Uploader Notes

I Basicly used the Hp Scanjet 3970 Driver from HP (209MB) which is really hard on dial up. This is also for people that don't want the HP Image Programs. This a driver only test on Windows XP but you could try others. All you need to do is extract the ZIP, Specify the driver to the extracted folder and select the INF file. If it asks for files they are all in the folder. Enjoy! :) Please don't e-mail me unless there is a real problem with the driver in Windwos XP. Not because you don't understand. Thank You

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.
