Windows 7 64 bit

Hi, I had the same problem with my 7 yr old Epson scanner - no drivers, no support for 64 bit. XP compatibility mode does not work either. I solved this by downloading (and buying) VueScan. They let you try it out for free. I am happy with it.

Re: Genius ColorPage HR7X Slim scanner

I think I shall have to buy new scanner.

I have tried all your suggestions and various other software progams which say that they can be used with scanners which were bought for XP - without success.

Thanks for all your help.

Just as an update. I have my scanner working now. I downloaded the drivers for Vista and ran in XP Compatibility Mode.

Thanks again for all your help.
