    Default epson perfection 2450 photo scanner

    does anyone know of a third party driver for windows 8 that will work with the Epson Perfection 2450 Photo scanner. Epson does not have a driver for this scanner.

    It appears the Win 7 drivers (32 Bit) are the newest available. Did you install Win 8 32 Bit or Win 8 64 Bit? If you installed the 64 Bit it appears there are no 64 Bit drivers for this device. If you installed the Win 8 32 Bit, you could try the 32 Bit Win 7 drivers.

    I purchased a new computer and it is 64 bit. according to Epson they are not planning on supporting the 64 bit, they suggested I look for a third party driver.

    thanks for your response and suggestion.

    You will have to find 64 Bit drivers. Device drivers have to be the same "bitness" as the OS. This is a rather old device, you might be out of luck. The first drivers I see listed are for Win NT V4 and Win 95. That is very old, and all drivers shown are 32 Bit. I will be shocked if you find anything for this device.

    A new printer/scanner might be worth the couple bucks they cost & very timely, too. In this instance, would be my advice, recommendation.

    Carlyne,

    There may be ways to speed that old machine up but, it may, also, be slowly telling you it is time to retire a machine running a 20 year old OS. Just saying...

    Cheers,

    I think it is probably time to retire the machine. it maxed out at 512 ram, new motherboard a few years back.....just slowly dying. I don't want to buy a new printer/scanner as I have an Epson stylus pro 3880 printer as well as an Epson Photo R200...both working great and are compatible with new computer. I also have a really old HP Laser Jet 4 plus......which is still working great even tho it is as old as dirt. and it also runs on the new 64 bit system. I will just use the scanner with the old computer until one or both finally dies. thanks for the responses/suggestions.

    You're welcome, my pleasure. And now what w/ a bit more info from you I have a greater understanding of your complete situation. Yes, time will come but, for now the need to scan something likely is not all that frequent.

    Cheers,

    Just scanning old family photos, hopefully I can get them all scanned before the old computer dies. who knows, it might live for another few years, it is just like me......I seem to get slower as I age
