There is no driver for this scanner under W7 but I succeededto make it work this way : Make sure driver XP ( yes , XP ) is correctly installed . Then , go to http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html and install FreeKapture , it's free . Load FreeKapture , clic on Scan and select WIA Hewlett-Packard . Scanner works fine in this mode . If you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang . In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works . Regards ,

Hi , Vista or W7 , it's the same problem : there are no more drivers for Scanjet 4470c . I find a way though , to make the mine work in WIA mode under W7 32-Bit Ultimate . Should work with Vista too . Make first sure driver XP ( yes , XP ) is correctly installed . Now , download and install Freekapture ( it's free ) from :http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html Load Freekapture , clic on Scan and select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Scanner works fine in this mode but if you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will freeze . In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works . As for the buttons , only power button will respond . Regards .
The only ways to get scanner 4470c run under W7 are these 3 options : 1° solution one : make sure driver XP ( yes XP ) is correctly installed . Download and install FreeKapture from http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10711598.html . Load FreeKapture , clic on Scan and select WIA-Hewlertt-Packard . Scanner will work fine in this mode but if you choose PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang . In any case , no slides or negative scans possible but the rest works . 2° solution two : if you have XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of XP on your HDD ( http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ ) 3° solution three : if you still have XP install disc , partition your HDD and install XP on the new one (http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html ). Don't wait for HP to produce compatible drivers for this unit , it's useless .Regards . Fanaudi .
You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.
