If you've tried downloading drivers or software from HP's support site, you'd soon realise that most if not all of their links to the FTP are broken.
It's shameful that such a big company hasn't fixed up their support section after so long.
Luckily, there's an easy fix for us.
Copy the URL to clipboard and modify it to HTTP.
eg. If the link is ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp48501-49000/sp48801.exe, then just change the "ftp://" bit at the front to "http://" and it'll work.
