Epson scanner perfection 1200u photo

I have had this scanner for 7 years on my old windows 98 computer. Now I have moved on to windows xp. Unfortunately, the old software CD-rom is not compatible and my computer will not download it. Please can you tell me how to get a software update for this problem. Thank you.

The driver listed on the web for 2K is compatible with XP.

1) Go to the website http://support.epson.com
2) Under the SCANNERS heading select Epson Perfection Series and then your scanner model.
3) Under the Drivers & Downloads section select Windows. Download the most current driver for your Windows operating system.
4) Follow prompts through survey and license agreement. Choose to SAVE this file to your DESKTOP.
5) When the download is complete, double-click on the Epson icon on the desktop. This will automatically extract the files and begin the SETUP.
6) Follow the prompts to install the scanner, and click on FINISH when prompted.
7) At this point reconnect the scanner to the computer.
8) You will see an ADD NEW HARDWARE WIZARD. Make sure INSTALL THE SOFTWARE AUTOMATICALLY (Recommended) is checked and click NEXT.
9) If a message appears indicating THE SCANNER HAS NOT PASSED WINDOWS LOGO TESTING, click CONTINUE ANYWAY. Then click FINISH.
10) Your scanner is now installed. Restart your computer before testing.

A huge THANK YOU to the person who did the work that Epson
should be doing.

Without the scanner turned on, I downloaded the file, unziped it
and extracted the files. I then ran the .exe
After that I turned on the scanner and let Win 7 install the device.
Simple as pie.

File Names Limited To 7 Characters


Suggestion:

First update your PC to Windows XP service pack 3 and then update all patches after that. The problem will most likely still exist as this limit was an old MS DOS limitation so I'm leaning as the root cause of the problem lies with the Epson Software. After XP is fully updated and patched try the Scanner again. If still limited - uninstall and reinstall the scanner software.

Keep me posted.

Epson Perfection 1200 Scanner Driver Needed for Windows 7


I posted this for another user but i'll post it here too,

I remember looking for hours for a driver for my Epson 1200 scanner back when I upgraded by dad to Vista 64 Bit, eventually I found one. Just today I upgraded him to Windows 7 64 bit and remembered I couldn't get it to work, luckily I was able to dig up the driver I used for Vista 64. Worked great in Windows 7.

I can't remember where I found it so I can't credit the person who made the driver unfortunately, however i've uploaded it to Rapidshare for you to download. Here is the link:

http://rapidshare.com/files/324940248/epsonScan_1.0_Per1200Win64eu.zip.html

Just open up the zip file and run the setup. :)

Hope this helps, Merry Christmas!
