    Change Scanner Name.


    I have an old Hewlett-Packard HP ScanJet G2710 Scanner.

    I installed it and it works fine, EXCEPT, the name shown in Control Panel => Devices & Printers is hp scanjet.

    I have thoroughly looked through the Registry and I can NOT find the entry hp scanjet. I would like it to show as HP ScanJet G2710.

    Change Scanner Name.-scanjet_4.png
    Change Scanner Name.-scanjet_1.png

    Change Scanner Name.-scanjet_2.pngChange Scanner Name.-scanjet_3.png

    I have even looked at the installation files that I used to install it . . .

    • DPInst - XML Document
    • hpusbscn.sys - System File
    • hpxp3800 - Setup Information

    . . . and they appear to have the FULL correct Model Name, which is what I think needs changing somehow.

    Here is an Exported REG File . . .

    Code:
    
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\HP Scanjet G2710]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\HP Scanjet G2710\DeviceInstances]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\HP Scanjet G2710\DeviceInstances\CN78EA52QS0530]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\HP Scanjet G2710\DeviceInstances\CN78EA52QS0530\Functions]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\HP Scanjet G2710\DeviceInstances\CN78EA52QS0530\Functions\Scan]
    "ImagingClassIndex"="0000"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\HP Scanjet G2710\DeviceInstances\CN78EA52QS0530\Strings]
    "FriendlyName"="0,HP Scanjet G2710"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\hpg]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\hpg\c32]
    "hpg_PNPFinishedEvent_99"=""
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Hewlett-Packard\hpg\c32\hpg]
    "_PnPFinishedEvent"="1"
    "hpg3800"="1"

    . . . and as you see, it has the correct HP ScanJet G2710, so it is the Model Label [ Name ] that needs to be changed in Devices.

    Thanks in advance.

    I did actually try the FIRST one but there is NO option in the Scanner like there is for the right-click and Printer Properties => General Tab.

    Presumably your conclusion is that whilst the Friendly name is reflected in 2 places, it's not that as viewed in your first screenshot- which rather begs the question as to what defines the name shown there...

    Exactly. When I scoured the Whole Registry there were numerous [ close on a hundred ] entries, but NONE with the actual shown description with the various criteria that I used for the search.

    I also installed my HP Printer, and that is absolutely fine!

    I think I have the original Disk somewhere which I will probably try, but I really ONLY want the Basic Drivers so I will see if there is an option for a Custom Install. The strange thing is, I used the exact same Drivers for Win Vista & Win 7 and they were absolutely fine!

    Purely out of curiosity, try making the friendly name
    HP ScanjetG2710


    (omit the space- or other variations) and see what is shown then.

    That might prove that what is displayed there does NOT depend on the friendly name - or maybe reveal something different.

    Thanks, but it didn't make a difference!

    This is the one I changed on the bottom-right . . .

    - which would only suggest that's not what's used to create that.. which was a reasonable guess anyway.

    Hello @dalchina,

    I just tried with the Original Disk and got the SAME results as far as the Scanner Name is concerned, so it was obviously HP being lazy when they Packaged it.

    I even checked for an Updated Driver once I had finished the installation and got the usual message saying that the LATEST Driver was already installed, which if fair enough since I think this was back in 2007.

    I have looked on the Internet [ That's where I got the previous one from ] and I couldn't find a newer one.

    You would think though, that it would be simple to make a Device Label / Name change.

    Oh well, I will have to live with it!

    Thanks for your help and time on this, it is appreciated.

    The puzzle remains- how is it derived? Guess we'll never know..
