Option 1 (Recommended): Update drivers automatically - Novice computer users can update drivers using trusted software in just a few clicks. Automatic driver updates are fast, efficient and eliminate all the guesswork. Your old drivers can even be backed up and restored in case any problems occur.
Option 2: Update drivers manually - Find the correct driver for your Scanner and operating system, then install it by following the step by step instructions below. You'll need some computer skills to use this method.
The built-in Microsoft Windows Update service may not update your drivers properly. Instead, use The Scanner Driver Update Utility for Epson. It is intelligent software that automatically recognizes your computer's operating system and scanner manufacturer and model to find the most up-to-date drivers for it. There is no risk of installing the wrong driver. The Scanner Driver Update Utility downloads and installs your drivers quickly and easily.
You can scan for driver updates automatically and install them manually with the free version of the Epson Scanner Driver Update Utility, or complete all necessary driver updates automatically using the premium version.
Click the Update button next to your driver. The correct version will be downloaded and installed automatically. Or, you can click the Update All button at the bottom to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out-of-date on your system.
To find the latest driver, including Windows 11 drivers, choose from our list of most popular Epson Scanner downloads or search our driver archive for the driver that fits your specific Epson scanner model and your PC's operating system.
After downloading your driver update, you will need to install it. Driver updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slightly different installation procedure to follow. Visit our Driver Support Page to watch helpful step-by-step videos on how to install drivers based on their file extension.

Use the\"PrefsExternal viewer\" option to control this.On Mac OS X, you can set up the default viewer for .tif and .jpg files by: click once on a .tif or .jpg file choose \"FileShow info\" choose \"Open with application\" pick the application you want to use press the \"Change All\" buttonOn Windows, you can set up the program that automaticallystarts with scanned images by setting up a file associationfor .tif and .jpg files. To create a file association, clickon a .tif or .jpg file with the right mouse button,select \"Open with\", then \"Choose program\". Pick the programyou want to use, and also select \"Always use theselected program to open this kind of file\".On Linux, use the \"PrefsViewer\" option to select theapplication to use to view .tif and .jpg files.Note that VueScan's technique for saving scans to a fileuses half as much memory as when using a TWAIN interfaceor a Photoshop Import Filter. Since VueScan is designedto work with very large, high-resolution images, it doesn'tinclude a TWAIN interface or Photoshop Import Filter.(You need to turn on the \"PrefsRelease memory\" optionto release all image memory prior to sending the scanto the image viewer.)Note also that VueScan's technique for saving scans to a fileallows you to edit an image while simultaneously scanning thenext image. Since some scans can take between 5 and 10 minutes,this results in significantly higher productivity than whenusing a TWAIN interface or a Photoshop Import Filter.Scanning Roll of FilmIf you're scanning many frames from the same roll of film,the following procedure will optimally set the CCDexposure and film base color (i.e. mask color): Set \"InputMore options\" to \"All\" Set \"InputMedia type\" Insert film with most transparent area If \"InputLock exposure\" visible Clear \"InputLock exposure\" Press \"Preview\" button Adjust cropping if necessary If \"InputLock exposure\" visible Set \"InputLock exposure\" Press \"Preview\" button If \"InputLock film base color\" visible Set \"InputLock film base color\" Batch ScanningTo scan multiple images in a batch, set \"InputBatch scan\"to \"All\" to scan all frames in a device, or set it to \"List\"and type in the list of frames (i.e. \"4 3 1\" for frames 4,3 and 1, in that order).More InformationFor more information, refer to theVueScan User's Guide.General Scanning ResourcesYou can often find answers to common scanning questions bysearching the archives of the comp.periphs.scanners newsgroup withgroups.google.com.You can also discuss scanning techniques, problems andworkarounds with other experienced scanner users in this newsgroup.There's an excellent web site withscanning tipsmaintained by Wayne Fulton.

