Sounds like a driver issue. Start by confirming the device is seen and the driver has NO issues
To see the device and it's properties, go to the control panel, scroll down to the System icon, click it, go to the "hardware" tab, then to device manager. Looking for anything having a yellow question mark or yellow exclamation mark next to it. If you see one it means something is either wrong with the driver ( incomplete - not loaded properly - wrong one - ect...) or the device itself and possibly the scanner/cable has malfunctioned.

I can better tell what is going on by looking at it myself. If you'd like for me to remote in, call me and then click this link if we need to.

I have upgraded to a new computer Acer with windows 7 from xp on my old computer as my old driver disc only goes to XP my primascan 2600ywont work how can i download a driver for windows 7 and will this...

Yes it will solve the problem.But its not your problem its Microsoft's. Your printer wont work becasue the maker of your printer probably dont have the drivers for windows 7 yet already made. All you can do is continually recheck the printer manufacturers website for a driver update. You are not the first to experience this problem.

How can I connect my scanner to my Toshiba

Hello Edward,
In order for you scanner to work correctly you will need the drivers for the scanner..( basically the software that supports the scanner) If you have not got the Disc the only way you can do this now is connect the Laptop to the internet via wireless or with a cable then if you go to Google and type in the search bar...

drivers for *********** scanner.

*** = make of scanner.

You will then see a list of potential site that will have the drivers for that particular scanner. you may need to have a play with the wording in google. Ie might be worth putting the model number in there as well.

simply download the drivers and run the program this should prompt you step by step in what you need to do Ie when to connect the scanner to the laptop etc.

I hope this has cleared a few things up for you

Software doesn't work anymore

If you got this scanner to work with Windows 98, the scanner is an antique. New scanners are so much better, my first suggestion is to get a new scanner, one that works with Vista as well as XP. It will have all new software that comes with it. Otherwise you could purchase, new software such as Nuance Easy Media Creator 10 Suite, right now you can get it with Paperport 11 added in for FREE. However consider the cost of a new scanner, versus the cost of buying new software only, and running it on the old scanner.
