Compatible Flatbed Scanner

Can anyone recommend a cheap flatbed scanner?
One that works in Windows 7 64 bit.
My ole Visioneer 8700 is a paper weight now that I've got Windows 7.

Thx,
CT

Not sure if this would be cheaper or better than buying a new scanner but yours is supported and it will work with Windows 7

Yeah.. I see my scanner listed, but it won't work in Win7 64 bit. I get the dredded error when I launch VueScan:

I've even tried the XP driver just to see what happens. The scanner's program manager is running, but cannot detect the scanner.

Thanks Adrian!
How fast is the HP? Does it take a while to warm up? I hated having to wait a full 60 seconds using that old Visioneer.

Rep given Zahl. I'm happy to say thanks to seeing this post my Umax 3400 is working under 7.
You saved me at least 90 dollars as I was about to buy an all in one photosmart 4780.

I bet the manufacturers are quite teed off about this program. haha.

I had to close the program manager as you call it. Unplug the usb cable on my scanner, plug it back in. The driver from the vuescan installation loaded as UMAX 3400 and when I opened the program everything was good to go.

Thanks, I'm glad it helped you out and that you like it. This has kept my ten year old Epson 1200u going strong since Vista hit. But you're right, I'm sure they don't like it one bit lol

CTerrian, sometimes you have to unplug the scanner, reboot, and plug it in again -make sure the scanner is on when you plug it in. Once it picks up you don't have to do it again. Sorry it didn't work

My older CanoScan N1220U was not compatible with Windows 7. I even tried buying a new scanner but it didn't have a driver for Windows 7 either. The guy at the store said if it was VISTA compatible it would work. It didn't.

I kept looking on the 'net and happened across this forum. Thanks for the link to VueScan. I tried it and liked it. And bought it!

My scanner's back in business!

I got one of these running on Win 7 64 bit. I went to the Epson web site for the software.

Newegg.com - EPSON Perfection V300 Photo B11B193081 4800 dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner - Scanner - Flatbed Scanners

It uses LEDs for light source and no waiting for warm up.
