    Unfortunatly HP has decided not to support, Win 2000, Win Me, Win XP, or Mac with driver packages for your model.

    Unless someone has a hack or other sets of drivers that work you may be out of luck for support.

    Here is HP's support page. Look about 1/3 of the way down under scanners.

    Sorry

    Seems HP strikes again with mis-information on their product support site. Hopefully Dvk's links work for you. Please let us know if they do since there is defintely a conflict of statements here.

    If you search via drivers download you get not available but if you go via biz centre and forums you find that 5101a use same drivers as 5100a. took a bit of searching but HP links are always problematic. Never take the first HP search page use a different way into it

    To Davey7549 and dvk01

    Thank you both for your quick response,I will download the new driver for it,but as it is rather large (70.1 MB) it will take some time,but I will let you know if it works.
