Hp driver f2492

Some older scanners are not supported by the newer versions of Apple OSX. This can be a real problem for owners of older printer/scanner equipment and windows 8/10 has driver issues with older equipment also.
HP is a great printer or scanner. They make a universal print driver and a universal scan driver which I have installed both in my macs and in my windows machines (I have both OSX and Windows machines at home and at work)
The universal scan drivers and universal print drivers may work on your unit. Also you may have to assign your printer a high static IP address and tell the computer and driver where to find it, as sometimes automatic pairing is not possible.
Example... Your router IP address is and it passes out DHCP addresses from 50 to 100 ( to
You can assign your printers in the house of office static IP address starting at .201 then .202 .203 etc...
Tell the driver you know the IP address and enter and the driver or HP universal driver will find the printer and link up no problem.

    Hi, I have a scanner CanoScan N 640P and MacBook with Mac OS X 10.5.3 operative system. I wonder how to connect those two equipments and where to find the right driver. So, I would need your advice.......

    it is supported by only windows XP
    so it is advisable to use VMWARE FUSION of BOOTCAMP to install WINDOWS XP
    and then connect Scanner to that Virtual Machine.

    I purchased this Iconvert scanner today, I have a Mac & don't seem to be able to get it to install. The disk that was included with it must be only for Windows because it is useless. I have called...

    I only found a couple of iConvert scanners listed from Brookstone. One is a standalone photo/negative scanner that doesn't need a computer, so I assume it isn't your model. The other one claims it will work with Mac OS X 10.4 and up, but only on Macs with Intel processors. According to the manual, the CD contains the required software for the Mac, and it should run automatically. If it's not working with your Mac, you may have a PowerPC machine and you're probably out of luck. If this is what's happening, you should return the scanner for a refund and look for one that specifically lists compatibility with PPC Macs.

    Do I need to install a disc to first use scanner?

    that is often the best way. In some intallations you are asked at some point in the installation to turn unit on so that it can communicate with it . So follow the instructions on the disk.

    Sorry, but the compatibility sites say this is not compatible with Vista or Win 7.

    They word is that Canon has no intentions of writing a win 7 driver for this unit.

    You should probably backstep to Win XP so you can use this scanner.

    These manufacturers are letting Microsoft make the hardware obsolete due to lack of drivers... a conspiracy???,
