Can you provide another way of getting the driver since Megaupload has been shut down. martmar221 at gmail.com Thanks!Thanks for the response Wild One.
I actually found someone who directed me to a Vista 64 Bit version which works really well on Windows 7 64 Bit.
Here is the link:

This solution worked with one exception. Selecting the 1680 inf file did not work but selecting the 1600 inf file did. Epson should really update their 1660 driver page with this solution. Thanks.This worked for me - found it on another Q&A
Re: (Unofficial) drivers for Epson Perfection 1660 scanner
[HR][/HR]What did work was installiong the x64 driver from Epson for their Epson Expression 1680 Professional scanner instead. I had to force the Device Manager driver install to use the .inf file for the 1680.
Download and run the Epson file.
It will extract to here:
(I didn't have to do this )Then cancel the install process. Did following:
Open Device Manager.
Right click the scanner (will have yellow "!") MINE DIDN"T
click update driver, click click :Browse my comp", click "let me pick from list..." , click have disk, then browse to here:
(pick any inf, and it should go from there.) Did the .inf but not sure if it worked- I clicked on the set-up.exe file.
The scanner worked!! Had an Epson scan icon on desktop & that opened right up.( Like interface better, too) Also scanned into Word as a .doc ( smaller file) after I had it use the 1680 in my scanner of choice. I had been trying for about 2 months to solve this so I didn't have to buy a new scanner. What a relief. Now I just have to try it in Photo Elements. Hopeit works for you.
I'm in the same boat. HELP please.Hi,
After upgrading to Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, my Epson Perfection 1660 Scanner lacks a driver.
I see references to the long dead Megaupload site, which are now useless.
Could anyone be kind enough to provide me with this driver to save me from throwing out a scanner which works perfectly well on XP.
With the appropriate 64 bit driver I am sure that I would get many more years out of it.
