  1. Hi, I have long running driver installation problems in vista home premium. My latest issue is with epson scan. I have the right version and have spoken at length with epson. The installation programme does not install the driver. When I point vista to the folder with the driver it doesn't install it saying it cannot find the specified driver. I have had problems with usb drives as well. I have tried under the admin account. Can I reinstall vista without losing all my apps? Or is there something else I should try?
    Thanks in advance, Matt.

    Hi, I have the R300 too which works fine. The problem I have is with the dx3850 which is a "multi function" device. The printing side is fine but the scanning side is not. Whatever I do I can't get the scan driver to load. Also when I hit the epson scan application it will not run. I have loaded it all on an XP machine and all is well. I am hoping that when the vista service pack comes out things might be sorted. In the meantime if any one has any ideas...

    vista drivers for epson scan

    James, unfortunately this is one of the products for which they have produced Vista drivers which I downloaded but do not work (for me).

    Files that help describe the problem


    the problem report gives the option to view the drivers that didnt load (in temp folder) with an error log. epson started off with loads of suggestions and ran out of options so they fobbed me off saying it works fine for them in vista. call me deluded but im still holding out hope of being able find a way of loading the drivers.
