Scanning with HP PSC1510 using a Mac OS 10.9

I have used an (HP) PC for years, the last few using an HP PSC1510 printer. I have recently bought an iMac, OS 10.9, and am having difficulty getting the functionality from the printer that I used to.

I am able to print, pure and simple, but the HP Solution Center and HP Photosmart Premier are nowhere to be seen.



I have attempted to download the latest drivers from the HP website but have (I think) failed to install them properly (at all?). When I try to open HPPrinterDriver2.16.1.dmg.part I get the message: "There is no application set to open the document"

and when I try to open HPPrinterDriver2.16.1.dmg (which shows in the Finder as having zero bytes) I get the message: "Image not recognized " (not surprising if it has zero bytes!)



Somewhere on the HP Support site I found something about the Hewlett Packard folder somewhere in Applications (?). I have searched hard and cannot find that either.



I used to get on so well with the Solution Center and Photosmart Premier! Is there anyway I can get them back, or failing that, take proper control of the scanning and printing functions another way?

@ sue.words,

Have a look here to download the right driver for the printer.
Scroll to Links to drivers and click on HP Software and Drivers page.

@iEscape
Thank you SO much for taking the trouble to help me.
I know you solution works because HP Support Forum responded with the same advice. (I'm sorry, I was so desperate I posted a plea for help there as well as on this forum.)
I really do appreciate your kindness.
