Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

The only way to properly get that device working is to either install the old windows 7 64 bit twain driver for the scanner, and try to force it to work on windows 8.

Or, to use the vuescan program ( its a paid program ) and then install the scanner through that program.

Would you like me to connect to your computer via a screen sharing session and get the scanner working for you using the windows 7 driver?
