HP Scanjet Scanners Windows 7 Drivers Download

HP Product users like me are scattering all around for the compatibility of their scanners and products with windows 7 and also for availability of windows 7 drivers. In order to give a quick one post information regarding compatibility of HP Scanjet Scanner products with Windows 7 and the availability of software and driver downloads for Scanjet scanners, I reformatted the below categorization table with the download link of windows 7 drivers For HP Scanjet Scanners.

Through the below chart you can check whether the windows 7 drivers for your scanner and also the compatibility with windows 7. As Per HP(Hewlett Packard) Software and drivers for below listed products will be available as part of the Windows 7 operating system, on Microsoft’s Windows® Update, or as a download from hp.com. If the Drivers and Software are available from HP Website, I enabled the link, which directs you to the drivers download page at HP.

To understand the below table better check mark indicates that the windows 7 drivers are available for your product, either they are In Windows 7 Operating System Or From Microsoft Windows 7 Update Or They are available from HP Official Product Drivers Download Page

And on the other hand cross mark indicates that the drivers are not available under the three categories as mentioned above.

  1. I realize it takes time and money to update the software to work with Windows 7, but why would I buy another HP scanner when it may have to be scrapped because HP stops supporting it? My 4200C still works like new, but I have to keep an XP computer around just to use the scanner. The Windows compatibility settings are no help.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Maybe you have a solution, vuescan picks up the scanner, windows device manager sees it (gonna assume after vuescan has been installed) however I cannot find a way for WIA to see it or photoshop to use any deskscan or precicion scan. Scanner is a HP 4p scanjet and an adaptec card. Thank you

  3. I am pretty majorly upset by the number of *not* supported scanners, vs. the relatively few which are supported.

    It is interesting that Microsoft is supporting some rather old HP printers, like my 1120c, in Windows 7, but not equally old HP scanners.

    Yea, as mentioned, I could throw away my perfectly good scanner, and buy a new one (but certainly not another HP, I learned my lesson!), but that doesn't seem quite right.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Why oh Why no Windows 7 drivers for perfectly usable scanners? Mine is a 4200C with lots of life in it. It certainly won't do any good for HP sales as we wil not be getting another one!

  5. HP Sucks!!! Both my HP Scanjet 4850 AND HP Laserjet 2600n do not have Windows 7 drivers. Therefore I will NEVER buy another HP Product ever again.

  9. I have a Scanjet 3300C which was working perfectly until I installed Win7, and now it is impossible to get a driver that will make it work.
    Thanks for a poor driver support HP, I will reward you by not buing another of your products.

    ReplyDelete
  10. One thing is to have basic drivers, which makes it a pain to use the scanner. Another is to have the real drivers. If you buy a Super car and then the engine stops working, you will not be happy if the maker gives you a 1000cc engine to use on it and tells you , look you cars works....I have a perfect good scanner, 3970, and now I will have to scrap it, as HP does not have drivers for it for win 7. This just mean 1 thing, bye bye HP, hello Canon.

  14. Buyer beware: HP doesn't support growing technology, like Windows 7. But does puts its time and energy into creating extra crap to fling all over your system when you install their software. An online source suggested installing HP Solution Center as a way to to deal with this scanner software conflict. The confict was not resolved, but I got a lot of add-ons like a Yahoo tool bar added IE, HP Updater (not that crap again), a feature to make web printing better, and more, without giving me the choice. I immediately unistalled all of it and started researching Epson scanners online.

  15. Succeeded to make 4470c run under Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit in WIA mode ( officially impossible ). No big deal . Works fine with free third party applications such as FreeKapture .

  17. I have an very old 4c with a SCSI connection. I use an Adaptec AHA 2940UW/B SCSI card with the vista driver, and an XP driver for the 4c (scanjet4c sj166en.exe) which I think I got from CNET.

    The scanner seems to work better than it did with XP!

  18. I have a perfectly good 4600 scanner that won't work with the default Windows driver. While I've used and liked HP products in the past, it's lake of support like this that causes me to take a serious look at the competition.

