    When I upgraded to Tiger, I lost the ability to scan to my iMac G4 from the D135 because the driver didn't support 10.4. That didn't bother me much, since I don't use the scanner often at all.
    Today, I went to print some images, and the print driver seems to have vanished entirely from my Mac. I went to HP's site and discovered there was a new driver for the D135 that supported Tiger. Woo-hoo, right? wrong.

    Well, I've tried Safari, Firefox, and Explorer, but I cannot seem to dl the driver from HP directly or via the link for D_731_EN.dmg on versiontracker. So now, I have an AIO that works fine as a color copier, and that's about it.

    Ideas? (yes, I emailed a query to HP). I tried installing the driver from the CD that came with the printer, but it warns that my OS is not suported, and I cannot get the set up to complete.

    There's always opera and camimo to try downloading it with, aswell as p2p networks if nothing else.
