Reply linked me to a site for a bzillion fixes thru a site that wants money; I'm cheap; was hoping HP had a fix worked out by now, for nothing. Vista's not that new that there hasn't been time to get adaptions built for all its products. Can't see making a lot of good equipment obsolete, even with the poor economy we're supposed to be in....
Anybody got a really free fix?!

There are no free solutions that I am aware of in getting older HP scanners to work under Vista_much the same scenario when XP came out.Manufacturers hope to sell more new hardware with each new OS release, so most don't write new drivers.
At $39.95 Vuescan is cheaper than buying a new scanner, and highly rated:

I've succeeded in installing my Scanjet 4400C, by means of a trick... on Windows 7 rtm 32bit and now it's perfectly working again
I've posted this 'know-how' here : http://www.fixya.com/support/t1278979-scanner_not_compatible
I think it's the same for Vista 32 bit Regards

Hi I've just re-uploaded this driver http://rapidshare.com/files/284070093/Hewlett-Packard_ScanJet_4400C.zip.html However the most important tricks are : 1) You can use also another XP or win2000 driver from HP site 2) Begin installing HP Precision Scan Pro, after having opened Device Manager. During the installation , you've to look at the driver. As soon as the scanner hp4400c driver is installed, without any conflict (you can retry more and more) you've to stop installation IMMEDIATELY , using Task Manager and reboot , then verify again the driver in Device Manager 3) Install HP Precision scan pro in compatibility with XPSP3 and execute the program (fixing the box in 'properties) in compatibility with XP SP3 . In this way my scanner works perfectly. I've also installed VUESCAN and the device is working well. Donald
Nete: the scanner doesn't work with Windows7 scan software, but only with its software and Vuescan! . I've installed this scanner in three PCs, under Windows7 , with the same results ! Regards
