    There are no Win 8 specific drivers for any devices yet. This is NOT a released OS. Perhaps when the next beta comes out in June there will be more drivers available, but I suspect not. Plus HP is notorious for NOT supporting their hardware through new OS versions.

    Win 8 CP is a beta OS for testing purposes only. It will be sometime in October before the OS is actually released. As each new beta release comes out it will require a Clean install to install the newer version.

    Hi nthaler, you'd better stay with Windows 7 as Windows 8 CP is a Beta version. It is an unfinished OS.

    This printer gave problems with Windows 7, it's certain to be the same or worse with Windows 8 CP or RP. It was designed to work for Windows OS's as far back as Windows 2000.

    Software & Driver Downloads HP Officejet Pro L7580 All-in-One Printer - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

    I don't look for Windows 8 CP, RP or the final version to support this printer. Unless Windows 8 Pro, when released, has a app such as XP Mode in Windows 7. I cannot say whether or not that will happen, only that the final version will have much better virtualization support.

    Hardware is only supported for so long.

    After years of experience, managing a printer service center and then servicing printers in my own business, I learned one thing which is beyond question,,,,,,, that HP software & drivers really SUCK!

    Many printers, even AIO's, today sell for under $100 in stores all across the country (USA anyway).
    The main difference between them is the quality of their software and availability of their drivers, for different OS's.
    Of the bunch, EPSON stands out above all the rest.

    Witness, that Microsoft has great drivers in their Driver Cache on Win-8, for Epson Printers and AIO's, but not so much for HP. When I installed Win-8/DP and later for CP, the installer picked up both my Epson Workforce 500, AIO printer and my Epson Stylus Photo R280, with CD printing option, and both are working AOK!

    So if you want something that's going to work with Win-8, BUY EPSON!

    Good Luck!

    Did I read you right? You want us to provide you with a printer driver? Is that right?

    That's NOT what we're here for. If you want HP drivers then go to HP. Of course as we've said over and over on different threads, HP is not yet providing drivers for Windows 8. It's not even a real OS yet. Just a BETA TEST version.

    Good Luck!

    I doubt that the printer that's designed to work optimally for XP, well for Windows 2000, is going to have any chance of working with Windows 8 CP, RP or final release.

    Perhaps if a XP Mode type app is included, & that would be with Pro version only, would be this printer's best shot at working, using Windows 8 CP.

    It's yet to remain to see how Vista drivers will run hardware on Windows 8. That bailed many Windows 7 users out, but we don't know how that's going to play out.

    I'd say it's time for a new printer. In addition to TM's list, recent Kodak printers, of which I have the AIO type, runs fine on Windows 8 CP.
