Question about HP Scanjet 5400c Flatbed Scanner

2 Answers

Precision Pro 3.1

I just bought a new Dell laptop with Vista Home premium.

When I plgged in the USB from the HP 5400C scanner, it said that the driver loaded. But it doesn't even see the disc when I try to load the Precision Pro 3.1 software. The drive in my laptop sees other disks and the disk works fine from my desktop PC. Is there somewhere else I can get the required software? Any ideas? Thanks!!

I'm wondering, why HP doesn't support there products?! Scanjet 5400c is in good condition and I don't want to spend more money, because somebody else doesn't wont to do his job!


Hi droussanov !
Hp doesn' t support your unit anymore since Windows XP and it's a shame . Here are 3 workaround solutions :
solution one:
You can get your unit working in WIA mode if you can follow this :
make sure your XP ( yes XP ) driver is correctly installed .
Download FreeKapture from
http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html
Launch Freekapture , clic on Scan , select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Your scanner will run . If you choose HP PrecionScan Pro , program will hang .
Note : no slides or negatives scans possible in WIA mode but the rest works .
solution two :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
solution three :
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.
Back up your data first.

Have a nice day ,
Best regards,
Fanaudi .

My HP SCANNER 5400C don't work in my operation system WINDOWS7 64BITS could you help me?


you probably need to contact Hp directly. there is now windows 7 drivers on their website and I have heard people getting it to work with the XP drivers on the 32 bit version, but the 64 bit version is a whole new beast. I would suspect you are going to be shopping for a new scanner
sorry....

I have an Epson 2400 flatbed scanner and a new HP


It is supposed to yes, as I simply looked on the epson.ca website since i'm from canada, and in the drivers downloads page, the drivers and ICM color profiles that you can download are both listed as working with Vista 64-bit. Here is the link I used in case it might help you out: http://www.epson.ca/cgi-bin/ceStore/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=14587&prodoid=21643926&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows&x=15&y=13

Let me know how it turns out!

Driver for windows vista home premium sp1


HP doesn't have a Vista driver for Scanjet 3400c. I'm afraid your scanjet isn't compatible with Vista.

4200 hp scanjet not compatible with vista


I used the HP latest driver download named sj655en.exe from their website and after 29months of not working, it DID and DOES work now!
The HP Precision Scan LT interface has a little problem of "save as" naming your file since it does not show the file name but you can just add the file name to the folder name and then it'll save your scan.
All of my apps work fine using the import function to the HP Precision Scan LT application.
Since I know HP did NOT update their driver, I'm guessing it's Microsoft having changed something with Vista Home Premium.
Good luck with your re-try of getting the old HP4200C Scanjet working again on your Vista operting system.

I have a Memorex U48 Flat Bed Scanner and have bought a new compouter with Vista. I need a driver download to work with Windows Vista. Thanks jreowens@aol.com


get the winXP driver MEMu1.50 (still available), there are no Vista drivers. Run the installation using WinXP emulation in Vista. You must run the installation as if you are in XP, not necessary when using the scanner subsequently. Now the Memorex 48u works on a Dell Dimension, running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope this helps. I got the scannner for $14 after rebates at Staples years ago, it won't die.

Use VueScan instead of the Minolta software. A free trial is available so you can test it before you commit to buying it. Available for Windows Vista.
