can u help me with this..
Mate, I gave up completely for the night when I got mine and had similar issues. Some help though.....
First, make sure the USB Port is a 'powered' port (i.e. one that's in your PC or Laptop and not from a plug in HUB). That's needed. Secondly, the install software is ****, so I ended up installing the drivers by downloading them and the install tool from the following website (you can't do it form the CD):
Just select the Printer Only driver. Once done, this doesn't present the device to your PC as a printer, so you have to go into the Control-Panel / Printers and Faxes / Add Printer and add it manually. you'll be asked to select the PORT for the device, and you need to select USB Virtual Printer Port. Then it will just go through whatever it goes through and install it. When you next Reboot, it will then install all of the other stuff to link it to the generic HP software it loaded off the CD. Seems to do that all by itself. Good Luck.