    If you have two good scanners to buy and one manufacturer supports it on a new operating system and the other doesn't, it makes the decision to buy pretty easy.

  19. They did same with CD burners back in the day when they were really expensive. I'm a hardware technician and I steer away all my clients from their products telling them why they should not buy HP. Do the same, tell everyone you know, they'll be next asking for govenment bailout money.

  20. Go into device driver and the scanner is shown though not working. Click on drivers update through internet and it works. Just scanned a doc on my hp laptop win7 64 with my scanjet 3500c.

  23. Scanjet 4600 should run under Windows 7 . Open Device Manager , find device and update driver via Internet

  24. I have a Scanjet 4p that I used with my XP system. With the upgrade to Windows 7 that was the ONE thing that would not migrate. I can understand from a consumer standpoint how hardware companies would want people to replace their old $100 scanner with a new $100 scanner every few years, but a commercial scanner that is well built and still does a good job despite it's age? I have to throw a perfectly good scanner out the window because the company cannot provide some simple files? Like you all said, invest in another company, not Cannon either since they are no better at supporting Windows 7.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I must agree with the majority of the comments on this site. HP SUCKS! I recently upgraded my computer system which came with Windows 7. As a result my $200 HP ScanJet 4980 has been reduced to a $50 scanner. All the abilities for scanning negatives/slides, scan to print/email, gone. Thank you HP!.

    I downloaded the drivers from HP but that is all you get. They haven't bothered to upgrade the fully functional software to be compatible with Windows 7. I called the support and they wanted $25/hr to provide assistance (mine is out of warranty). I figure it would $25/hr to tell me "can't help you". This is the only HP product I have ever purchased and will never again.

    I checked into Vuescan. Beware, it will not enable the ability to scan negatives/slides in the 64-bit version of Windows 7 (which I have) but apparently is fully functional in the 32-bit version.

    Guess I'll be recruiting a Monk when I need a copy made.

  26. Some Scanjets won't work with ScanView if the Hp driver doesn' t work properly . It's the case with my 4470c and one can find confirmation on ViewScan' s site . There are 2 solutions available for those who have the W XP install disk :
    1° install on the Windows 7 HDD a virtual version of Windows XP ( for instance with Wmare Player from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ )
    2° create a partition on the W 7 HDD and install W XP there or install w XP on a second intern drive .

  27. Correction : Some Scanjets won' t work with VueScan ( not Scanview ) ... My apologies for this lapsus .

    ReplyDelete
  28. I along with probably everyone else who purchased a scanner in the days of xp am NEVER going to purchase another product from HP. Their policy of not supporting a product when you have a newer IS is pathetic and unprofessional. The ONLY reasons to have a scanner not work (especially if it is USB compatible) is 1. If we don't use USB connections and 2. If the scanner broke. (lights won't come on. Does't go backwards and forwards)

    HP WAKE UP. I am an IT professional/consultant and I am telling people NOT to buy your products as you don't support them with updates. I have a scanner and printer that are no longer listed.

  29. can someone eventually give us the name of a scanner made 8 or 10 years ago by another manufacturer than HP that's still runs under Windosw 7 ?

  34. After researching a lot on compatibility before I tried installing my Scanjet 4500c on Windows 7, I came to the conclusion it wasn't supported, including the HP ste not having a driver for it. I was able to install it as normal without any problems at all!

  36. I am going to have to recant that statement. After it working perfectly the first time, I was never able to use it again without errors and the scanner hardware crashing. I'm not sUre how it could have operated fine the first time and then subsequently not.

  37. Are you really telling me that I am to bye a new scanner now that I've got Windows 7? Why then isn't it written on the cover, like hey people, get rid of that old crap because we don't want to support you with new new software? Microsoft was sued many times for making people do things and bye products without an alternative, may be it is your turn now...

