    Hey guys, when I first got my Air I tried to install my USB printer's drivers and had issues. I think the problem was that it wanted the printer to be connected to the Air while at the same time running the instal disk. Because of the fact that the Superdrive doesn't work in a hub this wasn't possible. Now I CAN print but every time I do try and print I get an error message. Im guessing its cause the printer is trying to run its software or something. Heres a screen shot of the message I get

    Im guessing an answer Im going to get is to run the remote disk. I tried this when I first got the computer and the only thing I could get it to do was reinstall the OS. Can someone supply step by step instructions on getting it to work maybe I missed something?

    Wrong.;)

    It's best to go to the HP website and download the software from there.

    This insures you get the latest drivers.

    I cannot believe I didnt think of something so simple before, especially when I used to reformat my Dell yearly. Thank you for making me feel dumb :)

    But seriously thanks for the help, problem solved.
