Windows 7: Looking for Driver Scanjet 3300c for Windows 7-32bit!

Looking for Driver Scanjet 3300c for Windows 7-32bit!


I am LUCK, using Laptop Dell N5010 with Windows 7-32bit. I have an old scanner called HP Scanjet 3300c. I can't make it work with Windows 7-32bit. I feel that Windows 7 can't support it. If so, what must I do to get it worked in Windows 7-32bit?

Sorry for being unaware of my knowledge relating to the above problems.

Thanks a lot and best wishes!

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

My best regards,

It seems that HP only supports your scanner up through XP.

HP Scanjet 3300c Scanner series*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

You could try installing the 32-bit XP driver and then see if it will work in compatibility mode. Otherwise you might have no choice but to upgrade the scanner.

Different software as a solution


I found that my trusty 4570c was not supported either.
Solution: Use Vuescan. This program has a driver for most HP scanners that will do the job. The downside to this is that you will pay $40 for the program.
I found in the end that a new Epson Perfection V33 scanner was actually cheaper than any other solution and went with it and its bundled software.

HP has made it quite clear that they have moved away from anything before XP for drivers. Thus many pieces of equipment are rendered unusable without buying software.

Hope this points you in the best direction for your situation.
