I used to have the CD, but ummm, don't have it any more, anyway, now we only have a machine running windows Vista, as well as two Linux machines, anyway...We've been looking around for awhile and haven't really had much luck, would the XP drivers work on Vista as well?

Thanks...

XP drivers probably won't work in Vista because of it's different structure. That's why there are drivers specially made for Vista.

Have you checked the manufacturer's website?

Yeah, just rechecked it again, just in case I might have missed something...And, nope...Guess there isn't a driver for Vista then...I wonder if there's a work around, or another driver that would function as well...Well, I'm sure I'll probably get in trouble from my wife for deleting windows XP in favor of Zenwalk linux, now, HA HA HA HA...

Anyway, thanks...

Hmm...

Is the device currently attached to the computer or no?

It was, then after it wouldn't work, I tried it on Zenwalk just to see if xsane would load it, which it didn't either...
