Here is another way. In device manager if the device is reconized. Right click on the device>select properties>details tab> drop down menu>hardware id. Copy and Paste the hardware id string. Possibly we can find a suitable driver for it. Please list 32 or 64 bit Seven. You could also try the XP driver in compatibility mode XP Compatibility Mode Thanks Fabe

Hi, check in your device manager to see if you have any yellow triangles at imaging devices
or anything else.
