Probably not. I have a 1650 and will keep using it on XP SP2 until
Vista is stable enough that I can use it as my main machine. Only then
will I shop around and buy a new scanner. One thought, though. Have
you looked into Vuescan by Hamrick Software?
It's not cheap, but it's a great piece of software, says it runs on
Vista, and supports ~700 scanners, most w/o Windows drivers. Yours is
on the list. I use Vuescan with my old SCSI film/slide scanner, and
I've used it with my 1650. Well worth thr $$ IMNSHO.
