    So, I desperately need the os x printer drivers to the HP c4280. I searched HP's site and also the alternative printer site. So, if anyone can post a link to them, that would be great

    Driver

    I found the driver for your printer:

    https://sales.sitel.be/swdcd/Welcome.asp

    But I think it ridiculous that they expect you to pay for the driver, as it should be included in the package. You may also try e-mailing them or phoning them.

    I tried helping, cause I'm looking to buy a similar HP printer (wireless one) & would like if you eventually get sorted, let me know what you think (print quality etc...)

    Cheers

    It's virtually impossible to miss the driver CD with Windows and OS X drivers on HP's website, the OP probably wanted them for free or without the hassle of ordering the disc.

    HP most likely made a crappy license deal with the developer of the OS X drivers, with limited redist rights. On the other hand, there is no way the driver CD isn't (supposed to be) included with the printer. If the disc is missing for a brand new printer, something is wrong. In any case, I agree with the suggestion to call/e-mail HP.

    To charge for a physical replacement disc is perfectly reasonable though, but the drivers really should be downloadable for free in addition. Disappointing move by HP.

    yea, I found it to order, the problem was that I needed it that night. Therefore, ordering if would have been a complete waste
