Windows 7: No scanner detected and that a I need a WIA cable

Windows Ulitmate 32bit
No scanner detected and that a I need a WIA cable

I upgraded to Windows Ulimute 7. MY Epson pinter bombed out. I bought a HP Officejet j4580 all in one. At first the OS was not compatible. I downloaded the compatable driver and installed it. It prints like a dream now. The scanner is the problem. At first it did scan, but then it bombed out. It gives me a message of no scanner detected and that a I need a WIA cable. Where on earth to I get that cable?????? I worked ar first, now nada, nothing.

Please advice

Thank you

Demurin, ZAR

WIA drivers, yes.

I hope that better drivers exist. (TWAIN, perhaps.) The WIA drivers I've seen have had limited features.
