    Connect Microtek Scanmaker 4800 to PC w/Windows Vista

    I have a Microtek Scanmaker 4800, Type MRS-1200
    T48U. I believe this unit is designed to function w/o the use of a
    driver and it connects to the PC via Microteck Wizard 5 v5.79
    software.? I now have a new PC and am trying to get it working. This
    software is installed in my both my old and new PC (I have the disk). With
    my old PC a Microteck Scanner icon would light up and direct me to scan my
    hardware to connect the PC up to the scanner. When accomplished the icon
    indicated the
    scanner was available and I could then give directions and operate the
    scanner. With my new computer the icon comes on but scanning my
    hardware will not hook the PC to the scanner???? Questions: Is it true I
    don't need a driver for the Microteck Scanmaker 4800? I have searched all
    over trying to find a driver for the Scanmaker 4800. All that is indicated to
    be available is the Scanmaker software wizard. When I try to download this it
    indicates a
    couple files are in use and terminates the download. This makes sense if
    the necessay software to allow it to function is already installed?

    You will need a driver. The Windows XP driver might work but Microtek do not
    appear to have any Vista drivers.

    Neither VueScan nor Silverfast supports the Scanmaker 4800, so if the XP
    driver does not work you will need a new scanner.

    Install the latest driver from microtek and add
    'ZipLabel.com SM3840 & SM4800 Scanner Driver'
    (http://www.ziplabel.com/sm3840/)

    read about it here
    'SANE - Scanner Access Now Easy' (http://www.sane-project.org/)

    it is working for me in Vista home
