Scanjet 5470c with WIndows 7?

Has anyone had success with running the Scanjet 5470c on Windows 7? If so, how??

    Thanks for your reply however the option to choose Windows 7 for this scanner is not there at the HP site. I have tried the versions for Vista and XP and have had no luck. Even HP support could not help me.

    Was wondering if anyone had found a work around.

Better download the latest driver for your scanner from the hp's website and while selecting the new driver you have to specify that you are using windows 7 and also specify if it is 32 bit or 64 bit you will get the driver , install it and connect the scanner it will work ..... thats all....

I have got mine working using XP mode. XP mode is set up to run as 32 bit on a 64 bit Windows 7 install and with this the standard windows XP drivers work fine.

It is a bit of a convoluted solution, but at least you can get scans off it.

I need a driver for the hp scanjet 5470c. I have windows 7 64 bit


Hi anneliehelmu
You are very unlucky : there are no drivers beyond XP . Your device is no more compatible with Windows 7. See from yourself here :

Driver for 5470c scanner will not work with windows 7


Hi ,
Scanjet 5470c does'nt work under W 7 . No drivers available .
Here are a few hints :
1° hint :
Do not connect scanner .
Load XP driver ( yes , XP) , reboot , connect scanner and wait for confirmation of successfull operation .

Reboot .
Dowload and install FreeKapture ( yes , it's free ) from http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html
Open Freekapture , clic on Scan and select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Scanjet 4470c works fine in this mode but if you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang .
In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works .
2° hint :
If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD ( http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/desktop_downloads/vmware_player/3_0 ) You could also partition your HDD ( http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html ) and install W XP on the new one . Regards .

Here are a few hints :

Make sure driver XP ( yes , XP ) is correctly installed . Then , go to http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html and install FreeKapture , it's free .

Otherwise , you will have to buy a new scanner , what you probably already have done .

No power to hp 5470c scanjet. Have not used it for about 6 months. Now can get 0 power. Could it be the power adapter? Or is it in the machine? Have tried different electrical outlets and still no power.
