I downloaded the most recent version of the installation software for my HP Photosmart D110 (hoping in vain that it would allow me to adjust jpeg compression). After prompting me to connect my printer to the network using the Wireless Printing Wizard, I was asked for the IP address showing on my printer. I did so and pressed Next, at which point I was told that my printer could not be found. But my printer was connected and working! This was confirmed by the HP Solution Center, the Wireless Network Test Report my printer printed, and reality! Unfortunately I spent lots of time looking for a nonexistent problem. **bleep**? Can someone explain why this might happen?
I guess so. I tried using the HP scanning software for the first time last night (I'd used the basic Window Scan software previously with the HP driver), and it's so bad and slow that your answer is more than plausible. It's like using a computer in the late '80s. Do you know if there's any way to use third-party software with an HP printer? The problem with Windows is that it doesn't allow many adjustments. In particular, I'd like to adjust the level of jpeg compression, but using the HP software is just too slow, ugly, and painful.
