Bear Paw 1200Cu plus under windows 7 64

installed bear paw 1200Cu plus drivers under Windows7 64

this is an achievement! bear paw 1200Cu is a very old scanner and so far it was not possible to set up it under win7 64 bit. but now a combination of

1) st install
2) nd install

25 Nov 2014 edit: for now it is possible just to download right driver from here


did it.

maybe just second link was enough ? but anyway after installing both and rebooting ( just rebooting with first one will cause windows crash ) everything works.So I’m able to use this old, but still useful scanner from time to time.

    Process did not work for me? I get message that scanner is not connected to my computer (windows 7 pro 64 bit). Any suggestions?

    PLEASE can you give specific instructions as you say yourself that you cannot remember the order in which you installed the drivers – just the first or 1st one then second?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mr S Virdi

      Yes, install first, then immediately ( no reboot ) install second , just installing only one ( either first or second ) will not make a trick, so do as it described

    I have tried the above – no luck!

    It just says Scanner not ready when I try to do a scan.

    Finally, should I have connected the usb cable before or after the 2 drivers – as I connected it after. Any advice?

      I see, but I hardly can help here. As you may see – it helped to some folk, but I cannot guarantee it could work for anyone. No I really remember exactly when and how I attached scanner.

      So – just a pity

    Hi, do you have the FIRST (setup.exe) downloaded and available?. The Mustek link is taking over 1 hr 45 mins to download!!!!. No probs with my internet. Appreciate you help.

      1. AKS

        Hi, Managed to complete the download from your original link. The scanner works like a charm on Window7/64 bit.

        Just in case any one is interested, I installed the second link 1st and then First link (setup.exe). Restarted laptop, plugged in scanner, Windows found and installed the drivers, Thanks again for persevering and finding this solution. I am sure it will help many others!. Regards

    What a highlight! Without thinking much, just followed your cookbook – and it works!!!!! Would be nice if every installation guide would be so.
    Thanks, Juerg

    Hi Sergey, The Mustek FTP site seems to be down. Do you still have the setup.exe lying around somewhere?
    Thanx in advance!

    Got it, thanx. Weird that the ftp site seems to be down at my end. I’ve installed it and rebooted, but when I try to scan it tells me that the scanner isn”t connected. Does it matter that I don’t have the “Plus” version? In device manager the drivers are installed and the scanner is visible. So the web64 drivers seem to be installed.

    Hi Sergey, I run the steps as you said, and it doesnt work “The scanner is not connected” dialog box appears.
    Im trying on a Windows7 64bits OS. Any ideas? Thanks a lot