  39. I have HP ScanJet4200c scanner. It worked fine until I install win 7. I was looking for driver and software for win 7 but no luck. What a garbage piece this scanner is. HP need to be update the software and driver every time when a new operating systems come. This is the way HP can survive in the IT world. If you don't have the software developers, hire unemployed software developers like me. Or go to India or China for cheap developers.

  40. Scanjet 5400c should work in WIA mode under Windows 7 . I have model 4470c and use the same XP driver as for 5400c and it works in WIA mode with HP Pavilion W7 32-bit .

  45. oh well - to join the gang, 10 years of my beloved 4200c - now no longer functional under win 7. It was fun, and a good piece of hardware - why no software support is beyond me. And i will not be buying a new one, 10 years ago i was scanning into my computer my pics - but nowadays with digital pics. But was using it to scan bills etc, but will give that up.

  46. Well, I thought better of HP in the past, and really liked their products. Since they've chosen to abandon Vista and Windows 7 drivers for my IICX scanner, I guess it's time to abandon them.

    Sorry HP, you're on the black list, along with Creative.

    ReplyDelete
  47. To be honest, I've found that my Intel camera, my HP 6200C, my Courier External Fax modem, and a bunch of software will not run under 7. I'm starting to seriously consider returning to XP. It works, it's reliable, and everything runs under it. Plus why bother learning a whole new OS?

    I used to upgrade every time Msoft released a new OS. Vista was so bad, I skipped that. I'm now thinking of skipping 7. Who needs the hassle?

If anyone can find a solution to get my 2840 scanner to work, I will be grateful

  57. Good people,
    For whatever it's worth, I got my 4470 c working in W7 32 bit Ultimate by setting Precision Scan Pro to run in Windows 2000 compatibility mode.

    Right-click on the EXE file, click "Properties", click "compatibility", choose "Windows 2000" from the list. I tried Windows XP SP 3 compatibility, but that didn't work...

    You get the "Do you want this program to make changes blah blah blah" dialogue, but that's a small price to pay for getting the scanner to work.

    HTH, I was about to give up when this fix dawned on me.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Looks like my enthusiasm was premature. It's all very unstable. The program still hangs. Sorry

  59. I am under w7 32-bit and my scanner is a scanjet 4470c .
    Before connecting the device , I installed Xp driver PrecisionScan Pro 3.1.3.0 .
    Downloaded and installed Freekapture ( yes , it's free ) from
    http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html
    Connected Scanjet 4470c and rebooted .
    Opened FreeKapture , clicked on Scan and selected WIA-Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 4470c 1.0 ( 32-32) . Scanner works fine in this mode . If you choose HP Precisionscan Pro , program freezes .
    In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works .

  64. I upgraded to Win7 Ultimate. With my ScanJet 4600, I downloaded HP Photo and Imaging Software v2.4 (col6904mu1.exe) for WinXP and it works. Win7 has the scanner drivers in native format (install automagically), but we need the software. Do this: download the 4600 software; use WinRAR to extract the software from that download to a new folder; right-click Setup.exe and select tab; select and , then . Bingo!

  66. I spoke the HP people regarding new drivers

    It is all about money (your money) they want you to buy a new scanner - period !!!

    But like me I would now never purchase a new HP Scanner (I have several) - if I can only use it for a couple of years

    Apparently (although yet to try it) - you can install a virtual XP onto Windows 7 called

    ""Windows Virtual PC & XP Mode for Windows 7"" and do it that way - not ideal but I guess it is one way to stick some fingers up at HP - keep your functionality and your money

  67. Same here have a hp scanjet 3300c in new condition, won't work with windows 7 premium. we also can blame microsoft! they should include a driver for all these scanners and printers.

    It's called capitalism and we should all be happy to live in that system . HP doesn't support obsolete drives anymore : et alors ?
    Windows XP was perfect for my modest needs . Why now Windows 7 ? Business , my friend , business ...

  71. I'm joining the anti-HP gang ! My HP scanjet 4500c scanner, which was functioning perfecrtly (or nearly) well under W2000 and XP is now good for the rubbish heap with W7. HP never again !

