Actually you should not have to pay for drivers, the drivers normally come on a disc with the printer or they can be found at the HP website. Unless it does not say that it is compatible with Vista and you're trying to get it to work anyway.

You shouldn't have to pay for drivers for HP printers. Go to http://www.hp.com click on drivers and support, put in the model number of your printer, click the button (I can't remember what the button says but I think it is OK) then select your operating system you are using on your computer and download the drivers you need. If your operating system isn't listed with your printer, it means that drivers are not made for that printer using that operating system

Good luck!

Cannot install Selphy CP400 onto a Windows 7 (64 bit)machine.


download vista 64bit drivers (cp400x64mux.exe). Extract these using winzip or winrar or 7zip. Rightclick CNYCPINS.EXE, click Properties, click Compatibility tab, and select Vista SP2 mode. Connect printer, rightclick CNYCPINS.EXE and click 'run as administrator'. Printer is now installed, works fine on my Win7 Home Premium 64bit.

You can download the printer drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model printer and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Not printing from computer to photo smart printer.


If the printer has full functionality with C4100 series driver, then keep the current driver.

If some of the functions is not working , then download updated drivers from HP website.

C4180 Verses C4100


just go online to http://www.hp.com enter the model number, and grab the Vista driver there. It should be more up to date, than what you have on CD, or don't.

got backup?
