This problem always seems to pop up when there is a power outage or I am installing an new HP printer.  I believe it is trying to load the driver/software usb disk, which is not formatted for Mac.  Neither un-pugging/plugging the USB nor turning the printer on/off worked.  The solution is to unplug the usb, then turn the printer on and wait for it to fully turn on.  So both the computer and the printer are fully on.  Then plug the USB in.  Presto!

    Nice idea, but it doesn’t work. I’ve tried that multiple times. I’ve tried reinstalling drivers. etc … Nothing will make the printer connect. It connected fine for the last month, no issues. Then yesterday it threw the disk not inserted error and won’t work.