This will cause the default folder for eachuser to be that user's \"Pictures\" folder.If VueScan doesn't see your scanner on Mac OS X, first makesure that Apple System Profiler can see the scanner. If itdoesn't, try powering off the computer, powering off the scanner,powering on the scanner and then powering on the computer.If you're using an Epson 2400/2450 on Mac OS X and are havingproblems with long startup times, try using the Firewire cable.Make sure you haven't set \"Show input menu in menu bar\" inthe \"International/Input Menu\" preferences.If VueScan hangs with Firewire scanners, make sure OpenFirmwarehas \"security-mode\" set to \"none\". Other settings cause problems.To use PIE (Pacific Image Electronics) scannerswith VueScan, you need to first installCyberView X(not CyberView 32) in the default location.VueScan uses the CyberView X libraries to control the scanner.To use the Epson Perfection 3170 with VueScan, you need tofirst install the Epson software for this scanner.If VueScan hangs when starting up, make sure that you don't havethe International Input Menu turned on - this causes problems withVueScan. This is in the International system preferences.Canon N-series and LIDE scanners are powered directly by the USB port.The USB port must provide a power supply of 500 mA. If you plugthe scanner into the USB port on a keyboard or other USB device,the scanner may not work properly. Attach the scanner directlyto a USB port on the computer or to a 500 mA self-powered USB hub.If you find that an N-series or LIDE scanner doesn't work with one ofyour USB ports, try plugging it into the other USB port.If you're using Mac OS X 10.0.4 or 10.1 with a SCSI scanner, you may need todownload newer Mac OS X SCSI driversDon't install this driver on Mac OS X 10.2 or later, since this can causekernel crashes.The driver for the beige G3 built-in SCSI has bugs on Mac OS X 10.1which have been fixed in 10.2. The driver for the beige G3 built-inSCSI is included with Mac OS X.If you don't have a SCSI interface on your Macintosh, many usershave reported success using VueScan with Firewire-to-SCSI adapters.If you've installed the beta UMAX OS X scanner software, you'll needto remove the extensions it installed in order to use VueScan.These are stored in /System/Library/Extensions. To temporarilyremove them, just rename the .kext file to .kext.save.If you're using a Microtech FireSCSI adapter, make sure thatyou're using SCSI ID 0 and that the SCSI termination is correct.If you're using an Orange Micro 906F SCSI card, make sure it'supgraded to at least firmware version F1.35.Windows Release NotesIf you've set up a shortcut to vuescan.exe and are havingproblems, try double-clicking c:\\vuescan\\vuescan.exe directly.This will test whether the problem is with the way the shortcutwas set up or whether the problem is with VueScan.To use PIE (Pacific Image Electronics) scannerswith VueScan, you need to first installCyberView X(not CyberView 32).VueScan uses the CyberView X libraries to control the scanner.To use the Epson Perfection 3170 with VueScan, you need tofirst install the Epson software for this scanner.If your scanner has a button on the front andif a program starts up when you press this buttonwhile running VueScan, you have a program runningin the background that you need to stop. To stopthis program, press control-alt-delete, choose thetask manager and use it to stop this program. Oneexample of this is the Epson Status Monitor.VueScan works on Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2K/XP, and works withall known SCSI cards. It also works fine withmultiple computers on a single SCSI bus (i.e. dualported access to scanners).If you're using Windows 2000 or Windows XP and a SCSI scanner andif VueScan doesn't find your SCSI scanner, you may need todownload and install ASPI(you don't need this for USB scanners):If VueScan won't start and you have Logitech MouseWareor a Logitech keyboard installed, try stoppingEM_EXEC.EXE and/or ITOUCH.EXE. There have been somereports of these two programs causing problems withVueScan. (These two Logitech programs cause problemsfor many other Windows programs as well.) Alternatively,try turning off the \"Smart Move\" option in MouseWare.If you have the Adaptec DirectCD Wizard on the Toolbar,you may have to remove