Scanner Drivers for a Fujitsu S500 scanner

I have a Fujitsu S500 scanner and I am having trouble getting it to work on a computer that is running windows vista. I download the new vista drivers from the Fujitsu site and install them but the scanner does not show up under scanner in the control panel. I installed the scanner on a computer that is running windows xp and it works fine so I know that the scanner is working.

any thought on how to make this scanner work on the vista machine?

First, you haven't said whether you're on 32-bit or 64-bit Vista. 64-bit is not supported, as you can see here:
http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/software/s500.html

If you're on 32-bit, I'm guessing you installed the update for ScanSnap Manager package from here:
http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/drivers/s500.html#vista

If you did, I suggest instead installing the full ScanSnap Manager package, which you can get from Fujitsu by completing the form at:
https://www.pfu.fujitsu.com/registration/ss-setpg/en/no-check01.html

Uninstall the ScanSnap Manager and install the full package from the download link that Fujitsu sends after you complete the form. Regards, Joe

if the scanner works and you have installed the right driver, one possibility is that you are using usb-hub for the connection, use direct usb cable connection, don't use usb-hub and give a try!

Joe and cashewnut,

thank yoo both for your help, I appreciate it. Joe, I re-downloaded the drivers and the issue still there. I then figured out what was going on... Vista was blocking the scanner drivers because there are not signed.

Thanks again and I appreciate your help.
