[filmscanners] Re: SS4000 & SCSI under Vista


My plan is to keep a 32-bit machine around for the SS120 and My old
Epson Stylus Photo 1200.  Then upgrade my main computer to XP 64.  An
Epson tech told me last year that that he could send me the 64-bit
drivers for my Epson 1640 scanner, however, I didn't ask him to do that
and I still do not see a 64-bit driver, twain or otherwise, on Epson's
website - that seems to support what you're saying about 32-bit Twain
drivers working on 64-bit systems.  Epson does have 64-bit drivers for
my R2400.

After I upgrade to a 64-bit OS, I'll try installing the Polaroid drivers
on the new system.
