You may have to install or update drivers Most of the
drivers/software I get are from a web site driverguide.com you need to fill out
a free registration then search for the driver you need download it in a format
you can use install it and then most times reboot the computer

Hi , I succeeded to run my Scanjet 4470c under w7 32-bit Ultimate this way : 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 http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html 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 . In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works . Regards.
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 :http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html 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 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.
Scanjet 4470c does'nt work under Vista nor W 7 . No drivers available . Here are a few hints : 1° hint : 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 http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html Open Freekapture , 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 . In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works . 2° hint : If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD ( http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/desktop_downloads/vmware_player/3_0 ) You could also partition your HDD ( http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html ) and install W XP on the new one . Otherwise , you will have to buy a new scanner , what you probably allready have . Regards .
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.
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.
