Yes you can still use the scanner. The beauty of todays technology is that there are adapters for everything. You can get a SCSI to USB adapter for just a few dollars at most best buy stores.

Software and driver


You should be able to download the proper drivers for your Operating System directly from Microtek:

http://www.microtek.com/

Since you didn't tell us which country you're located in, or which OS you're using, I can't provide any more specific information for you...

The Download page is located here, for users in the US:

http://support.microtek.com/downloads/

From what I could determine, the X6 model was discontinued some time ago, and there were at least THREE versions of it; you'll have to find it listed under the Product Category in the Discontinued Products section, then choose the version (parallel port / EPP, SCSI, or USB), in order to download the driver you need. Seems that the SCSI version has drivers ONLY for Apple computers; if you're using Windows, you'll need to choose one of the other options...

THE PROPER WAY ON INSTALLING USB DEVICES A. Enable usb ports on the BIOS. 1. Do not plug in your device right away. Install all drivers and software first! 2. Reboot 3. Plug the power or turn on your USB Device 4. Plug in the USB Port. 5. Windows Will detect the Device Automatically. Finish! Hope this helps.

Connecting a scanner


Hi, Based on your post/description, I will assume that your scanner then is X6 EPP and that: 1. you have the original CD installer or downloaded the 3 .exe files from http://support.microtek.com/downloads/drv_specific.phtml?cnntn=a&x=21&y=20&slct_os=8&step=2&prod=87&bymdlnme=1&drvgrp=87 2. you followed the instruction in your manual or at http://support.microtek.com/tech_faqs_stp.phtml?request=FAQ-PCDI&point=KB-00003#stepbystep and still "...the "test connection" says there is no connection..." A possible workaround: Power off and reboot, on restart hit del, F2 or whatever it is that will allow you to go to BIOS. In the BIOS setup, look for the "Parallel Port Mode", you might have several choices are ECP, SPP, EPP, ECP + EPP; select EPP, save, exit, reboot. Try your scanner. If this doesn't work, try the ECP + EPP or the others (might as well). If still a no go, double check that you have the right drivers for the right Windows. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
