Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

I am planning to buy a new computer with Windows 7 and would like to use my scanner (SJ3500c).  According to the Win 7 compatability information I received from Microsoft, the scanner is compatable but the driver is not.  Will HP be introducing a new driver in the near future?

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

WalterC,

 

It appears that the 3500c should be available via Windows Update (link).

Please let us know if the Windows Update works.

 

 

I work for HP, but these words are mine alone.

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

scandroid, that link that you gave doesn't seem to exist any more.

 

Both of these links lead me to think that there's no Windows 7 support for ScanJet 3500c.

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

I checked - all the updates for Scanjets that were scheduled for win7 support have been finished and posted.  I'm sorry to confirm your 3500c is not supported by hp on Win7.

I just connected the scanner to a computer with an USB cable when the scanner was powered up. Then Windows 7 64bit installed a driver and it worked automatically. The driver has limited settings, but the scanner can be used anyway.

 

I tested Windows Live Photo Gallery for scanning and it seems to have possibility to save different scan settings and directories where to save files.

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

Yes, I have the scanner working in limited mode too. I was hoping that HP software would support the driver and give me more functionality like I had in XP. I have downloaded a trial copy of VueScan and that seems to be communicating with the scanner with no problems. As long as it does multi-page PDF from the sheet feeder, I will probably buy that software.

 

Also, this scanner was a ScanJet 4700. I was just looking for software soluction from HP, but looks like I'm out of luck there.

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

Today I discovered that installing col3927 made it possible to use my 3500c scanner under windows 7 home premium.

The installed drivers are

...system32\drivers\usbscan.sys

...system32\ hp3500co.dll,  hpgt35.dll,  hpxp3500.dll

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

Vue-scan seems to handle all my needs with the scanner.

Re: Scanjet 3500c and Windows 7

I had to unplug the scanner, uninstall all HP software and drivers, then plug scanner back in and let Windows 7 install it. I can only scan in Photoshop though but it lets you adjust the DPI and colour settings.
