    I did try your procedure, but I can not get a "Update the Driver" option. It only shows an option to delete the device.Attachment 235395

    If I delete it, and then reconnect, Windows runs through an automatic set up, indicates success, but still no driver is available under device manager.

    Any help is appreciated, as this is a great old scanner, and I need to scan some old 35mm slides.

    Got it! Had to use the detailed Device Manager, not the simple settings version...
    Working fine now!
    Correct - you have to use Device Manager in admin mode. Note the resolution isn't really sufficient for 35mm slide scanning/

    Many thanks to the OP.

    I have a few hundred 120/620 slides and negatives to scan with an Epson 1260. At 1200 x 2400 dpi, that's good enough for a negative that size. (Not great, but "good enough" since I don't need to do 20" x 20" prints. Nice to avoid buying a newer scanner just for these negatives.

    Agree that a 1200 scanner is not really good enough for 35 mm slides. Certainly not if you want to do more than just post a picture on Facebook.

    My thanks and appreciation also to the OP.

    I just updated my windows 10 to version 1903 and of course, my Perfection 1200U was removed. Following the original instructions no longer works.

    Having run Epson 12180.exe - apparently sucessfully, the scanner does not show up in the Device Manager (in any category).

    Since something has changed, I wonder if anyone got this scanner to work with this Win10. Your input appreciated.

    Did you turn on the scanner connected by a USB cable?

    Hi everyone, I was very hopeful when I found this thread with a solution to install drivers for Epson Perfection 1260 on a computer with Windows 10.

    I followed step by step all the instructions. My Device Manager now indicates I have an Epson scanner 2400. Problem is when I open the Epson Scan utility I get an error message, the same occurs with the Windows scanner app. It's indicating that my scanner is not connected or turned on. I unplugged the power and usb cable, replugged, but nothing seems to trigger the scanner to appear as "on".. even though the button lights are on.

    Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?

    Hi folks

    @MichelleB

    2 solutions immediately to mind here

    1) VUESCAN -- paid software but still supports literally zillions of scanners - I am in the process digitising some hundreds of old kodachrome transparencies with an AGFA PRO quality transparency scanner.

    VueScan Scanner Software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux

    2) Run a W7 or XP VM where the old scanner software still works -- scan to HDD and then use the HOST machine to do your processing whether photoshop or whatever.

    Q.E.D !!!!!!!!!

    I prefer Free software where possible so I've opted for the XP Virtual Machine which works a treat -- however in this case VUESCAN really does work and saves all sorts of messing around -- plus it keeps some perfectly good excellent scanners - especially good photo quality ones alive these days. A lot of the modern "All in one" Printer / scanner / fax machines while they basically work aren't really sufficient for great quality work.

    If you have a W7 or XP system (or the install disks) just install a Virtual Machine - you don't need all the bells and whistles - just install base OS and the VMWare tools / VBOX additions depending on what you use to get the video drivers working 100%, connect your device to the VM via usually its USB port and install the hardware / software driver on the Virtual machine -- done -- working scanner.

    You don't need to connect the VM to the Internet if you are paranoid about security.

    Here's an XP VM machine of mine running legacy hardware -- this one is still running a Minidisc player / recorder -- even today it works a treat. !!! copying an old CD to a MD. My MD player has optical output which feeds into a Studio quality sound system which is why I still use this hardware at times -- the Audio CD is actually an ISO mounted as an audio CD.
