Epson 1250 photo scanner

Since loading SP3 two weeks ago, scanner not working. Have reloaded driver, still get error message 'Twain 5 application cannot be found'. But, I re-installed all the driver software, seems odd. Any advice please?

Did you physically disconnect the printer before reinstalling the software?

Shjt down the computer
Re boot Computer
Make sure there are no other programs running
Make sure you are offline#
Finallly make sure Anti Virus protection and any other 'blocking' software is disabled.

Now re install all Epson software
That should do it.

eedcam, I disconnected the scanner from PC, should I disconnect printer also? I am trying to use the original driver disc from 2002, but downloading from website seems to make no difference. Also had error message when using the driver disc to un-install. I shall try again later.

As Jack says also epson usually require you to install software the connect scanner or printer
found this twain driver though may not be your model .DOnt know about uninstalling the printer if it works ok

eedcam and jack, thankyou for advice. Think I have solved it, the Epson scanner needs Spyware Terminator disabled for it to operate. bit odd, it used to work OK before SP3! Also the copy function needs to go to the HP printer without 'series' in the printer name, ie, the Windows driver I think, reather than HP driver. I dont know what the effect of this is, HP website not clear about it.
