As I said, HP's Site is no help!
I've been to that page before, and the only thing to download is PaperPort patch.

What I need is Driver and Scanning software in English!

YOu could only get the driver from HP,  they do not have the scanning software to DL... The only option that you have is to email or call HP and ask them to send you new software... This will probably cost you, but there is no other place for you to get it...

So what you're saying is that I can't download this, instead I should order it from HP?

Well, I tought maybe there is someone out there who is ready to send me the software I need.

Or...

If you have the serial # of the scanner you can order DeskScan 2.8 software from the HP site...It will only cost you 19.95 plus 2.95 shipping(assuming your in the US.) This software is not obtainable for free download(I'm going through the same thing).

sgenther!!! Isn't that what I just said in my answer?  Or am I just stupid?

I meant IS SOMEONE READY TO SEND ME THIS SOFTWARE!?
I know all about HP ordering... and I also know that someone somewhere surely must have it... it only a question of a good will to help... and finally, earn 120 points...

And MasseyM, Yes, you're right, that's exactly what you said... meaning you're not stupid...

> IS SOMEONE READY TO SEND ME THIS SOFTWARE!?

I would if I could, but that would violate the
"one-user" license which comes with the software,
and that would be illegal.  Given that you have
the German version, contact HP, and offer to
exchange that version for the English version,
and see if they will waive their charges.

Your email box is not big enough to handle the entire file (14MB).  So I am breaking it down and sending it to you pieces.  Please confirm when you receive a part so I can send the next.  There are 11 ZIP files about 1.3MB each.

I'm having trouble downloading the first three files that came, I had to download some of them for two or three times, until they were clean, without any Zip errors.

I'm gonna mail you the other places where you can send this big thing...

I will contact you then...

thanx for the effort, man!!!!!    :)

Yes, I have them all, somehow, and don't ask how, :), one of my friends found this piece of software at his home. He used to own HP 6100C, and I thought he might have the software somewhere. And, in the end, he found it.

So, although I know that there are two more files to send, I thought I should let you know so you don't waste your time on sending these files. THANX!!!!!!!!!!!!!
