Is there a wia driver
Well I too HAD this problem. Upgraded to Win7 64 bit and was unable to install the existing 32 bit drivers (of course) that operate in WinXP and Vista. Called Kodak and there wonderful answer was Buy a New Scanner.
Well this was just not an option. SO I searched and searched for alternatives, to creating a WinXP Virtual machine with VMPlayer or VirtualBox to remote controlling an older WinXP laptop connected to the scanner. None were solutions I felt I could live with.
Then I found VueScan at www.hamrick.com. A small chea scanning software that you can try before you buy. I read through everything on the site including the specific scanner notes for the Kodak I65, then downloaded the trial version.
Once installed you follow the instructions from the site to use VueScans own driver to run the Kodak scanner and lo and behold I got my ORIGINAL Kodak scanner menu to work on Win7 64bit. Then I used the VueScan software to scan a document and it worked like a charm. Albeit with the VueScan watermark.
Now I could have stopped there and called it a success, but I then, tried scanning with my Nitro PDF Pro software and was amazed to get a Perfect scan without the watermark.
Now NOTE, I did not buy the VueScan software at this time, as I don't need it's ability. I just used their driver and driver installation instructions from the website specifically for the Kodak I65. Most likely going to buy the basic version of the software anyway, as I think the guy deserves something for saving my EXPENSIVE I65 from becoming a paperweight.
An Elegant and Complete solution to Kodak's total support failure!

My kodak scan i65 flash eight times and stop for
Just fixed this on one at our company. There are two screws on the output side of the ADF, these hold the cover on. Remove the screws, pull the cover off of the ADF. Where the paper goes in, you will see a small black plastic piece with a spring and a small switch that dangles down, just to the left (as seen when looking into the ADF from the paper's point of view). A tiny straight screwdriver into the slots just below the black plastic piece will release the clips holding it in place. Check the spring. On ours, it had popped loose from the hanging switch. This apparently the paper sensor (documentation on this machine is insanely hard to find). There is a tiny notch at the top of the sensor arm, the straight piece of the spring should rest inside this. The other end should rest below the post that holds the spring. After getting all of this straightened out, our scanner started working again, but of course fixing one problem usually reveals another problem lurking behind....
