Re: HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m - scan error

Hi @marty8184,


Welcome to the HP Support forums.


I understand that you have upgraded your PC to Windows 10, but now you are not able to scan with the HP Photosmart Premium All-in-One Printer because a 'Scan Cannot be Performed Because Another Program or Computer is Using the Networked Device' error not letting the scan be completed. I would like to help you with that.


Here is a document that you can use to resolve this issue - 'Scan Cannot be Performed Because Another Program or Computer is Using the Networked Device' Message....
