Open the HP Driver folder created in step 1, click Edit , and then click Paste to copy the files to the HP Driver folder on the hard drive.
If while copying, a Cannot copy from source disk or drive or Cannot copy specified file error message is displayed, then check the functionality of the CD drive by using a different CD.
If other CDs work correctly, it means there is an error reading the HP software CD.
If the files cannot be copied from the CD, the CD may be defective. In this case, you can either download a software or order a CD at support and drivers page of hp.com.
