This is pretty ancient model, but... you can try to use winxp twain driver and it should work, your registry most probably will need bit of tweaking... version which will most probably work is TWAIN Driver v5.53A,

follow this procedure, disconnect your scanner from computer, run ccleaner to clean all rubbish, including registry clean.

download twain driver and then run it, force vista to accept it, reboot your computer. connect scanner and you will have then warning from vista about digital signature, disregard it and force install software. scanner should work.

i still would suggest newer version...

Its working perfectly with Epson 2400U drivers.
  • Download and install the Perfection 2400U drivers from Epson USA, version 3.04A http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...rm=OSF_W_10-64
  • Connect and turn on your scanner

  • The Perfection 1200U will be shown under under Other Devices
  • Select Update Driver
  • Choose 'Browse my computer for driver software"
  • Choose 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
  • UNCHECK the 'Show compatible hardware'
  • Click on 'Epson' in the Manufacturer box, and the scroll down through model until you find "Epson Perfection 2400', and choose that, and press Next

I can not install my Epson scanner perfection 1200 photo on my laptop vista 32bits OS?


It all depends on what driver you have, it would probably be best if you went to the Epson web site, followed links for support and downloads and downloaded the latest driver for you scanner/operating system.

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=14557&prodoid=8161&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows


When I say that, I've just had a look and it maybe the case that this scanner isn't supported for Vista and beyond.

My only other suggestion to use their contact us link and ask them.

Epson perfection 1200 photo scanner won't work now I have changed to Windows 7. I cannot find any software update to help.


Okay, after careful investigation I have found that your scanner is not windows 7 complaint there fore there is no driver solution for this scanner. If you read below the last operating system this worked on was NT

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=FAQs&oid=14557&prodoid=8161

Now if you have windows ultimate you can run a virtual machine on this and hopes it will work, Also a dual boot will be a solution as well. Otherwise its not compatable.

Thanks and pelase do be considerate when leaving a rting to this fact.

I want to upgrade my Epson Perfection 1200 Photo flatbed scanner so I can use it in Windows XP


Are you talking normal XP or something more specialist...If normal just download the twain driver from the epson site. I cannot get the copy utility to work but the twain give you the functionality to scan. Following the other threads here I have been able to get this scanner two work even better on 64bit Vista

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!

Any chance of a driver for Epson Perfection 1200 scanner with windows 7 64bit


RapidShare is dead.

I used this link today 7-24-2012 and it worked like a charm.

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.
