Your apparently older Model needs to use Apple's "Print & Scan" which is found in Applications>System Prefernces>Print & Scan. There you will follow the following instructions from the HP Support site to Scan, for instance:
- Place the item that you want to scan on the scanner glass, or load it into the automatic document feeder (ADF) if your printer has one.
- Click the Apple menu ( ), and then click System Preferences .
- Click Print & Scan ( ).
- Click your printer in the left pane.
- Click Scan , and then click Open Scanner .
- Click Show Details . The details of the scan display, including options to change scan settings.
- Change any scan settings as necessary, and then click Scan .
Hope this helps
That's a great list John and my M1522nf appears on that list. Thanks for sharing.
However, I've downloaded the multiple Apple issued updates through 'Software Update' that have been issued since upgrading to Mountain Lion and my scanner's document feeder is still unsupported.
This has completely trashed my workflow and my multi function unit is only a bit over 2 years old.
Scanning one page at a time is a complete nightmare.
I hope a fix is issued really soon.
The link above may provide printng or faxing functionality, however any scanning functionality is not provided by this solution, which means you more likely use any older software which not intended for Mountain Lion.. that may cause this kind of unexpected behavior.
As you may find listed below, currently scanning is not supported on the OS but should become available later this year:
In the meantime you may try the 3rd party Vuescan software which seems to support your scanner and compatible with the OS:
