Question about HP ScanJet 3200C Flatbed Scanner
How to attach outdated scanner hardware cable to computer w/usb ports (i.e., remove old unit from compaq and use w/dell desktop usb ports)?
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 If your problem is that your scanner has an "outdated" connector and you want to try to connect it to your PC via USB ports, the only sensible answer, given the prices of scanners, is to buy a new scanner.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!
