[filmscanners] RE: SS4000 & SCSI under Vista



> Epson does have 64-bit drivers for my R2400.

Yes, they have furnished 64 bit drivers for some of the newest printers; but
they have not done so for their scanners yet because of the lack of any
sizable demand.  When they do - if they do, the 64 bit scanner drivers will
be for the new models of scanner and will be WMA drivers not Twain.
