Introduction Some products do not have full scan functionality in Windows Vista. This is because full-featured Vista drivers are not available for all products, especially older products.

    Under Vista Basic, HP has not been willing to give me the appropriate driver to scan. But the appropriate driver driver does exist because under Vista Enterprise, my 1210 scans prfectly fine with the drivers coming with Enterprise. I think HP just wants to stiff us for a new scanner, and MS to upgrade to Enterprise,

    Can't get scanner to work


    Try oprning up Windows Photo Gallery, then File tab at top, then click on Import from Scanner or Camera.

    The HP should come up as an option, so click on it.

    I found that with upgrade to Vista, the actual SCAN button on the HP 2210 did not work -- but this back door through Photo Gallery lets me scan and import the scan as a jpg file.

    I did it on my own. I just uninstalled the printer and reinstalled using the installation cd. Although the cd was old (from when I bought the printer and now I have vista) it works now. Good luck all.

    Check on the HP website for updated driver for Vista. A lot of printers need specific Vista software. Some older printers will not be upgradable.

    HP PSC 1210 software wont work with vista. That is the software that comes with the printer containing photo disk ,toolbox etc. HP tells me to get a new printer but its the program that needs attention.

    It sounds like you need a TWAIN driver. I would suggest that you do a google search for one. My daughter had the same problem but with a different all in one machine and finding the TWAIN driver solved her problem. Hope this helps.
