Once again Apple has released updates for Snow Leopard drivers for HP and Epson printers as well as scanners. The Epson drivers have been updated to version 2.4 and are listed on Apple’s download page as being 740 MB large, included in the update is an improved compatibility between Mac OS X 10.6 or later and dozens of scanners and printers.
Apple also released updates for Hewlett-Packard, in this case the drivers have been updated to 2.4.1, it is much smaller than the Epson file , it is only 388MB, although this number will vary depending on which hardware you own, when I installed the drivers it was only 52 MB large. As with the Epson file the HP Printer Drivers 2.4.1 also require OS X 10.6.1 or higher to be installed in order to function and provides support for both printers and scanners.
Both updates can be installed through Software Update, or if you prefer then you can download them directly from Apple’s Website for Support Downloads.