it to get VueScan to run.If you have an ELSA Synergy III graphics card (or possiblyother NVideo graphics cards) and VueScan hangs whenstarting, you may need to disable the Desktop Managerthat comes with the card (the file that causes the problem isnvdesk32.dll).Linux Release NotesOn Linux, run vuescan from any directory.Your serial number will be stored in \".vuescanrc\"in your home directory. If you run VueScan as root and enteryour serial number, it will be stored in \"/etc/vuescanrc\"and all users on the computer will share this serial number.If you're using a Firewire scanner, make sure you'veloaded the sbp2 module.If VueScan crashes on startup, make sure you aren't usingthe idescsi module - this can cause problems.Note that PIE (Pacific Image Electronics) scannersdo not work with VueScan on Linux becauseCyberView Xisn't available on Linux.VueScan uses the CyberView X libraries to control the scanner.If you're using the Epson Perfection 3170 (GT-9400), makesure you have /usr/lib/libesint32.so from theEpson Kowa SANE distribution.You also need to set up the environment variable SANEI_EPKOWA_FIRMWAREFILEto point to the firmware file esfw32.bin.You need to make sure all of the /dev/sg* devices areread/write accessible. To see what scanners are available,type \"cat /proc/scsi/scsi\".Note that the Adaptec AVA-1505 SCSI card doesn'twork with a Nikon film scanner, and will cause ahard bus hang if you use VueScan with it. Thisis due to a bug in the aha152x driver. Another bugin this driver causes junk to be appended to theend of a raw scan when using the PhotoSmart. OtherSCSI cards seem to work fine with VueScan on Linux.There have also been problems reported with theAdaptec AVA-2904E and the Canon FS2710, althoughthis combination works fine on Windows.If you want to add or remove scsi devices withoutrebooting your system, use the following commands:echo \"scsi add-single-device 0 0 0\" > /proc/scsi/scsiecho \"scsi remove-single-device 0 0 0\" > /proc/scsi/scsi(use the SCSI ID in place of \"\" above)If you're using libusb to access a USB scanner, you needto make sure the protections in /proc/bus/usb are set upproperly. There's some information aboutsetting up libusb on Linux.To use the scanner.o module on Linux, you need to load thescanner driver and specify the vendor ID and product IDof the scanner. For instance, to recognize the Canon N670U, use\"modprobe scanner vendor=0x04a9 product=0x220d\". Then type\"cat /proc/bus/usb/devices\" and make sure \"Driver=usbscanner\"is enabled for your scanner.If you're using Linux 2.4.12 or later, you don't needto do anything special to have the scanner auto-recognized.If you're using an earler version of Linux with a USBscanner, set up the SCANNER0 environment variable to pointto /dev/usbscanner or /dev/usb/scanner (it needs to beread/write accessible), set up the SCANVID0 environmentvariable with the USB Vendor ID (VID) and set up theSCANPID0 environment variable with the USB Product ID (PID).You can support up to 8 USB scanners at a time by usingSCANNER1, SCANNER2, SCANVID1, SCANVID2, etc.For instance, to set up VueScan for the Epson 640, usethe following commands if you're using csh: setenv SCANNER0 /dev/usbscanner setenv SCANVID0 04b8 setenv SCANPID0 010cor if you're using sh or bash: export SCANNER0=\"/dev/usbscanner\" export SCANVID0=\"04b8\" export SCANPID0=\"010c\"Note that you don't need to set up these environment variableson newer Linux kernels or if you're using libusb.If you're having problems with USB timeouts (i.e. withthe Nikon CoolScan IV (LS-40), make sure you use the\"usb-uhci\" (CONFIG_USB_UHCI) module instead of thealternate \"uhci\" (CONFIG_UHCI_ALT) module. You might alsoincrease the kernel usb timeout value (CONFIG_USB_LONG_TIMEOUT=y).Removing VueScanTo remove VueScan, delete the entire directory.There are no files installed elsewhere on thesystem.WarrantyTHIS SOFTWARE AND ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTATION (INCLUDINGINSTRUCTIONS FOR USE) ARE PROVIDED \"AS IS\" WITHOUT WARRANTYOF ANY KIND, FURTHER, HAMRICK SOFTWARE DOES NOT WARRANT,GUARANTEE, OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE,OR THE RESULTS OF USE, OF THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATIONIN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, CURRENTNESS,OR OTHERWISE.
