HP 4800 Series Scanners and Vista

  AlanHo 08:48 30 May 2007

I upgraded to Vista a few months ago but was not able to use the full features of my HP Scanjet 4850.

I was pleased to see a Vista driver appear on the HP support website recently - the scanner now works perfectly.

What's the problem you're having then, AlanHo?

When Vista was launched - HP had not developed a proper Vista driver and the generic one available did not give access to the full features of the scanner - such as OCR conversion and use of the remote buttons on the scanner. Anyone with Vista and a 4800 series HP scanner would be aware of this.

The new driver puts that right and the full features of the scanner can now be used.
