    The message usually means that windows does not see the scanner, or the
    scanner uses an OEM driver instead of built in windows support. There may
    also be a problem that is caused by the scanner driver not being installed.
    A possibility is to use the trial version of Viewscan from Hamrick Software
    to see if the scanner works with it.

    Works fine for me on my Vista 32 bit machine, but not on x64. Which
    version have you got?

    Hi.... I am experiencing the same thing. Only scanner that doesn't work after
    I install the newest service pack from Vista. Mine is Home basic. Before this
    morning update everything was working just fine :(
