What scanner is compatible to Windows XP.
I have a Visioneer One Touch 7600 USB scanner and I can't load it and can not find any upgrades to make it compatible.

I went to Visioneer's web page, and see that the 7600 is a "Legacy" device.
Basically, that means that the scanner is out of warrenty, and Visioneer is not planning to create any new drivers or updates.

Have you tried the Windows 2000 driver?
Sometimes this works.

Most "new" scanners will have XP drivers and support.

The following Microsoft link has a list of scanners that have been certified to work with XP.
This is not an all inclusive list, as not all manufactures or models that are XP compatible are listed.

Remove any spaces from the pasted link.
I got there from www.microsoft.com/windows
Click on the Xp link
Click on Windows catalog
Click on hardware
Click on scanners

I recommend that you check the manufactures web site for any scanner that you are looking at to verify XP compatability, and updated drivers.

My scanner didn't work with XP either. I put together an old P100 with 64 MB of ram in it and Windows 98. Now I don't have to worry about the scanner and since it isn't on my XP machine it doesn't take up space as I didn't use the scanner that much. I also put the printer with it and that also frees more power to the XP machine.
