Downgrade back to XP. That's what a lot of people are doing.

My hp 3300c scanner is not working with vista home

There are no specific drivers for your scanner for the Vista operating system. You might be able to get some use out of it if Vista tries to communicate with the scanner using some type of generic driver. Unfortunately if this doesn't work, your only recourse is to purchase a newer scanner.

HP ScanJet 3300C Drivers for Mac

My 3300C is back from dead. It's ALIVE!!!! I am not a geek - just a stupid gene cloner/researcher/academic faculty/administrator (I have never changed oil in my car). The steps I took are as follows (the order is important): 1) Go to "" and you will see a scary table. Do not get intimidated. You will only download "packages" under the system your mac is running (check "About This Mac" under apple). Forget the rest. 2) Open "Libsub - binary" and install it. Then open Libsub SDK and install it. 3) Open Sane Backends - and install binary and then SDK. 4) Open Twain-Sane Interface and install it. 5) Open Sane preferences and install. I then restarted my computer (may be not necessary) and opened Photoshop - under File>Import, I had a new option "SANE...". It found the scanner and presented an extremely funky window to adjust coordinates some choices. Don't mess with coordinates, choose "Preview" instead. Give some time for scanner to respond. A few groans later preview is presented next to the funky window - adjust the coordinates and scan :-)

Scanjet 3300c does not work in WindowsXP

I had the same problem and was having no luck with suggested solutions from HP. But the following procedure did work for me. It disables WIA, the built in XP scanning software. See

1. Right click My Computer.
2. Click Manage.
3. On the left, click the plus sign on Services and Applications.
4. Double click Services.
5. On the right side, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) and right
6. Click Properties.
7. On the General tab, set Startup Type to Disabled.
8. Click OK.
9. Exit Computer Management.
