I believe the drivers for your printer/scanner have to support this. For
example, I have an HP 6310 which is listed in Scanners and Cameras but if I
click "Scan Profiles," I receive a message "No scanner was detected..." I
can, however, use the interface provided by the Vista compatible HP software
that I downloaded from HP.
In other words, with the right software, I can scan and handle all necessary
functions, I just can't use the Scanners and Cameras wizard.
According to the HP site with regard to your All-In-One at the download
drivers section under Vista, the driver that ships with Vista is the only
one currently available. The do have instructions for scanning from the
photo gallery. Assuming you followed those instructions, it might that the
supplied drivers don't support the function you are trying to use. There is
a notation and disclaimer at the HP site about this: http://tinyurl.com/2qa7e9
Note, while these drivers shipped with Vista, they were provided by HP and
it would be HP that would have to provide updates if there are going to be
any though the above page seems to imply that isn't going to happen.
