Hi everyone!

I had to change to Windows XP x64 but now, it seems that my Scanner (EPSON Perfection 610) is incompatible with the OS. I looked everywhere, even in the EPSON website and there's no indication of a driver for Win XP x64 for my epson.

Even so, is there a way to install a "generic" scanner driver for it? I really need to get this scanner to work.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the link. Correct me if I'm wrong but VueScan is a driver + tool, or is it just the tool?

Re: Can't Install EPSON Perfection 610 Scanner in Win XP x64

Hi again

Last night I made it work. Before using the VueScan, I was wondering if I could use a Win XP 32 Virtual Machine that I have in VirtualBox to use the scanner. Here's what I did:

1. With the VM off, I went to its configuration dialog.

2. Under the "USB" section, I added a filter for the device (the device is "listed" in the host, even if it's not properly installed).

3. VirtualBox made some installing and then I restarted the host (physical) machine.

4. Started the VM and it detected the new hardware, which I installed using the regular drivers I always used.

I tested it and works perfectly even when in the host the scanner is not installed; I think my *** is safe for now :p
