Just to register interest in getting driver support for HP Officejet 5510 all-in-one for Mac OS X 10.6 (to add to the growing list by the look of things!)
I have an HP Officejet 5510 that is (about 5 years old) worked perfectly on Leopard
Surprised having just upgraded to discover that it is not supported (should have checked the forums or is that fora)
Do we have a definitive answer as to whether this printer will be supported ?
Not shown as a supported printer currently
Apple suggest checking with HP
Don't really want to buy an a new printer (especially as I have plenty of spare print cartridges - which probably cost more than the printer!)
Solved! Go to Solution.

the HP Officejet 5510 will be supported with Snow Leopard. Unfortunately, the new drivers did not make it onto the 10.6 DVD but will be provided in the near future from Apple Software Updates.
The document found at HP Printing Products - HP peripherals with print drivers included in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard details the models supported in 10.6.
I'll post an update asap when I have more schedule info, thanks for your patience,

Biggles solution, below, does not work for me as I cannot scan which is important for me. Downloading his suggestion wiped out my 5510 series icon completely and left only a Canon icon which is for a printer I use in another location (I have yet to find out whether that will print). So I could not even print. I then downloaded another driver and I can now print and copy but still not scan. I need optical character recognition and am lost. How can we pressurise HP and Mac to come up with a solution?
Biggles did not say specifically whether the scanning option worked after his download.
All advice welcome.
