Vista drivers for Epson Perfection 1650 photo scanner
I have a not too old Epson Perfection 1650 photo scanner for which neither
Epson nor Vista have a VISTA compatible "Twain" driver. The closest thing I
can find on the Epson site is a fix for a Perfection 1670 and it doesn't
work with my scanner. Any suggestions on who to find a TWAIN file or other
fix for this incompatibility issue?

Thanks
Capt Brigg

Install Scanner TWAIN drivers on Windows Vista - Here are the
instructions I found
that worked for me:

"Yes, TWAIN will work in Vista.

(Note: the following are not product endorsements; just speaking from
direct experience
with a couple scanners)

Although the steps differ from vendor to vendor (and often model to
model for the
same vendor), here's what I do to install the drivers for an Epson
Perfection 1200 Photo:

Download the latest XP driver package from Epson's website. Run the
self-extracting
exe (uncheck "When Done Unzipping Run: Setup.exe").

Go to the new directory, open the properties dialog for Setup.exe and
select XP SP2
compatibility (this isn't necessary for all installation packages,
but
it's necessary for this particular package)

Run Setup.exe

Connect a USB cable and turn on the device

Allow Vista to "Locate and install driver software..."

Select "Install Anyway" when it warns of an unsigned driver (this is
perfectly safe
in this case because it uses the in-box usbscan.sys driver)

So, in general, follow the same steps you would on XP.

If the setup program fails, try enabling the XP SP2 compatibility
(through the properties
dialog for the Setup.exe file).

If the device is based on an in-box driver like usbscan.sys, it's safe
to install
in spite of installation warnings.
