I posted this for another user but i'll post it here too,

I remember looking for hours for a driver for my Epson 1200 scanner back when I upgraded by dad to Vista 64 Bit, eventually I found one. Just today I upgraded him to Windows 7 64 bit and remembered I couldn't get it to work, luckily I was able to dig up the driver I used for Vista 64. Worked great in Windows 7.

I can't remember where I found it so I can't credit the person who made the driver unfortunately, however i've uploaded it to Rapidshare for you to download. Here is the link:

http://rapidshare.com/files/324940248/epsonScan_1.0_Per1200Win64eu.zip.html

Just open up the zip file and run the setup. :)

Hope this helps, Merry Christmas!

    Wow, I didn't expect so many downloads for my link.

    I've uploaded the file again as requested, this time it shouldn't expire:

    Thank you SO MUCH! If you had not shared this driver, I'd be somewhere crying right now. You saved my life!

  • karlai Jul 11, 2011

    Hi there,

    Is there any way you can upload the file again? I just tried and I can't seem to find it.

    Thanks so much!

Windows 7 drivers for the Epson Perfection 1200U may be found at the following:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=7BXHNC35

Have tested with own 1200U on Windows 7 64-bit. Works properly. It is based on the drivers for the Epson 2400. Minor changes to the .inf file allow it to work. Note that the Start button on the scanner also works. The software is somewhat different than the original. Another option is to buy software that enables the scanner.

  • Sgtbld Dec 22, 2010

    It's been awhile since I installed the drivers for the Epson 1200U. If I remember correctly, I downloaded the driver, unzipped it, clicked on the setup.exe file, and allowed the software to complete. I then connected the scanner. I don't recall if Windows installed the hardware or if the scanner was ready at this point. However, there should be a shortcut in the Start menu and/or on the desktop which will allow you to test the scanner.

  • Sassybassgal Feb 23, 2011

    Thank you so much. Yours was the only solution that worked for me. I really didn't want to buy a new scanner.

Hi
We are a service center for Epson, they do not make drivers for Windows 7.

If Windows 7 does not have a generic driver that will work, you are out of luck.

thanks

EpsonScan_1.0_Per1200Win64eu can be download from: http://www.box.net/shared/5rxsn87mqr.

I did it today (18 Oct 2011) and I now have my Epson 1200U Photo scanning paper and film/negatives on a new Dell laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Every facility is there. If it's generic, it certainly recognises and names my scanner in the GUI. I had despaired of every getting it to work.

Hi,

I know this scanner is getting very old in the tooth, but it seems a shame to dump something that is working just fine physically.

Would anyone please be able to offer some help getting an Epson 1200s (the SCSI version) working with Windows 7 64bit?

I think the problem might be with the SCSI interface card as it is not supported by Windows 7. From looking at the hardware ID it seems to be an Adaptec AIC-7850 PCI SCSI Controller. I guess there is no use installing TWAIN drivers until the SCSI card is first set-up correctly.

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.


Anthony.

Friends now you can upgrade to win 10 for free if your system is win 7 or win 8. If guys who have neither win 7 nor win 8 you can also upgrade to win 10 by visiting: http://www.instructables.com/id/Step-by-Step-Upgrade-Process-From-Windows-7-to-Win/. There you can get genuine win 10 product key to activate windows 10 in a cheap price.

Adaptec 7870 based SCSI cards (f.e. Adaptec 2940U/UW but not Adaptec 2940U2/U2W - they're based on different chip) could be plugged to Win7 x64.

Scanner is detected but, then, no drivers. Epson 1200S 64bit drivers (at least for Epson Processor SCSI device). I'd be glad if someone solved this somehow.

    Finally, the Adaptec2940UW and shareware VueScan software will give a chance to use the Epson 1200S for some time more with Windows 7 64bit. Vuescan doesn't require scanner drivers, only SCSI card detected and operating.

Is there a driver for my Epson Perfection 1200U scanner which is compatible with Windows 10?


Its working perfectly with Epson 2400U drivers.
  • Download and install the Perfection 2400U drivers from Epson USA, version 3.04A http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...rm=OSF_W_10-64
  • 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

Epson perfection 1200 photo scanner won't work now I have changed to Windows 7. I cannot find any software update to help.


Okay, after careful investigation I have found that your scanner is not windows 7 complaint there fore there is no driver solution for this scanner. If you read below the last operating system this worked on was NT

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=FAQs&oid=14557&prodoid=8161

Now if you have windows ultimate you can run a virtual machine on this and hopes it will work, Also a dual boot will be a solution as well. Otherwise its not compatable.

Thanks and pelase do be considerate when leaving a rting to this fact.
