I am encouraged that someone has successfully gotten the Epson Perfection 2480 Photo scanner to work in Vista, but I have not had that same success.
I have downloaded all the drivers
suggested by one or another person, and they don't work.
The software seems to install, but the computer simply does not recognize the presence of the scanner
Therefore, no program can use the scanner.
I've tried the drivers epson12204.exe / epson316633eu.exe, and others, but the final result is always that a required line is missing in the INF, and the list of available scanners does not show the EpsonPerfection 2480.
I've only just discovered this forum, though I've been working on this problem for a year.
Thanks to anyone who responds.
