: Is there a driver for the Epson Perfection 1200U scanner for Windows XP

Go to Epson's driver download website:

Download the TWAIN driver for Windows 2000:
EPSON Twain v4.10EA for Windows 2000/ME

Be sure you follow the instructions. I had previously installed the driver from the CD that came with my scanner, so XP kept telling me I had an imaging device called Epson Perfection 1200, but it wouldn't let me scan with it.

I downloaded the Windows 2000 driver above, double-clicked, and noted the location where it installed.

I went to Device Manager in XP and Uninstalled the Epson Perfection 1200. I unplugged the scanner's USB cable, re-booted my PC, plugged the USB cable back in, and when the New Hardware Found dialog box came up, I browsed to the driver's location.

In my case, I could NOT get Epson PrestoManager to work in XP. So I used Paint Shop Pro to scan my images. I clicked on File > Import > TWAIN > Acquire and that started up the Epson TWAIN driver 4.1 that I had just installed.

Good luck.
