    Why not use Vuescan it works with virtually every scanner there is and it is a superb scan app.
    Not only that it can make profiles for you for color management this is an overlooked and very useful aspect of the app.
    Give it a try it won't cost you anything for a free 30 day trial or there are copies around in the "scene".:)

    Thank you all of you.
    I tried all the suggestions of this thread but nothing happened.
    The problem still exists.

    Microtek 5800 or Epson 2450

    Greetings, knowledgeable Windows Vista practitioners! I have two old scanners which I would like to use with my new laptop: Microtek 5800 and Epson 2450. Any thoughts on drivers? Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried the above drivers/programs linked to above... read thru the links posted?

    PS: On "Vista" drivers.... try the XP ones... if they don't work more than likely you will be looking at buying a new scanner "if" your scanners are older models.

    What does the mfg recommend?

    Don't know if this link has any info, but it's got a lot of good info... a tie in with the below in my mind is the cost of any hardware that may have to be replaced... in addition to the DRM el-****-ola in Vista... The coming of "subscription" based push $$$$$ software that MS has planned..
