I’ve been trying to get our old Visioneer 7600 to work and have lost the CD. Thank goodness for “dll-files.com”:http://dll-files.com or “downloadthis.com”:http://www.downloadthis.net/dllfiles.html they actually have all these random DLLS that various folks spill everywhere.
The required files that are needed are:
* maxkrnl.dll
* www.dll-files.com – download maxcodec.dll is a good example. Used by PaperPort 6.1.
* maxutil.dll
* pperr.dll
* maxrast.dll
Well, now it says it can’t find the device and connect. Arrrghh.

    You are right. A great scanner is now $90 as show in popphoto.com. I guess I’m too cheap to get a new one, but I should. The prices have really fallen and we need one.

    I just picked up one of these 7600 USB models secondhand and cannot get XP to install. I have the CD, it quits and asks for another scanner. Is there a driver download to fix this?

    You are a lifesaver Rich. Thought I had lost my Visioneer OneTouch scanner when I migrated from Win98 to XP. Thanks to your posting, I followed your instructions to load maxkrnl.dll and the others and was able to install the darned scanner.
    Now the only thing left is the printer. XP will not install the USB driver for my Epson Stylus 580. XP install in on parallel port while the printer is USB. XP does find a USB printer and starts to install the USB driver and stops!!!!!!!!!!!1

    They are in dllfiles.com. Look there and do a search for the specific names

    You’re right, but I’m such a nerd, I just can’t stand the idea of throwing something away that works. 3 hours of my time certainly isn’t worth it, but heck, I got it to work 🙂

    dude, scanners are so cheap now, just buy a new one. your time is worth more than the savings of trying to make the old thing work.
