Do not connect scanner .
Load XP driver ( yes , XP) , reboot , connect scanner and wait for confirmation of successfull operation .
Reboot .
Dowload and install FreeKapture ( yes , it's free ) from
Open Freekature , clic on Scan and select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Scanjet 4470c works fine in this mode but if you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang .

I need Windows Vista drivers for scanner hp 4470c. The support product of HP does not have it. Thanks

I checked the HP website - probably just like you did. They do not have drivers for the Scanjet 4470c. Looks like time to get a new scanner... You can list the current model on craigslist - maybe someone would be interested in it themselves.

HP Scanjet 4470c compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.1

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.
