    Hi Steve,
    I have the Epson Perfection 1260 Scanner. I tried your suggestion installing the 2400 drivers, they installed, but the scanner will not run... Any other suggestions? I am running windows 10
    Thank you much.

    Did you do a full PC restart and check the scanner cable is OK? Try different scanners if the TWAINUI dialogue offers any options. Does the scanner work on other PCs to check if there is a scanner fault? There is third party scanning software you can try / buy like this VueScan Scanner Software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux

    Yes to your questions... When I'm installing the software the twain part error's out. All the rest of the software installs, but the twain device...

    Worked perfectly,
    • Installed 2400 series driver (when it asked what model I had I also picked, 1270 and 4180 since these had the Slide scanner interface I thought it might add a few extra drivers)
    • Restarted PC
    • Needed to use Device manager 'Updated driver'
    • Assign 2400 driver. (See attached image)
    • Be sure scanner is powered on so it appears in device manager.


    Tested the Slide scanner attachment, I used PRO mode and it was discovered.
    I had to use the plastic blackout slide holder (for masking the slide) to find the slide though.

    Epson 1200 scanner now working! Very pleased.


    I had searched for two days to find a way to make my old 1200 Epson scanner work again after I had a new computer running Windows 7. I contacted Epson in the UK who said it was no longer compatible. Thanks so much!

    I've been experimenting with Windows 10 using a VM (VirtualBox) before upgrading. One challenge has been to see if I could get my old 1999 Epson Perfection 1200 scanner working in Windows 10 since Epson do not provide any 64 bit drivers.


    I discovered you can use the Epson 64 bit drivers for the Perfection 2400 and they work fine with the Perfection 1200. The Epson Scan program is fully functional for normal reflective scans and film scanning (if you have the attachment). The built in Windows scan program also works. This fix also works in Windows 8.


    Here is how to do it:



    • Download and install the Perfection 2400U drivers from Epson USA, version 3.04A Support | Epson US
    • Connect and turn on your scanner
    • Run Device Manager
    • The Perfection 1200U will be shown under under Other Devices
    • Select Update Driver
    • Choose 'Browse my computer for driver software"
    • Choose 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
    • UNCHECK the 'Show compatible hardware'
    • Click on 'Epson' in the Manufacturer box, and the scroll down through model until you find "Epson Perfection 2400', and choose that, and press Next
    • Ignore the 'Update Driver warning - choose 'Yes'; to continue to install.
    • The Perfection 2400 will now be shown in Device Manager. Note that the Perfection 1200 will still be shown under Devices & Printers
    • Run Epson Scan and test the scanner. You may need to log out and log in again for program to work

    I'm pleased my fix works for you. I've found every few months that Windows 10 decides not to recognise the old scanner so you may need to reinstall the drivers I recommended.