    ReplyDelete
  72. Scanjet 4400c IT WORKS!
    Like all of you, unhappy owners of HP scanners since updating to Win 7, I tried unsuccessfully to install it in the normal way and no luck. Then I started searching and I found out the “misery” that as other stated above, HP worked to add in their software a lot of not useful software like different toolbars and bla-blas and didn’t offer us, former or why not potentially actual buyers of HP products, a small support to make those scanners work. Shame HP!
    Here is what I did, of course inspired by reading different posts above, thanks all of you.
    1. I downloaded the driver from HP. I was asked for which OS and I selected Windows 2000.
    2. Saved the driver (sj659en.exe) on the desktop.
    3. Right click on it, then Properties then choose Compatibility tab and under it in the field Compatibility mode I checked “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and I selected Windows 2000. Then hit OK.
    4. I double-click the file and installed it. I choose Custom install and I installed only the main scan application and choose not to install the other options. Next, Next and finalize installation. At some point, during the installation you are asked to choose connectivity way and I selected USB (not parallel or other…). I did all the installation with the scanner ON and USB cable connected, as far as I remember usually you are asked NOT TO HAVE the scanner connected.
    5. I downloaded a third party imaging software for scanning like Irfan view and installed, no tips tricks here – just installed it normally.
    6. Open Irfan view and under the File tab choose “Select Twain Source” and then select WIA-Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 4400c 1.0 (it was also there “HP Precisionscan Pro 3.13.0 “ which I didn’t choose). Click Select tab and then close the box dialog.
    7. Put a file in the scanner and then use the combination CTRL-Shift-A to make that sleepy machine work……… And MAGIC! It worked.
    8. Last, I was thinking that probably I am lucky and after disconnecting the USB cable it won’t work. I did it in the brutal way simply disconnecting the USB cable from my laptop and connecting it again in the same port - and WORKED again.
    Good luck to all of you. Please post if you succeed.

  73. I had to reinstall XP and thus the software that goes with the HP Scanjet 4370 that worked pretty well until then.

    It literally took over my computer, changed the user configurations and so many things that I didn't even find my documents. I almost had a heart attack.

    I uninstalled it and finally I managed to restore my system to two days before and got back my computer.

    Now I need the scanner and I don't know how to install the basic features without all the blotware-imaging-zone crap. I can't remember how I did it before.

    I will never buy a HP product again either.

  75. HP makes it difficult to contact them if your HP unit is out of warranty (Without paying them for the privilege of talking to them...)! Snoop around on their web site and you will find a way to send a message to their CEO.

    I did that and actually got a person on the phone in answer to my message about how disapointed I was with HP for not having Win7 drivers for my 2200c scanner. Bottom line is they don't want to spend the money to support "old" products, nor customer support for them.

    Maybe if everyone with a gripe about the drivers sent a note to the CEO, they might realize the cost to their business that they will incur by pissing off their customers. I, for one, am on the "no more HP" band wagon!

    I told the person on the phone that they had lost a customer. (So what?)

    Write to the CEO!

  76. You people are completely missing the boat. A 10 year old scanner is like a car that needs leaded gasoline. The entire tech world has changed too much for that product to remain compatible. People want new features and functions but then they bitch about change. For one, 10 year old scanners are all either 16 bit or 32 bit. New operating systems are being written predominantly to support 64 bit. Everyone wants higher memory support and other necessary functions. Those require 64 bit OSs. Also, 10 year old scanners predate operating systems with HAL layers. The entire design for the controllers to talk to the PC is outdated. You cannot hold on to it forever. You cannot expect current generation hardware and software to be backwards compatible forever and still support the new features and needs of expanded computing power. It isn't possible. At some point, the old hardware only works with old systems. This is not HP's fault. It is not Microfsoft's fault. What you are expecting is completely unrealistic!

