HP Scanner conflicts with Win 98

The software that came with my Scanjet 5P HP Scanner was for Win 95 and now on Win 98 conflicts with my DVD CD Rom.  Is there anyway to get the Win 98 drivers without having to buy
an expensive upgrade package?

Go to this site and you will find Version 3 software and, equally important, the ASPI layer fix:

I use a 5P with Windows 98.  Although HP doesn't mention Windows 98, the software at this location works fine.  When you read "more info" on the ASPI layer fix you will see that is should fix your problem.

Good luck!

Klausmeyers, in what manner does the HP conflict with your DVD drive?

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
