I am attempting to get a HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 A909a installed on my system. The printer is succesfuly connected via ethernet to our router, my iMac (10.8.2) can easily see the device but when I attempt to connect it wants to download and install drivers from Apple, when I select Download & Install I get a message that says:


Can't install the software for the HP Officejet Pro 8500 A909a because it is not currently available from the Software Update server.


I have attempted over several days to and also downloaded and successfuly installed the January 13, 2013 HP Printer Drivers v.2.13 for OS X however that still does not work. Looking at Apple's Printer and scanner software available for download it appears the device is supported but I'm not getting anywhere.


My system is a 2011 27" iMac, 24GB RAM, Mountain Lion 10.8.2.


Anyone have some ideas?


Thanks in advance,


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
