    Hi there ... Your scanner is very old that is the problem ... Try Vuescan it is not free but has a 30 Day Trial

    i don't understand why on the win 7 ultimate is working and on win 7 home isn't being recognized not even from the devise manager,but is installing

    why?

    the Vuescan is noisy and as i need to scan i cant print or save the scan with watermarks,

    on the HP site says that the scanjet 2200c is not supported by win 7 and for win 8 ok,this is a shame so what should i do throw it away?

    AND WHY ON WIN 7 ULTIMATE WORK AND ON HOME PREMIUM NO?

    can someone explain?



    i bought this scanner few years ago as i worked well with my win 7 ultimate,so why with the home premium no?

    Hi there ... Like you i have no idea why it works on Windows Ultimate and not on Home .. I am surprised really that it works at all with any Windows 7 OS .. Saying that you have Windows Ultimate so why not just use it on that OS .. Not ideal i know but at least it works ..

    because i ghanghed pc,i cant connect the other pc as well,as i do not have room for 2 pc;s

    yes thats it on the win 7 ultimate it workes but on home premium no,

    this is what is directed from the HP site

    VueScan is an application for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux that is compatible with over 2300 scanners from 35 scanner manufacturers. If your scanner is no longer supported by your operating system, or you want more advanced features, download VueScan today.

    but with money,so you have the original sw then you cant install it,and the other option is to pay.
