Welcome to CN! My guess is they don't have drivers and it just doesn't work with Windows 8.

I'd email the manufacturer and see what their plans are. Most of us imagers tend to keep old laptops around because we've seen this rinse and repeate as windows has updated. It can take manufacturers months before they get a good driver out.
