Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Unfortunately, there is no driver update from HP for the new operating systems (Like Windows Vista, Windows 7), I've attached the driver download link for Windows Xp below, if in case your Operating System is other than Xp, you have to wait of contact the vendors, hopefully they will provide you some alternative.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed. Concerned, Nooh P.S: Driver for Windows XP
your operating system is not listed above, HP does not have software or driver downloads available for this product in that operating system.
» HP Scanjet 6300c Scanner
(Not your product?)
Alerts for this productNo alerts at this time
That's pretty clear. HP doesn't support Vista on the 6300c
Download the file above > unplug your scanner > install the file above > reboot your computer (if needed) > login into your account > plug the scanner into your usb port > it should automatically detect your scanner > goto device manager > imaging device > right click HP Scan Jet .... > Click on Driver Tab > Click on Roll Back Driver > choose to run the driver on windows xp compatibility mode.
Or use the compatibility wizard to set scanjet pro to run on windows xp compatibility mode
My old HP4200 scanner running on Windows 98 gave me a lot of trouble not initializing also. The easiest fix for me was to power up the unit a couple of minutes prior to plugging in the USB cord. This gave the lamp time to warm up and then the unit would (home out) or synchronize when the PC found the scanner. Also if I recall, HP had a driver update for that model. Hope this helps.
