Is my Scanmaker X6 compatible with Windows Vista?

I currently have Windows XP and my scanner works very well with it. However, I plan to purchase a new PC with Windows Vista Home installed in it. Question: Will my scanner work with the Vista operating system? If not, what must I do to get it to work.. Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Microtek Scanmaker 4800 does not work on Vista no drivers all xp. How can you get scanner working?


I really you cannot use this Scanner for Vista, only before Vista came out there's no Driver Freeware available yet or the Microtek didn't not provide the driver freeware for this.
I suggest you to install it with Windows XP, it's better on Windows XP and don't need to install in Windows Vista, it's no use on it.
Or also you just buy a new one ready for Windows Vista scanner.
Provided that the Microtek didn't yet give a driver for this then install it where it is compatible with.

Downloaded driver computer can`t find scanner


Something old enough to work on Windows 98 probably won't be very happy on Vista ... however, I'd try the XP version of drivers before you teach it to fly!

Scanner will not scan


http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SCANNER-Digital-CAMERA-WEBCAM/MICROTEK/MICROTEK-Scanner-ScanMaker-6000-590.shtml

that's the specific driver. download and install that. if you find that vista programs can now 'see' the scanner, but still don't 'know what the scanner is', then you can uninstall the driver again, and then go back to the exe. file and right click on it. Then click Properties. There is a chance that you will see a Compatibility tab. If you do, click that and choose XP compatibility mode from the list, press Apply, then ok. Then install it and reboot again.
If it still doesn't work, then either there is no Vista compatibility for your scanner, ie it's too old to use with anything later than xp, or you need to clean the pc and the registry up with something like ncleaner, which is free and a really handy program, i swear by it.

hope this helps

Your Model 3840 Scan only works with Win 98SE/ME/2000/XP

At this point you can do:

1) Replace your Scanner for one Vista Compatible

or

2) Downgrade your system to Window XP

New pc dell inspiron windows vista. need JUST the drivers for a microtek i320


Hi den9140,

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but the i320 was made before Vista came out, so it is only compatible with Windows XP and earlier. In addition, Microtek has announced that it plans to cease selling consumer products in North America, so there will not be any additional drivers coming.

Again I apologize, and I wish I had better news for you - please let me know if I can be of any future assistance.

Microtek x6 scanner and lightlid instruction manuals


A Scanner this old is not likely to work with a computer that is current. You did not say if you have the driver disk to try. If you have and have loaded the MiraScan software,right click on the program icon and click on properties then campatability and set to run as W98 and see what happens You will not find driver for this one now. I assume you are running XP or 2000 This scanner designed to run with W95/98 is not compatible with modern NTFS systems.
