Honestly, the only option is if the printer manufacturer develops a drivers that works with vista. or You can try install the generic drivers for the scanner see if that will work. Better consult with the manufacturer of the scanner for compatible drivers for vista

How to use the scanner on my HP 2170 Printer?


First make sure you have the full featured software installed if it is available for your all-in-one. For the 2170, download the software from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=90807&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=90805&taskId=135 . Uninstall a generic driver and unplug the USB cable before installing the full software (ie install software before plugging in the data cable). Avoid print servers and USB hubs; if there are any problems try a new cable first. Scanners require bi-directional communication so a bad cable will cause more problems with the scanner than with the printer.

Vista and Win7 both use a driver built into the OS; so just plug in the data cable. (If Windows Update is set to automatically install drivers for new hardware, it will quickly install the files. Otherwise check Windows Update.)

You can get the manuals from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=90805 .

If you have the full featured software, you will need to set up the destinations for the scanner buttons in the HP software. So start that program and scan from the computer first. (The buttons will not work if an HP monitor is not running to "see" the button presses.)

If you are using the OS driver, the buttons will not work. However, Win7 and Vista will acquire scans in several programs: Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner) and Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) among others.

I hope this helps.

Bought new computer cannot find disc to install and run my epson stylus cx3600


Go to epson.com, drivers, and look up your model. They don't list a cx3600. Is it a cx3200?
If so, download the drivers.

The same scan error too.


Hello,

You have to make sure that the scanner/printer driver is installed on the Vista system. Otherwise, it will not be detected. You can obtain the driver from Canon's download page and choose the one for Windows Vista.

This product can be used with Windows Vista.
  • To use it with Windows Vista, you must install the driver software for Windows Vista.
  • The Windows XP drivers for your product cannot be used under Windows Vista.
  • Easy-WebPrint and PhotoRecord do not support Windows Vista.
Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista :
Before upgrading your OS from Windows XP to Windows Vista, delete / uninstall all the Windows XP driver software first; then, upgrade the OS to Windows Vista and install Vista driver software.
If you have already upgraded your computer's OS to Windows Vista :
Delete / uninstall the Windows XP drivers before installing Vista drivers.

I hope it helps!!!

Vista cannot regocnise my rx600


Windows Vista printer and scanner drivers are available for your product. The printer software is available by using the Automatic Software Update service built into Windows Vista. The scanner software is available for download through Epson’s website.

PRINTER DRIVER DOWNLOAD

Please follow these steps to set up your Epson product and automatically download the Windows Vista printer driver for it from Microsoft:

1. Connect the USB cable to your computer and then to your Epson product.

2. When the FOUND NEW HARDWARE window appears, select Locate and Install Driver Software (Recommended).

3. Your Epson product drivers will install automatically. You may need to select this option more than once during installation.

4. Close any open windows on your screen.

5. Try printing.

*NOTE:
-Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.
-As the driver is part of Windows Vista, there is no Status Monitor available for your printer. Some printers may have an INK LEVELS options included as part of the resident driver. Otherwise, the printer does have its own indicators. The LCD will display which cartridge is either low or out of ink.
-If the ink levels do not appear, click GET INK LEVELS to refresh the driver. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer as the Ink Levels does rely on full bidirectional communication.

SCANNER DRIVER DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION

1. Go to the Epson Support website (www.epson.com/support).

2. Select your model, then select Drivers and Downloads.

3. Select and download the TWAIN Driver and EPSON Scan Utility for Windows Vista. Save the file to your desktop and make a note of the file name in order to easily retrieve it.

4. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

If a message appears indicating “The scanner has not passed Windows Logo testing”, click Continue Anyway. Then click Finish.

5. Re-start your computer before testing the scanner software.
