    I have seems to have misplaced my Windows CD, the one that I found was the MAC
    one..

    I can get all the drivers from the HP Web Site but not the Photo Scan software
    or OCD that this scanner supports, its on the Installation CD, from what I
    have read.


    If some one could get me a copy it would be appreciated, or how to get one
    from HP..



    Tried HP support, cost me $30, totally useless all they sent me was a Driver
    on a CD, plus all the help desk staff do not speak English that well.



    Can any one help, as I do not mind paying..


    Thanks..

    Hi,

    I know I have the disks for the 5470c around here somewhere... I'll track
    it down tommorrow. Drop me an email with your details and I'll make a copy
    and post it to you... Remove the numbers from
    the address!

    top posted.

    The Installation CD..


    Only Drivers.

    Only Drivers.
    Did all that, Only Driver support.

    Yes left them a e-mail, No reply.


    Been there done all that HP can't help, plus it does not have the Commercial
    Applications that come on the Install CD, like Corel and OCD stuff.

    They ONLY Have Drivers on there Web site..

    Use the telephone, It works better when you speak to a human.
    OCD?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsessive_compulsive_disorder

    I think you mean OCR (Optical character recognition)
    Omnipage Pro 15 is about a good as OCR gets at this time.

    What Corel? Corel makes lots of software. Maybe you are looking for Corel
    Paint Shop.
    http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=Corel3/Products/Display&pfid=1047024307383

    Right!
    You are looking for FREE software.
    http://graphicssoft.about.com/cs/imageediting/tp/freephotoedw.htm

    Trial versions of ABBYY software.
    http://download.abbyy.com/content/default.aspx

    Trial version of Photoshop Elements 4.0
    http://www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jsp#product=40

    Press release.

    Then check out this free OCR software.
    It will not do what a commercial package will do.
