    Where would I find "twain 5" for a Epson 1200u scanner? Epson doesn't have
    them and other sites state W98 compatible twain 5s.

    Using an an Epson 1200u? My scanner wont work without the Epson software on
    the PC and the software doesn't work on Vista.

    There is nothing on their site to make their 1200u Perfecion scanner work
    with Vista. See:

    http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...atform=Windows

    There are no email addresses there I could find to contact anyone about a
    driver not on their website. How can I get my scanner and it's software to
    work on Vista Home Premium?

    Of course! And there are no drivers I can find to make my Epson or HP
    printing software work with Vista.

    How can I get that information? Google didn't bring up any MS sites that
    covered my scanner or HP printing software.

    That's most likely because they work for MS in some capacity or they assume
    everyone is as computer literate as they are. They can't imagine that anyone
    is new to PCs as they once were. After all, they didn't exit their mother's
    body with a PC in their hands.

    They are clueless as to what outside means.... they're in their little boxes
    oblivious to the fact others may view Vista a lot differently than they do.

    The warning should at least state that "This operating system my necessitate
    you purchase all new peripherals." It really pisses me off that I have to
    purchase a new scanner and printer to use with this PC because there are no
    fixes/drivers for the Epson 1200u scanner, AdobePhotoDeluxe software or for
    the photo printing feature of my my HP printer. All these things worked
    perfectly on the old XP machine. And some people here think we shouldn't
    mind having to pull out another few hundred bucks and just
    throw out or give away perfectly good printers and scanners.

    Like Millennium., if I have the name right (one before XP), I think Vista is
    a joke and wont be around long unless people are forced to buy it or switch
    to some other operating system.
