    Default Win 8 driver for Perfection 610

    I seek a driver so I can use my old (but perfectly serviceable) Epson Perfection 610 scanner with my new Win 8 Acer laptop. I've done numerous web searches, many of which look promising until you get down to the nitty-gritty.

    Since 8.1 isnt compatible with it, I doubt Win8 will be

    Time to update it I think. Unless the V600 drivers from the Epson site work

    You may find its to old. Happens sometimes.

    have you tired the inbuilt Scanner in Windows 8 ?

    Go to the start screen type in Windows Fax and scan - Select it, then click new Scan - See if it picks up the Scanner.

    Failing that what May work is paperscanFree

    It MAY work with Vuescan. But it's not free for some of it's options

    Win8 can provide surprises. I have an old Canon S750 printer that didn't have a Win8 DVR but after a while Win8 just installed it out of the blue.

    Win8 did the same thing here once it had installed the drivers for the wireless and once it was online. It installed the tuner drivers probably from windowsupdate
