Epson 1250 scanner

  naggis 15:44 19 Oct 2006

I have just reinstalled windows xp sp2.
The installation cd for this scanner has been lost!!
The epson site has the latest driver, which installed ok.
But there is no software to run the scanner - so it is as much use as a choco fireguard.
Can anyone point me in the direction of suitable software or a copy of the orig cd?
Thanks in advance

The original software will be on the Epson site, seperate from the driver.

If the driver is Twain compliant (virtuall all are) you can scan from within applications, using the application's interface with the driver. So in Word, for example, click insert/picture/from scanner.

recap - the software seems to be for another scanner unfortunately. I could not find any of the associated software

What seems to be needed is the Smart Panel.
This is produced by another software company.
They offer an upgrade but not the original app.
Where to get this original software is the problem

You should be able to scan without the Smart Panel using XP's own wizard or from another application.

Try contacting Epson and see what they say or NewSoft who produce Smart Panel.
