That reads like what they say about the "out of the box" drivers
already in VISTA but if you go to this webpage for the PSC1610 there is
a fully featured software set:
This download includes the HP Full Feature Software and Drivers.
The Full Feature Software solution supplies full access to the many
features of the All-in-One device and is intended for Users who want
more than just a basic print and scan driver.
You can also get there by going to www.hp.com
and clicking on
╗ Software & Driver Downloads
then typing PSC 1610 in the search box and clicking on the ╗
This is the file that Cari gives you a link to in his latest message
and you can use that link.
Print out the instructions and I recommend that you do not use,
earlier, the detect function. Use the black Download Only rather than
the Install Now.
After you have downloaded the large file -- you have a fast connection
I hope -- do the following:
Unplug the PSC 1610 USB cable from the PC end
Got to Control Panel / Printers and delete any icon there for your PSC
Go to Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall and uninstall and HP
software for the PSC 1610 that you may see.
Reboot the computer.
Then locate where you downloaded the HP software to and right mouse
click on it to start the installation.
Do not connect the printer and its cable to the PC until the
installation procedure tells you to or you get to [Finish] and then
follow instructions including probably to Restart after it has
completed the installation.
I hope that works for you -- shout if you have a question.
