    Does anyone have problems installing Twain 5 Driver in Windows 7 and in get the scanner recognised???

    I followed the help posted in this forum and got no results.

    But tried the following:

    Fisrt of all unplugged scanner usb cable;
    Then uninstalled existing Twain driver (http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/...Type=FAQ&oid=14548&prodoid=6464128&foid=32323);
    Then reinstalled Twain driver (http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/..._UseBVCookie=yes&oid=14548&infoType=Downloads);
    Reconnet your scanner usb cable
    Then in Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Devices and Printers select you Epson scanner and Properties
    Look for Update Driver
    Select Browse My Computer
    Then chose the following directory to look into - C:\Windows\inf - and select Include Subfolders.

    This solved my problems and now my Epson Perfection 1250 is working under Windows 7.

    Hope it helps you
