IS there anyone who can advise me on reinstalling this scanner? I have had it years, but since downloading Windows 10 those few years ago scanner does not want to work. I have the legit installation CD. thanks Howard

What software did it come with?
It's possible it might not work with Windows 10.

You could try VueScan, that works with Windows 10 and pretty much every scanner available:

If you are using the Silverfast software you should be able to find a free update for windows 10 to download from the Silverfast website. I had to do this for a Plustek 7500 scanner or maybe it was a driver from the Plustek website. Not sure which one now I think about it.
I can't remember the details of how to install it now took me a bit to work it out I'm easily confused by such things.

I've done some checking I found an update for my version of the Silverfast software and a new driver from Plustek.

Your collective responses are appreciated. I have been on to the Silverfast website and went through what I took to be the process of downloading an update or whatever - but the end result is a message saying Silverfast is not found on this system' yet it shows up in Control Panel. But I will continue in my search! Thank you again
