    My grandma is moving and she had this scanner that she didn't want anymore. It is a HP ScanJet 4300c. All I have for it is the power and USB cable. What do I have to do on my mac to be able to use it?

    Go to HP's website and download their HP Device Manager. Or, if you'd rather, buy a copy of VueScan.

    Also, plug it in. :p

    how to set up my scanner?!!..

    hi ive had no problems connecting my all in one printer to a pc, but now ive got a macbook pro and ive downloaded the driver and scan application but still i am not able to scan anything. everytime i click scan it opens up a troubleshooter. i can easily print but just cant use the scan function!

    my all in one printer is the epson stylus office BX310FN with built in scanner.

    is there anyone who has the same printer or knows how to connect this particular printer/scanner to mac os x.

    Plug it in an open ImageCapture in your apps folder. It should recognise it unless its ancient.

    I am trying to install my HP printer/scanner and it will print but not scan. I tried plugging in with USB but still says no device detected. It is a HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m. Any suggestions out there?
