    Hi all,
    I have recently sold my Windows laptop, and now I am just left with my Mac, but before I sold it I didnt know that my Powerbook couldn't use the printer, does anyone know of any drivers or software for my Mac that could work a HP Officejet v.40, it doesnt matter if I cant use the scanner, fax functions because all I want to is print!!!

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I have yet to find a HP printer that is not Mac compatible. Have you tried the HP website for driver downloads? www.hp.com

    Oh and if for some reason you can't find the exact drivers, it might help to try and install drivers of a similar HP model.

    Good luck!

    Have you even tried to connect the printer? 10.3 has the drivers for most recent HP printers.
