    I also noticed that in the Device Manager the category "Image Device" is now missing and the scanner is placed in a category called "unknown device"

    HP's site does have the 4400c download for Windows Vista. I even have the disc and it will not take it.

Try downloading the drivers from the HP website at: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=61902&lang=en

    As a sidenote, my HP PSC1315 did the same thing. I lost my complete hard drive and when I installed the software from the CD it never recognized it. So I had to reinstall the drivers from the website

Drivers HP scanjet 4400c for windows 7


This worked for me:
Do NOT connect scanner before these first few steps
1. Download & save win xp drivers from HP website: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=28447&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=28441&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228
The 63.4mb file is the only one you'll need
2. Right-click on the saved file and go to its properties. Under the compatibility tab, set the file to run with win xp service pack 3. Apply changes and close properties dialogue.
3. Right click on the same file and choose 'run as administrator'. Accept any windows prompts that may appear and let the program & drivers install.
4. Once the software has finished installing, connect the scanner to your computer (via USB) and turn the scanner on.
5. Restart the computer without unplugging or turning the scanner off.
6. Your scanner should now work fine with the HP Precisionscan Pro utility.

How do I find hp scanjet 4400c for win 7


Hi whitecloudy !
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 .

Win vista doesn't accept hp scanjet 4400c downloaded driver


Hi there from Germany - English isn't the best but got the same problem solved so give it a try:

- first connect scanner to computer without having the drivers already installed
- next computer claims driver cd put in yours from XP or select downloaded XP-driver
- reboot
- try if scanner works - sometimes they do already
- if not head over to System management or system control what it's called in english
- choose add device and choose scanner
- now Windows tries to install a xerox-driver - allow this
- reboot
- and now it should work - if not sue hp! (But buttons for direct printing etc. might not be working anymore - except via the software itself - no more via the buttons

Hope I could help
