HP scanjet 5470c with Vista?

  dilbar 18:32 09 Jul 2007

If anyone has found a way of using the HP scanjet 5470C with my HP laptop running Vista please let me know. HP are not supporting the scanner with Vista but I particularly want to use it as it scans slides and negatives.

Have had a pretty thorough Google - all sites report No Vista driver for your scanner, and advise changing scanner.

Echoing TT
We seem to have the w95/98 scanner to XP problem all over.
Scanners are made with our firmware processors that
controls the tracking and scanning the CCD and all that- in the 95/8 era devices they were operated by a DOS command set from the computer.
NTFS commands from XP did not work.
Some models of scanners were dual- but not many.
It seems as if we have this all over again, and not only scanners this time.

Well, I had a feeling that the answer would be to buy a new scanner - Technotiger's link looks worth keeping an eye on. I have used the scanjet with ME and XP so i should be grateful for that.