  77. This table "HP Scanjet Scanner Products" looks very promissing, however, it does not help me regarding my Win7 64 bit problem with Scanjet 2400. This is not a fault of the table but of HP (see download link). The provided software can't be installed. And it seems that I'm not alone, it seems to me HP cannot handle Win 7 64 bit. HP provides a software dated 2007, not really what I expect for an actuel Win 7 64 bit software.

  80. People I SURE understand the annoyance with this bs. However there IS an answer for Win 7 32 and 64 bit systems, it is Virtual PC XP Mode. This is the ultimate solution to ANY compatibility problem. You just use XP mode to do your scanning then go back to Win 7 where your modern processing software is.

    To get hold of this go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx.

    It is not hard to figure out, but if you are having any issues with it this thread is NOT the place to go for help.

    Before I remembered about Virtual PC I tried lots of the above suggestions by others to get a Scanjet 3300C working for my wife who wanted to do a heap of old photo scanning without crapping out my access to my PC, this turned out to be the perfect answer and I wish I thought of it sooner!

    The thing is I used Virtual PC soon after Win 7 launched and it was not so flash. however they have fixed a lot of the crap so you can now get the scanner set up to be a single button click off the win 7 menu. This starts XP Mode and auto launches the scanner software. Enjoy....!

  83. YOU ARE IN LUCK A SOLUTION IS IN YOUR GRASP:

    I got my scanjet 3500c to work miraculously and quite by accident with my windows 7. It started when I was trying to make my hp 1012 laserjet (my work horse lol) work with windows 7. go to hp forums http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Windows-7-Beta-and-test/Windows-7-x64-RC-Build-7100-and-HP-Laserjet-1012-Driver-not/td-p/83178 i followed the directions of posting 24 and 36 which made my printer operable with windows 7. After that I went back to try a similar procedure with my scanner. when I opened the device manager to my delight my scanner was already recognized and worked perfectly without having to download any driver at all (besides the hp driver link I downloaded for my printer already) Hope that helps good luck!!

    Oh and shame on you HP for not providing customers with up to date software....you are creating a lot of trash for the people who could not figure this out on their own. In these times where green companies are thriving I see your less than green practices of creating unnecessary amounts of wasted trash a quick path to your inevitable demise. I will no longer buy any of your products and everything i own from laptop to printer to scanner is all hp. Way to fail dumb asses you forgot the cardinal rule of customer satisfaction, the consumer's are the reason that you are in business and we can take that away from you at any time.....

  89. I just built my own computer with the Intel I7-2600k processor, Intel DH67GD motherboard and windows 7 professional. Was surprised I could not load my old HP 4600 scanner software (it ran under XP and this windows version was supposed to support XP software). After searching the internet and almost giving up, I noticed when scanner was plugged in, system indicated the 4600 scanner series driver was correctly installed. Searching around I found the "Windows Fax and Scanner" software seems to work perfectly with the this scanner. Happy now!

  93. The only true way to utilize 'older' hardware is to install a virtual machine. I run Windows 7 and have setup Windows XP via VMware Player. Once inside the XP environment, you can just load the device drivers as you would any typical installation. It may be inconvenient switching between operating systems, but that's a sacrifice you have to make if you want to continue using your current hardware. I am still successfully using my 'old' HP Scanjet 2200c without any problems.

  100. I am also very disappointed that my new Windows 7 computer can't support a driver to run my hp Scanjet 4370. However, I have been able to use my scanner (though not with all the features I used under the old Windows XP) by using the PaperPort program. It is pretty basic, but at least I can still scan.

  101. I#m still using my HP ScanJet 4c without any problems and with still very good results. But now I have to go over to windows 7 and I cann't believe that for my scanner there will be no driver support anymore. It's a sort of ignorance from HP and I'm very disappointed. If it should realy necessary to look for another scanner it won't be HP anymore!

