HP PhotoSmart C5101A - S20 vista driver

HP PhotoSmart C5101A S20 is discontinued, but this is an excellent photo and film scanner with superb quality (much better quality then flatbed scanners).

This is the only element in my system that Vista upgrade advisor is not sure about, and this stops me from Vista upgrade.

As I remember, S20 was discontinued even before Windows XP came out and HP was very nice to provide Windows XP driver for this wonderful scanner.

Will there be a Vista driver for S20?

Did you ever get a response to this question? I have the same one.

I also have a HP PhotoSmart S20 and would LOVE to have a Vista driver for it.

Re: HP PhotoSmart C5101A - S20 vista driver

I just upgraded to Windows 7 and installed the HP Photosmart S20 with minimal difficulty. I downloaded the ps803mu.exe file (the one updated for USB). It did not recognize the driver. I did a manual search for the driver on my hard drive and selected the HP PhotoSmart 5200 driver (the 5100 driver did not work).

I'm pretty sure I did something similar with Vista to make it work as well.

Bottom line... it still works!

Re: HP PhotoSmart C5101A - S20 vista driver

Just got my used S20 running nicely under Windows 7 using the Virtual XP mode. (This sadly does need Win7 professional, enterprise or ultimate.) I used the latest XP driver for the S20 from HP.

A few pointers
