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

I bought the Canon Canoscan N1240u flatbed scanner. I downloaded the drivers and plugged in the cord that came with it but it doesn't do anything.


Just to be sure, did you install the driver in addition to downloading it? Full software or basic driver. The software must be installed before connecting the data cable. What OS are you using? (if you have Vista 64-bit, it is not compatible) If you didn't install the software, uninstall the OS driver and disconnect the data cable before attempting to install the Canon software. Otherwise see the notes for scanning with other software.

First are you trying to use the scanner buttons? These will only work if the full software is installed. For the buttons to work, you have to set up the scanner button destinations in the Canon software first. Also a monitoring program must be running for the button presses to work.

So try scanning from the computer first. If you still get an error, try a new data cable. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection. Make sure your USB ports work with a known working device. You can also check if the ports are disabled for security (in the Device Manager for Windows) or power savings (an advanced setting from the Screen Saver).

Once you have scanned successfully from the computer, go to the Settings section of the Toolbox to set the default destinations for the scan buttons.

If you only installed the basic driver, you can scan with Paint (XP or Vista), File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista also has Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery to acquire scans. I don't know the Mac software. Third-party software will also work if installed.

I hope this helps.

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.

8100 Visioner conflicts with Vista


Verified to work with Vista Home Premium x64 (should work for x32 as well):


1. Make sure your 8100 is unplugged.


2. Go to Visioneer's website and download drivers for the OneTouch 9420 scanner:

http://support.visioneer.com/products/home/9420/downloads_1.asp


3. Install the drivers. Nothing will work... yet, don't worry.


4. Now plug in your 8100. You'll get a message saying that Vista wants to find drivers. Select "Ask Me Later" or just cancel.


5. Next, open up Control Panel and then Device Manager. Find your 8100 in there (probably listed as "Unknown Device") and then right click on it and say "Update Driver Software". Now click "Browse My Computer For Driver Software" then "Let Me Pick From A List Of Device Drivers On My Computer".

6. Scroll down to "IMAGING DEVICES" then find Visioneer, then you should see the "Visioneer 9420" driver. Select it. You'll get a warning from Vista, but continue anyways. That's it... everything should work.

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.
