flat bed scanner

  sconedd 20:38 21 Feb 2010

Can anyone in the forum help please. I have just upgraded to Windowss 7 Ultimate, and use a Epson Perfection 1200 Photo scanner for a few years, which has been an excellent workhorse. I now find that it is not compatible with Windows 7. Can anyone suggest what I do?, is it scrap this one and buy another or does anybody know a way out of this situation?. If not can somebody recommend a scanner similar. I am disabled and with limited funds. Thanks for your help.

You could try using Windows Virtual PC & XP Mode to run it. click here for more info & to check if your hardware (CPU in particular) is capable of running it. G

If you go for the others' suggestions but find there are no Win7-specific drivers, you could try installing its Vista/XP drivers in Compatibility Mode - click here for instructions.

I think this would be a better solution (if it works) than using XP Mode I suggested at first. G

Sorry I have pointed you in the wrong direction -
At this time, there is no Windows 7 driver for your Epson product - BUT I do know that if you try the TWAIN Driver v5.53A in the LIST from my previous post it may work - it does for some people. It is actually for XP. Download it to your DESKTOP and then click on it to INSTALL. Let me know how you get on please.

I did take all you advice about the driver, and i posted a response back to you all, but it did not turn out right. I wanted to thank woodchip, crossbow7 and northumbria61. I eventually went with northumbria61's suggestion and it worked fine. Thank you once again for your advice. sconedd.
