Epson SCSI scanner GT7000 driver and twain problem solved in XP
First of all you need to know that Epson sold this scanner in some countries as the Perfection 636U - so grab those drivers for your operating system on Epson's website.
* WATCH OUT what bit your set up is, 32 or 64!
Twain 5 will not work with a 32-bit set up
Go to device manager, find the scanner or question mark there and click on update driver, then point it at where you have saved the perfection 636U drivers on your computer.
Install the twain (version 3.42 that comes with it) and set up a shortcut on your desktop to it.
Twain 3.42 that comes with the Epson perfection 636U drivers, does work.
I am not able to "Get from scanner" in programs, but I can get into twain 3.42 with a desktop shortcut and scan and save from there, in bitmap format.
This of course, allows me to open the saved scans in other programs to change file type and edit.
I know the GT-7000 Epson scanner is an old piece of kit, but it's a great scanner, especially if you want to scan and adjust negatives.
I now have an old (ish) computer set up with windows XPÂ via the SCSI cable, that can scan, save and send my old pictures.
I hope it doesn't take you two days of testing and messing about, like it did for me!
