I have a tevion film strip scanner suitable for software Windows XP and Vista but my new laptop is Windows 7 and now it won't work. Can I download the software to use the scanner with my new l


Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.
So if you manage to get any driver, just test it. The software that came with your scanner should work. (At least in the XP compatible mode)
The next thing you can try is to download any free ware scanner software. Perhaps you can get a trail version of SilverFast, for your scanner. As soon as you have to pay for the software, think of buying a new scanner, because sometimes a Windows 7 or 8 compatible film scanner is cheaper than the software.

The SilverFast software starts at 59 dollar, (not even sure they have a compatible package for your scanner) My pro version costs already 300. But perhaps you can download a trail version there to see if it works for you. (Perhaps if you remove the software or stop using when you have to pay for it, the driver keeps working??)

Scanner doesnt have a driver for windows 7


This may help. Depending on your version of windows 7 you may be able to run Windows XP as a virtual machine and still user your scanner under XP Mode. You will have to install the XP driver for your scanner on the XP virtual machine running on your Windows 7 computer.

Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software.

HERE is the direct link to instructions on downloading and using XP Mode on Windows 7

I have been given a medion scanner August 2002 and hoped to scan some old photos by using my new laptop DELL WIDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM.no such luck.My laptop will not recognise or connect to it.I have followed...


Hi alistair49,

Firstly, is your laptop connected to the internet when trying to install your scanner?
Windows 7 will automatically browse Microsoft's online database of drivers if it's not found in your laptop database.
If you are in fact having driver issues, have you checked the following web page to locate your scanner software?

http://www.medion.com/gb/service/download/driver.php

If, however, you have the drivers, make sure that these are compatible with Windows 7 as your scanner was manufactured before Windows 7 existed. In this case try using Windows 7 compatibility wizard to install your scanner software.

You can do this by right-clicking on the installation file & selecting "troubleshoot compatibility" from the drop-down menu. Simply follow the on-screen directions step by step to check if Windows 7 has compatibility issues with your scanner software. In most cases this procedure should solve your problem.

Best wishes,
Graeme.

I have lost the instalation disc for my hp scanjet 2200c scanner what can i do now also will it install on windows 7


Hi,

Its difficult to say if the driver software will work on Windows 7, although Windows 7 is very forgiving when it comes to older software. Here is the link to the driver and software page for your scanner:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=uk&prodNameId=28416&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=28415&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228

Try the Windows XP driver and remember that if you have any compatibility issues, you can always right click on the driver setup file and choose the compatibility wizzard: In this case, choose the Windows XP compatibility option.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Scanner not working


There is not a driver available for Windows 7. One thing you can try is to run the software in windows XP compatibility mode if your version of Windows has it. When you go to run the software disc for the scanner goto my computer and right-click on the icon then click properties. You can then set the compatibility mode to run on XP. Then run the software by double left click on the icon after you have set the compatibilty mode for XP. I cannot guarantee this will work but it is worth a try. If you download the software to the desktop the process is the same.
