    just wondering if there's any new info about this - got a free scanner, hp scanjet 4470c and, of course, i'm running vista so can't use it. yet...

    I herd about sane? to upgrade ? BUT I found nothing there.

    Do I download LINUX?

    Do I have to spend as much as my scanner is worth to have an upgrade?

    Is HP or Vista doing anything about this?

    I definitely don't encourage anyone to have a VISTA. In one year I have had to buy a new VISTA program as the pilots that come with their free installation CD does not have the pilots! So you end up formating your computer and then say bye bye unless you spend $200.00 can.

I used to work for HP and called one of the technicians there. Unfortunately there really isn't a solution for this. HP doesn't have a driver to run this unit on Vista. They do however have a program to upgrade or trade in this unit for a new one that does run on Vista.

There is no driver for the scanjet 4470c that works with my Vista system on my Toshiba laptop.

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 :
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 .

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 doesn't list one for Vista but the one for XP usually will work just fine. Go here....

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.
