20 Most Recent HP Scanjet 4470c Flatbed Scanner Questions & Answers

You need to check the specifications of the old scanner. Was it designed to work with Windows 98? If it wasn't then there's little you can do to get it to work with 98. What you could do is look around for the nearest HP scanner that was the next model up after the 3200. A search of E-Bay for old scanners should come up with a cheap second hand model that still works with Windows 98.

You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.

I cane gete because "Find" simply doesn't work (for me?!) in many .pdf documents after updating to the latest Acrobat (around June 2010). I solved this by installing Foxit Reader instead.

Hi ,
There are no drivers running under Windows Seven for this unit.

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 .


Here is a workaround :

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 .
Load FreeKapture , clic on Scan and select WIA Hewlett-Packard . Scanner works fine in this mode . If you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang .
In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works .

Regards ,

Thank you for visiting FixYa .
