I got a new computer and went to install my S20, and for some reason my CD has vanished. Are there any websites where I can install the software so I can scan (so I don't have to bug a friend for it...and have to wait a few days for it to arrive). Thanks...

Oke guys,

Please help me with my problem. Since I installed XP on my system the S20 is not working. I've download the new drivers etc. but what I try, the result is nil. Is there somebody who can tell me stap by stap what to do to get it working?

My workaround is close the system and start from another drive with W98 and that works on the same PC so the hardware isn't a problem.

Kind Regards, George Polfliet

I have XP on my new computer, maybe we're having the same problem. It just keeps saying that there is a problem communicating with it.

I'm running XP and had no problems installing my old HP 5P flatbed which is about 6 years old. I would think the S20 should be a snap to setup. Did you download the XP drivers from the HP website? You'll probably need it. Also the Photosmart Scanning Software for XP as well.

Justin/George,

I had the same problem when I updated my PC to one with Windows XP. The old scanner software wouldn't work with XP. I got a mate with "cable" to download the software and drivers for the S10/20 from the HP website for me, installed it on the computer and it worked fine.

Did you download the massive file? If not I have it on CD and can send a copy if required. Another problem I had was a pin broke in the SCSI cable ( I have an S10 which works on SCSI) and that caused the same warning "Cannot Communicate with scanner". Check the cables too.

There was alot of help available via the HP forums too. Alot of people with S10/20 scanners were having problems with Win XP installations.

If you need any more assistance e-mail me.

If someone could link me to the drivers I need, I could probably do this. Thanks.

Don't worry about that warning message. It comes up with a lot of software and XP. I think in the HP install instructions, it says to hit OK and ignore the message. I bought a new computer with XP 2 weeks ago. My S20 works fine with no problems with XP.
