with it & read up on your own solutions.

The easy way to enable automatic two sided printing on the HP Photoshop c7250 is to right click on the printer icon and choose properties. On the properties box click on "Device Settings". Under the Device Settings dialog box under installable options make sure you install 2 sided printing. The rest is easily chosen under properties after this is installed. I hope it works well for you.
