    not compatible with windows vista

  • OldSpeed Jul 16, 2008

    My problem is basically the same. I purchased a HP Pavilion, and was stuck with Microsoft's Vista, of course. Naturally, my Visioneer 4400 was incompatible! Microsoft does still have the world by the short ones, after all. Before I jump to Ubuntu in frustration, is there a simpler solution?

I have downloaded the disc for visioneer 4400 usb scanner. The software is there but Vista says there is no scanner hardware? It had been working on my old desktop but now I am trying to install it on my...

make sure that when you installed the software, that the scanner wasn't plugged into the laptops USB port. That is a known issue with USB devices. If they are plugged in during the install, there's a good chance that they may not work. Always wait for the software to prompt you to plug the device in

Will this Visioneer 4400 scanner driver work on Windows 7?

Currently there is no driver available for win 7.But one of my friends had the same issue and he
fixed it by asking windows to automatically find the driver from internet and it worked for him.So I suggest you try the same,this is what you need to do

1) First go to control panel,then open Program and Features.
2) Uninstall any driver for the Visioneer 4400 scanner that you have previously installed and reboot the computer,if there is no driver installed then skip this step.
3) Make sure your scanner is connected to the computer,now right click on "My Computer" and click "Manage"
4) Now choose "Device Manager" from the left panel and it should list all the devices on your computer on the right side.
5) Now select the option "Scan for Hardware changes" from "Action" menu on the same window,you can also do this by right clicking on any of the device name in the list (ex,drivers,keyboard) and choose "Scan for Hardware Changes"
6)A new category named "Imaging Devices" should appear on the device list now and when you expand it by clicking on the arrow, it should show your scanner as "42 Bit USB Scanner"
7)Now right click on "42 Bit USB Scanner" and select "Update Driver Software".
8) Now choose the first option,"Scan Automatically for updated driver Software" and Windows
should automatically find a working driver and install it.Now your scanner should work.

Let me know if it helped,good luck!

Where do i get downloable vista softwaare for a visioneer 4400 sc

It looks like the manufacturer does not have Vista support for this model, any how, here is the link from their website. You still should be able to use WinXP drivers. When Vista belly aches tell it to use the driver anyway, Vista will discard what it doesn't need and load it just the same. I hope this helps.

I went to the Visioneer site and got the driver. The url is here:
I need to run it using Picasa or Windows Scan manager as there is no ICON on the desktop. Perhaps the CD installs it. Not sure.

Visioneer 4400 usb scanner

here is my solution --uninstal the drivers form device manager unplug the power plug on back of scanner --go to visioneer website and get the xp driver for the 4400 scanner--save instead of running the download ---right click the downloaded installer and click compatable --make to run in xp mode and click OK--install the drivers as prompted when installed restart if prompted then plug the power back into the scanner----instal drivers as prompted --unfortunately --vista wont put the icon in my computer like xp does--the solution is to open program WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY click file at top then import from scanner etc --the familiar page will come up with your scanner to preview or scan as you did before vista----this is the way i use it on vista home basic and i dont have any problems--hopefully you wont either
