Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.
So if you manage to get any driver, just test it. The software that came with your scanner should work. (At least in the XP compatible mode)
The next thing you can try is to download any free ware scanner software. Perhaps you can get a trail version of SilverFast, for your scanner. As soon as you have to pay for the software, think of buying a new scanner, because sometimes a Windows 7 or 8 compatible film scanner is cheaper than the software.

The SilverFast software starts at 59 dollar, (not even sure they have a compatible package for your scanner) My pro version costs already 300. But perhaps you can download a trail version there to see if it works for you. (Perhaps if you remove the software or stop using when you have to pay for it, the driver keeps working??)

SOURCE: Software for Canon LiDE 20 scanner (Vista compatible)

did you install the drivers? they were probably downloaded compressed- you need to look at your download list and install from there. don't know if vista refers to it as install wizard, as xp does, but check that the download was actually opened and installed. otherwise, it's sitting on your hdd doing nothing useful. i'm not familiar with vista, know a lot of people who tried it and switched back to xp. still waiting for the user reports for w7. supposed to be a great improvement on vista! so we wait and watch!
anyway, check out whether your patch for your scanner actually was installed!
good luck!

You may use Hamrick VueScan Pro, it installs a driver that makes 1220 to work. Or, if the version of Windows 7 you use support XP Mode, install it.

It's still a good scanner, and mine is working in 7 x64 using XP Mode!

I have a Centrios Digital Film Slide Converter. Software says it is for windows vista.. but won't load.. something about 32 bit or 64 bit.


Apparently not :>(

Compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Mac OSX 10.4.3 and above.

Treat yourself to a new one. The old one is for 32 bit and you have Win 7 - 64bit.

Tevion 50615 drivers


Well, my best guess is that you will not get them. To run the Tevion, you probably will have to use XP mode in Windows 7. Even then, it may be a challenge to find a driver. The usual practice in to check the manufacturer's site for drivers. Sadly, Tevion does not appear to have a website. I supply an address below to its parent company.

I have found a page purportedly with software for a Tevion scanning device. But, I am so doubtful to the authenticity of the site I would not download it on my system to try out without totally backing up my system and expecting to have to restore my system from an iso file consequently. Yes, I would pre-judge the file to be sheer trouble. But it is the only one I have found.

I have a primefilm 2700 scanner and I'm looking for drivers for this scanner for windows 7, can you help out?


Scanners are often not supported when a new operating system comes along.

The simplest solution would be to run an old computer with the correct drivers for the scanner, I'm afraid. You can probably get an old computer for around £30.00, which is far cheaper than buying a new film scanner.

Need to get a VuPoint FS-C1-VP film/slide scanner working with Windows 7 or Mac 10.6.7 operating system.


VuPoint solutions have taken down the product from their products listings on their site, so that means they've ceased support of the device. Since there is no Vista or 7 driver, just an XP one that means that you won't be able to get it running on a windows 7 now or ever. The only other option you have left is to find an independently-developed driver from some programming geek but I had no luck with that. Mac drivers have never even been listed for that device, so same there. What I suggest is installing XP(either physically or virtually) to use with the device or upgrading to a newer device with Vista/7 support. I hope I helped!

OVT Scanner won't run with Windows 7. Vupoint


We suffered this initially on a new laptop with Windows 7. I can't tell if the driver on the Vupoint website has been updated, or is the old XP/Vista driver, but we installed this (1/2011). In Picasa or the Photoimpressions software which comes with the scanner, we were then only able to acquire solid black images. However, when we tried all of the USB ports on the computer, we found that one of them (a USB2 rather than USB1 port) was able to function like normal. We suspect there is a funny issue with the amount of power going to the scanner from different USB ports, and maybe this interacts with the driver in some way.
