HP Sales told me the same thing, but I don't know if I believe her. She said that my HP Lasarjet 3200 is outdated and will not work
with my new computer, and Vista. I paid $1200.00 for this HP lasar printer 8 years ago and it worked great without any problems. It is
a printer, scanner, copier, & fax. It has been used for a total of about 8 hours and still has the original toner cartridge. We bought it for
business and only used it to print a few invoices. Then 9/11 happened and our business went under, so it was not used again.
8 years later I am unemployed and want to start a new business, so I bought a new computer and the HP will not work. Their is not
a USB connection on my Gateway that will accept the cable from the HP. If I could somehow find an adaptor, I have read in the forums
that there is not a driver for Vista.
Am I to give up and loose hope that I can still use my expensive lasar all-in-one, or is there hope?
I appreciate anything that anyone can share about this situation.

I have an 8 year old scanjet 4470c that is in perfect condition and just realized it is not compatible with my Dell Inspiron 9400 with Vista. I checked HPs site and it appears they still not have a Vista driver for this device...can you confirm, or is there something out there that works? Was thinking of upgrading to Windows 7 but seems it's having the same problem. How much work is involved in having HP produce these drivers? I know they've done it for other devices - why not this one? I'd really like to be able to use my scanner. I t does tend to turn you off HP when they don't keep the drivers up-to-date with OS...mind you, maybe they don't get a lot of heads up when the OS changes...so I'm asking HP - could you please add this driver to your new solutions? Thx

I am absolutely INCENSED at HP for not having drivers for Windows 7 (32 or 64bit) as well as Vista. There is NO excuse for this except that HP wants you to buy NEW equipment! I for one am NEVER going to buy another HP product until the ONES I HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT are supported in the new operating systems. I advise everyone who reads this to do the same.

If you look here , there are tricks and solutions to make the scanner work in Vista/W7 mode . I succeeded to make mine work in WIA : http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Operating-systems-and-software/Vista-compatable-driver-for-HP-scanjet-4...
Good luck !

Have Win XP install disk ? You can download VMware Player http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
and install virtual Windows XP on your W 7 HDD . Easy and harmless to your basic OS ( Vista / Win 7 ) . Worked fine for me anyway .
