Have you tried the one from Epson,

Epson America, Inc. - Support: Microsoft Windows 7 Support for the Epson Perfection 2480 Photo

Just downloaded it and checked the INF and it supports both 32 bit and 64 bit.

Code:
[Strings]
Mfg                    = "EPSON"
ES41.DeviceDesc        = "EPSON Perfection 2480/2580"
DSName                = "EPSON Perfection 2480/2580"
StartButton            = "Start Button"
CopyButton            = "Copy Button"
MailButton            = "Scan to E-mail Button"
SaveButton            = "Scan to PDF Button"
RegSection            = "SOFTWARE\EPSON\EPSON Scan\ES0041"
RegSection.x64        = "SOFTWARE\WoW6432Node\EPSON\EPSON Scan\ES0041"
ScanApp                = "EPSON Smart Panel"
DiskName            = "EPSON Scanners Driver Disk"
ICCName                = "PER248_R.ICM,PER248_T.ICM"

Don't work?

I downloaded the drivers from SEIKO Epson and installed them after I deleted all epson drivers without my USB port being plug in like it says. It don't work. My last computer with Windows 7 (64 bit) had this scanner on it for over a year so what could I be doing wrong?

Well I just visited the looked for your drivers at Epson's website, and looked at the link Stormy presented, the same page I came to when looking, and it appears that Windows 7 64-bit isn't supported

BTW I have two Epson Printers (2200 & R800) and an Epson Scanner (Epson Perfection 2400) all of which are Windows 7 64-bit compatible thankfully.

Anyways I couldn't find a 64-bit driver for your scanner, just the 32-bit version for Windows 7.

So did it work? Do you remember what driver you used?

sygnus21 Epson may not say 64 bit on the support page, but there is 64 bit support in the INF from the one on that link. Here's a bit more from the INF showing the 64 bit support,

Code:

I agree - they "should" be working based on the info in the file, but..... And epson doesn't list a 64-bit version like they do with their other drivers. Again, I own a few older Epson products myself, and those driver packages specifically state 64-bit support right in the title.

Confirmed the drivers work with Windows 7 x64. I used "epson12204.exe" from Epson's website and my Perfection 2580 scanner scans photos fine.


Cheers,

I have an Epson 2480 Photo using a driver 3.0.4.0 according to properties. It is dated Dec 28 2006 but came on the CD. It runs well on x86 and x64 for me.

You may also find that Vista drivers for your scanner will work under Windows 7.
