Hi!

I'm not really sure what you're asking. If your problem is that your scanner has an "outdated" connector and you want to try to connect it to your PC via USB ports, the only sensible answer, given the prices of scanners, is to buy a new scanner. Your old scanner, if it is not USB, is probably a SCSI connector device. Do a Google search exactly like this "USB to SCSI adapter cable" and you'll see a lot of results. Cables generally seem to range from $20 to $100. Even if you get the scanner connected, there is a very high probability that there will not be any drivers available that will work with the new computer and cable. All-in-all, a new scanner, even a cheap one, is the way to go IMO, and will give you better scans to boot.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!

Bob

This is usually caused by a faulty USB handshake. The two most common causes are bad contact (i.e. bad USB port or cable) and interference inside USB hubs, especially the externally powered ones.

You can (usually) solve the problem by disconnecting the cable, waiting for the USB disconnect sound, and reconnecting the cable.

The real solution of course is to correct the hardware problem (which might be as easy as using another USB port, or as difficult as having the scanner replaced -- even if usually the problem is external to the device).

The computer recognizes the hardware, however scanner is not scanning. Have windows XP. How can I tell if the scanner is broken, there are no lights on it?


your scanner is ok.
But there is communication problem from computer to scanner .
For that
Check your usb cxable and usb port of computer working fine.
Try in another usb port.
If you have other port like parallel port then check it.
Check drivers of scanner are instaled proeprly.
Ig already installed then uninstall it and install again.
Also uninstall all usb drivers then restart the computer then it automatic install usb drivers .
you can uninstall usb drivers from computer with device manager.
Press windows key + Pause break key to see system proeprty then go to hardware then you see device manager then uninstall all usb drivers.
