Trying to scan accurate musical instrument parts

Hello there.
When I scan an object (part of a musical instrument) with my hp G4010 scanner and print it out on my hp 6980 desk jet the results are not to 100 scale.
example:  if I scan my ruler, the print out gives me an "inch" that is larger than one "inch"
I have all the scale set at 100% and am using a low resolution.
Help me, oh help me please.

    Well, I did just that. Printer works fine, I still get a larger image when I print.

    Perhaps this observation will help someone help me.

    When I pull up the jpg in Mac "preview" I get the proper scale. When I send to print and select preview from the drop down menu, I get a preview that is larger, and that is what comes out of the printer.

The driver is overrides the final printout scale. By default it will try to fit the page. Use Photoshop for complete image control.

This may be a flaw in the programming, i suspect it is, have you contacted tech support for the scanner? also if the scale is an issue then reduce or increase the size from 100% setting to compensate for the discrepancy. All in all I think the issue is with the scanner software, go to the web site and check for updated software, in stall the lateest release date of software, also check for patches for this scale related issue.

Go to the Device manager and delete ( not only uninstall ) driver for G4010 .
Now unplug unit . Go to Controm Pannel \ programs and delete the software . You can also and preferably use a cleaning tool such as Revo Uninstaller .
Reboot but do not connect scanner yet . Reinstall software driver .
Reboot and wait for OS to be settled .
Connect your scanner and wait for confirmation of successfull operation It should work now , presuming you haven't changed your OS since before .
Regards .
