Plustek Optipro 9636T - working under Windows 7.

If you scanner only has Win XP drivers, then you have only two choices as those drivers wont work on WIN 7. One is to buy a new scanner, as you have already suggested. The other is to create a virtual machine, load WIN XP onto it, and then install the scanner drivers on the virtual machine. This should work fine as I do it for a piece of software that only works on WIN XP, however it is a bit of a inconvenience to use.

If that works..........

The scanner no longer works on my X7170. It used to work just fine. Wondered if I had a setting change or something. It will copy no problem.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the everything turns back on, reconnect the printer into the computer. Wait for your computer to fully recognize the usb connection. Try to scan again.
You can also try to update your printer driver. Just insert the installation disc into the pc hard drive and run the setup application.

Scanner not feeding on lexmark x7170. paper feeds halfway in them reports error/clear paper jam in scanner document feeder.

I have the same all-in-one printer and have just recently, the unit is a few years old, started having the same problem. I found that that if I make double sure the pages are evenly stacked and very carefully placed in the feeder tray, the problem is less common. It doesn't work everytime but ar least I get my faxes through on the first attempt 75% of the time.

Snapscan 1212u and windows 7

I have found out the hard way that Windows 7 is exactly like Vista - i.e. incompatible with perfectly working equipment - for several PCI add-on cards and my trusted 1212u scanner. My solution: I'm ditching Windows 7 and going for Ubuntu. It supports the 1212u fine with the SANE package. It's ridiculously wasteful to toss working peripherals just because Microsoft can't be bothered to offer decent support for its paid software.

Copies made with or without ADF come out with multiple black streaks

Sounds like you scanner is dead. Not much you can do. New all in one machines use very low quality parts to lure people with the features and then **** out in a year or so to make you buy a new one. HP scanners a somewhat more reliable but can be prone to the same problems.
