    Have you checked whether your scanner driver is available for 64 bit Win?

    Hi Lee,

    I had to buy a new card. Fortunately I also built a new computer at
    the same time, because it requires a new bus as well. I bought an
    Adaptec 29320 LPE from Amazon.com (best price). It is a PCI-E card,
    so it would not have worked in my old machine. Not only does it work
    in Windows 7, but Windows update has already updated the driver once.
    I also flashed the BIOS to the latest version.

    I would not go to all this trouble for a scanner, unless it was a
    particularly fancy one. I had a new tape drive, and I *had* to have
    SCSI.

    Good luck! :)

    Unfortunately we are all reminded all too frequently that hardware is
    all about software drivers. The hardware may be fine, but without the
    appropriate software drivers it is worthless.

    BTW, these new Canon LED scanners are really great and they only cost
    about $100.00.

    Good luck! :)

    I know of a program that will give the SCSI drivers and allow you to use your scanner. It works with Vista Ultimate 64 bit and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit as well. When I went to Vista 64 bit I could not find drivers for my scannner. The name of the program is VueScan by hamrick the website is hamrick.com. They have a 30 day trial for the program and it cost 39.95 for a standard edition and 79.95 for the professional edition. The program is worth it especially if you have an older scanner. Try this to see if it works.
    Good Luck.

    Windows 7 SCSI cards - VueScan

    VueScan is an application program and does not support a SCSI driver for the SCSI Adapter. It supports a scanner.
