    Win 7 64bit Driver for Epson Expression 636 Scanner
    « on: February 11, 2013, 12:21:11 PM »
    I've had the 636 for a number of years now and it has always worked flawlessly for me. I recently got a new computer that has Win 7 64bit as the OS along with the Adaptec 29320LPE SCSI card to connect the scanner to. I can't seem to find a driver or application that will allow me to use the 636 on this new computer. When the computer boots, it does see the SCSI card and the scanner. I couldn't find anything on the Epson site that gave me the impression this was still supported.
    Hoping someone will have some ideas on what I can do. Thx, Bob

    Since they haven't written Win7 drivers...and probably will not your best bet would be to try the Vista drivers and see...they have to be the 64bit drivers though...

    Worst case scenario you'll be shopping for a new printer...

    PS...do you have a Shelby ? ?

    Epson Expression 636 Scanner; most recent drivers are for Windows 2000.

    Q:  Does Epson have Microsoft Vista 64-bit drivers available for my scanner?
    A:  Currently, we do not have Microsoft Vista 64-bit drivers available for your scanner. However, you may be able to use the VueScan software from Hamrick; it supports Microsoft Vista 64-bit. Please visit the Hamrick web site for more information.

    Hamrick software is not free.
