I've tried very hard to get Epson GT-7000 USB scanner-driver for W2K but without success. Has anybody an idea to force this particular scanner to work with W2K properly?

I sympathize with you, ez. My Canon FB-620U USB scanner isn't working either under Win2K. And Canon tech support isn't of much help.

Actually, this is all caused by the fact that USB wasn't supported under NT4 - while Win98 did support it properly. However, because Win2K requires either NT4 or WDM drivers, we're stuck waiting for the manufacturers to give us new, Win2K-compliant USB drivers.

You might try Epson's UK site for a W2K driver. I got a driver for my GT-7000 SCSI scanner there, but can't recall if there was one for USB or not. Sorry I can't give you the URL, as I'm at work right now and don't have the info with me. You should be able to get it from the main site at www.epson.com

Hi Randy,
thanks for that hint. As I hit the page a couple of days ago the new W2K drivers haven't been there.

BTW GT-7000 (Twain34.zip) supports both, SCSI and USB.

Drivers can be downloaded under http://www.epson.co.uk/support/download/win2000/scan.htm