  102. To Costin from Romania (who typed a post in this forum above on March 6,2011 if anyone wants to look up the post):

    I tried your strategy, and it almost worked for me, but when the scanner was scanning pages, the IrfanView software would always stop working in the middle of the data transfer and I'd get a popup message saying "Windows has detected a problem with the software...[IrfanView] must close"
    My scanner is a 5370C scanner from HP, so either it depends on the scanner or maybe my computer has a problem because I had trouble getting the software to install correctly to begin with. Otherwise, thank you for giving me a place to start. Instead of IrfanView, I used the software VueScan and everything works fine. (or, if someone wants to follow Costin's instructions, in IrfanView, when you go to File, Select TWAIN SOURCE, click on the VueScan software and hit select and it should work if your selected scanner doesn't.)
    VueScan doesn't necessarily have to be bought, you can use it for a free trial. Since I just got the software, I don't know if I'll have to pay for it in the future. But I highly recommend it to anyone else if IrfanView doesn't work.
    Also, you can install one of the newer versions of Ubuntu (within the past couple of years or later should be fine) and if your scanner has a USB connection rather than the older connections (like SCSI), you can just turn on the scanner, plug in the USB connection into the computer,and go into Applications (on the desktop menu bar at the top of the screen), then Graphics. If you have an older connection, you will probably have a hard time getting the scanner to work even in Ubuntu unless you're willing to mess with writing drivers/backends. Here's a link for Ubuntu instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/printing/C/scanning.html
    The link for the backends is on the webpage of the link I gave above, but here's the link here too: http://www.sane-project.org/sane-backends.html

  103. To Costin from Romania (2 ). Thanks for the very detailed info but we all have tried that without success . One computer is not the other . I own a Scanjet 4470c and managed to get it running on my old pc under W 7 32-bit ( only in WIA mode ) but their is absolutely no way it will respond under W 7 64 bit on my new pc , period. The solution ? There is a workaround that's worth trying only if you own the W XP install disc with a genuine key . You can then install a virtual version of XP on your machine with http://download.cnet.com/VMware-Player/3000-2094_4-10470784.html or via Microsoft if you have Ultimate or Professional installed . You also can partition your HD and install XP on the second partition . What i did is connecting a secundary HD in my machine and installing XP on it . That' s the only way to get the scanner at work with the full HP program . Otherwise , you need to buy a replacement W7 compatible device .

  113. Hi guys
    I have Windows 7 Ultimate and a 7400 HP Scanner. I had already tried the Windows XP Mode which doesn't help as it grabs the scanner by attaching the USB from Windows 7 (you have to click a button to Attach and Detach the scanner from the XP Mode window). So Windows 7 has a WIA driver but the HP Twain driver will not work through HP Precision Scan Pro. Weirdly if you hit the button on the front of the scanner it uses the Twain driver to scan the image. Paperport 14 won't work though. I set HP Precision scan to compatibility mode as discussed above but that did not help either.

    It seem the problem is with the HP Precision Scan software which integrates with Paperport to supply the Twain driver which HP Precision Scan will not recognise.

    The solution for me was to use the WIA driver, go to the settings button in Paperport and set it to use safe mode in the scanner wizard.

    Now it will import perfectly using Paperport's Scan button.

    Hope it helps someone.

    Windows 7 has a fax and scan program in the start menu that that would work to run the scanner,but still wanted the Hp photo and imaging software to make scan adjustments.
    After reading some of the comments here i tried right clicking the program icon on the desktop and went top properties and then compatibility.
    I changed the selection to windows XP sp3 then apply and closed.
    The progam now opens with a user account screen to allow the change at startup and the program now works as before on the old xp computer.
    The other software from the install disk for the 4600 may have to be changed also, but for now this is all i need!

  124. What happened, have a HP computer running Windows 7 Home Premiun edition (64 bit). I also have a G 4050 scanjet that worked fine for several months. The last time I used it was several weeks ago, now it wont scan anything. When I try to scan, I get the following error, "Error! A required component was not found or improperly installed. Re install the HP Photosmart software that came with the device, and try scanning again."

