Is there a new driver for the HP ScanJet 3400C. It is a good sanncer and have used it through all the upgrades. Surely HP will have a new driver that will work on Windows 7??????????????????

HP hasn't released drivers for 3400c since XP. An alternative that some use is the highly rated VueScan. Although not free, it is less than a new scanner.Try the free trial to test if it will work with your model:

Hey I just downloaded this driver
and ran it under XP combatibily mode, works fine!

My pc is a new Dell windows 7 64 bit and the 3400c is working fine.
The secret is to download (for free) and install microsoft's "XP Virtual machine"
it's like having an XP machine INSIDE your win 7 machine.
The installation requires 2 downloads and works smoothly.
Once in the XP environment the XP version of the 3400c software works fine.
Just remember to (at the top of the screen) use the USB menu to "attach" the scanner to the XP subsystem (which basically rerouts that USB address to the XP environment)
So far the only real bug is the windows backup will FAIL if the virtual machine has been started, even if it is stopped the backup will fail with a message about VCC or similar. If you start the virtual machine you need to do a total reboot of your pc to allow windows (win 7) backup&system image to function. But, as backup on my pc runs Tue at 1AM - I just reboot Monday night and not start the virtual machine and backup is happy.
