    WIA and Twain Drivers

    Digital Imaging Standard lits my scanner as both WIA and Twain (Win XP
    install) When I ran the adviser it said the scanner would not work in Vista.
    Could this be because of the WIA drivers and would Vista recognise just the
    twain drivers. I have my copy of Vista ready to install but don't want to
    give up this scanner because of the great copies of photos that it makes. Any
    suggestions ?

    Mustek Bear Paw 2400 TA Plus scanner.

    Thanks

    I've got a Canon 8400F scanner. Canon has a Vista driver for Vista that is a
    twain driver only). Vista has "Windows Fax and Scan" which REFUSES TO
    RECOGNIZE my computer having a scanner but all my other programs do
    recognize it. Vista's Control Panel ->Hardware and Sound ->Scanners and
    Cameras recognizes the scanner and passes the scanner test. After digging
    and querying MS and Canon I finally got the answer. Vista's "Windows Fax and
    Scan" utilizes a scanner's WIA interface, not twain. Sometimes Vista sucks!
    In the end this isn't such a big deal to me but it may be to you.