    HP website for downloads is no help. One would think their search enging could direct you to the proper software.

    Because of all the problems I have had with this system, scanner and previous printers, I wil never purchase another HP product. It doesn't surprise me that they want to get out of the PC business, they can't handle it.

  145. its very very nice job most of the time we face this problem and we are not able to find the driver and the only way is to search it on internet in easy way and its the best software collection i have ever seen.
    thanks HP.

  146. HP is quality . I like it .

  147. Maybe Windows should make their software so it supports old drivers and programs. I have 2 scanners here that are useless. One is HP and the other Lexmark. I think they are all in cahoots!

  148. Windows 7 supports old drivers by offering free Virtual XP Mode in versions Pro , Enterprise and Ultimate .

  151. SOLVED - Scanner HP Scanjet 4400c - Should WORK for ALL type of old scanners not supported anymore for HP and so on……
    I had a post one year ago installing this HP scanner under Windows 7 Pro 32bit, successfully, for me at least. As far as I read, those advices worked probably for some and didn’t for others.
    This year I received a new laptop, a Sony Vaio running Windows Home Premium 64bit with preinstalled genuine license. I used to work with Professional editions but for home use is really good Home Premium, so I am not going to install something else instead like fake license (eg. Windows 7 Pro, Ultimate…..) as long as there is a valid Microsoft license. There are advantages and I really usually encourage people to have genuine license….
    Therefore, I was facing the same problem, but now even more complicated than in the past. I find myself searching my files for the old instructions I made myself, followed them and failed installing my “beloved scanner”……. I tried Vue Scanner, Irfan View – Nothing worked!!!!
    HERE IS THE SOLUTION!
    XP Mode Virtual Machine! I installed it on my laptop under Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and work like a charm!!! Also I installed it under Windows 7 Professional 32-bit on another PC at home and during the installation I decided to write all the steps I made.
    No more conflicts. Don’t get scary. It's very easy. I have a step by step instructions but it's too long to post it here (here only 4.096 characters are accepted).
    If there is someone interested, send me a mail at hpcostin.romania@gmail.com and I'll send the the complete instructions.
    Best

  154. SUCCESS!!!!
    I finally got the 7400c to work with windows 7 / 32
    Here is how

    1) - DISCONNECT AND POWER DOWN THE SCANNER - IMPORTANT -

    2)
    Go into your device manager, and if you see the 7400 printer DELETE it.
    If it asks for permission to delete the driver files LET it DELETE them.

    3) - UNINSTALL ANY Precision scan software that you have installed.

    4) - REBOOT... from a power down state.

    5)
    Go HERE and get THIS version of precision scan pro
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&softwareitem=sj-21893-1
    It wil down load an Self extracting archive file called Sj668en
    It is NOT the latest version.. but thats ok
    DO NOT INSTALL IT YET

    6)
    GO HERE and get THIS driver
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategoryos=2093&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=59553#N180

    DO NOT LET IT INSTALL; just get it.

    7)
    From desktop locate the precision scan software you downloaded. (Sj668en)
    Right click on it go to Properties > compatibility > Change setting for all users
    CHECK - Run this program in compatibility mode
    Pull down - Windows Xp Service pack 3
    CHECK Privledge level - Run program as administrator
    Click Ok all the way back out

    8)
    Right Click on sj688en, select run as administrator
    LET it run and do its thing.
    When it asks to install CANCEL it

    9)
    Navigate to the folder you just created...
    find the setup program - Setup.exe
    Right click on it go to Properties > compatibility > Change setting for all users
    CHECK - Run this program in compatibility mode
    Pull down - Windows Xp Service pack 3
    CHECK Privledge level - Run program as administrator
    Click Ok all the way back out

    The right click on the setup program, select "run as administrator"
    Let it install -
    DO NOT RUN the installed program yet, it wont work

    10)
    Navigate to the file you downloaded called "setup_basic_7400.exe"
    Right click on it go to Properties > compatibility > Change setting for all users

    Right click on it .
    The right click on the "setup_basic_7400.exe" program, select "run as administrator"
    Let it install

    AFTER its finished... IMMEDIATLY REBOOT.

