I Need a New Scanner...

Postby jacobfernandas » Fri Jul 10, 2009 1:26 pm

Just bought a new HP pc with home edition Vista installed. Apparently, my old scanner (HP 4200 c) won't work with Vista due to incompatible drivers.

I loved my old 4200 and would like to find sonething comparable in the $100-200 price range. I've read a few of the scanner reviews, but many are contradictory--some reviewers like a certain scanner, while others hate it, etc. Also, some say that given models won't work with Vista. But, I've emailed a few manufacturers, like HP and Epson, and they all say that all of their scanners now work with Vista.

I plan to scan only photos and a few documents (no slides) and don't have any large batches to scan.

Any help or suggestions?

Thanks very much.

Either dual boot your computer with XP/Vista or get a second machine with XP and then transfer the files to your new computer through a local network or sneakernet.

The third option is to buy a new scanner.
