Well ... in fact they are available on HP's website, though not very easy to find, so here is the exact address to connect to :

If you have the windows 95 installation CD, go into the
\drivers\printr\hp5xx directory.  You will find the diver there for all the HP 5xx series color printers.

Good Luck

Greetings to you all !

JBURGHARDT : Of course, your proposed answer, was the first step i took in order to install the 520. Although there was quite a list of 5xx drivers; the 520 drivers were absent in my version of W95. Strange is'nt it ?

JRHELGESON : The only subs i find in the \drivers\printer dir. are \DEC, \Lexmark, \Lpt, \Tektronx. No \HP dir. in site :)

MAGIGRAF : Okay, thanks for your help anyway...

Thanks,
TeRReF.

PS. Maybe  i'll find them in one of drivers.cab's. I'll check it out...

There are a few sites out there like,
http://www.wsources.com
http://www.download.com
http://www.32bit.com
http://www.tucows.com
http://www.hotfiles.com
http://www.zdnet.com

Try out the first 2 sites, I've found most of my driver updates to my hardware there.

If you do not have that directory on your cd, you must have an older version of win95.
Win95a, Win95b both have the HP Drivers.  There should be an HTML file in the \drivers directory that will tell you what drivers are inside that directory.