    11)
    Connect the scanner to a DIFFERNT USB port than the one you had it connected to prior to this. If you never had it connected then any port will do...

    12)
    Let windows do its dance, and tell you if found the drivers...

    13)
    Now find the hp prescision pro 3.02 program
    NOT THE SHORTCUT
    Right click on it go to Properties > compatibility > Change setting for all users
    CHECK - Run this program in compatibility mode
    Pull down - Windows Xp Service pack 3
    CHECK Privledge level - Run program as administrator.
    Click Ok all the way back out

    14)
    RUN the program....
    Start a new scan... If all goes well you should see the "initializing scanner dialog box", and hear the scanner dancing.
    You should be good to go...

    Good luck

  156. Guess I'm late to this party, but I finally disconnected an old XP machine. I had no problems printing to a very old 1220C (Mfg Date May 2001), but my ScanJet 6200C (That is at least 5 years newer) seems to be a lost cause because of the lack of Win 7 driver problem that everyone else is having problems with.

  157. I have a question that is not related directlyy to this post but I am gonna ask anyway.. Does HP has to offer an id scanner as this one?

  158. Seams I'm not the only one with issues with HP peripherals. Had a Mustek 1200UB scanner for years on XP. Updated to Win 7 pro and no drivers, but fair play its been used so much and is old, so time to get a nice shiny new scanner. I have a HP XW8200 PC so bought an HP scanner, that'll work fine with it I think. Ahh !! wrong !!. Fine when I installed, used it, yup, working fine, shut down PC, rebooted next day, no scanner. Checked in device manager and I have unknown device, hmm, unplugged USB from scanner and plugged in, ping! up pops scanner in the unknown device section. OK working again. Shut down, reboot, unknown device again. No on/off button on the scanner, front buttons don't work when its not powered and starting the PC doesn't power up the scanner. It's not a USB issue as my Mustek worked fine on the same PC under XP and it's not a Win 7 issue as the Mustek even with no driver does at least power up when I plug it into my PC and boot it up. The only way I can get the HP scanner to start is unplugging the mini USB from the back and plugging it back in, yeah coz mini USB isn't going to break doing that every time is it hmmm. Insult to injury. I open an editing package I want to scan into, launch the twain to import, software opens, scan in 1 page. OK fine, turn page over to scan the next side..oh the scanner app closes after each scan..WTF ? I have to go to import>TWAIN>scanner every time I want to scan. Painfully slow and utterly moronic. Over the years since about 1990 I've had Mustek, Visioneer, Canon even my Pacific Image slide/Neg scanner stayed open until I finished scanning in what I want. Frankly I could have bought some generic unbranded scanner from China for half the price and had less harrassment from it than my HP scanjet200 scanner. Sorry HP won't be buying HP products again. Piss poor and headache inducing. Maybe HP should employ real normal real life users to put into device and software what real people want, not the developers whims and marketing revenue empty headed suits. A scanner that starts when I start my PC so its ready to use without unplugging and plugging back in. A scanner app that stays open until 'I' close it. Would I like a free toolbar? no WTF has that got to do with the sheet of paper on my scanner? HP have become yet another shill, being pimped out like a cheap hooker by advertisers and affiliates pushing bloatware out over decent products. Shame, HP 'Used' to be good.

  163. I managed a sort-of work around by downloading the Vista 64-bit drivers for my Scanjet 3530c from the HP web site. At least they let me run the scanner from Windows 7 Fax & Scan, though I miss the capabilities of the HP scanning software to save in formats like PDF... I'm toying with the idea of hooking the scanner up to my Linux box and running XSANE as a plug-in for GIMP, to see if that makes life any easier...

  164. An add-on to my previous comment: I tried using Windows 7 update to get the driver for my Scanjet 3530c, but the Windows 7 update service didn't admit to anything.
