Nohcuaf,

 

   The C309g does have a Windows update driver in Windows 8.  The functions the printer will have using the driver will depend on how you have it installed on the PC.  This is the functions you should see.

 

Network - Basic print functionality

USB - Basic print funcionality and scan abiltiy

 

If you need help installing this let me know, what I would need to know is how you plan on installing this, network or usb.

Nohcauf,

 

    If you have Windows update turned on and you connect the usb cable from the printer to your PC and the PC is connected to the internet it will download and install the driver.

dft8,

 

   Windows 8 has a Windows update driver for your printer(see attached) so if you have Windows 8 setup to update and the pc is connected to the internet it will install the driver, How are you trying to install it?  is it usb or network?

Printer installation under Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Bonjour,

J'ai éxécuté les recommandations que vous m'avez indiquées :

Imprimante connectée en USB

Windows update automatique

Connexion Internet ON

 

J'ai fait les essais avec Logiciel HP installé et logiciel HP désinstallé.

 

Dans tous les cas Windows Update me dit : pas de mise à jour disponible.

 

QUE DOIS-JE FAIRE ?

 

Merci

 

Nohcuaf

You can use the add a device in printers and devices.  If you open up printers and devices in the upper left you will see an add a devices and printers button.  Click on it and it will search for any devices or printers on your network, if the printer is connect usb it should also see it.  When it finds it select the printer and select next and it should install the in-OS driver for the printer.

The thing is that the printer is not is not setup at all, I uninstall all the drivers trying to reinstall new ones, I tried to do what you told me, and in fact it seems to install a driver, but it does not work. Maybe is because there are no drivers at all for the printer and I have no drivers to update? I would appreciate any help, thank you.
