I have a tevion film strip scanner suitable for software Windows XP and Vista but my new laptop is Windows 7 and now it won't work. Can I download the software to use the scanner with my new l


Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.
So if you manage to get any driver, just test it. The software that came with your scanner should work. (At least in the XP compatible mode)
The next thing you can try is to download any free ware scanner software. Perhaps you can get a trail version of SilverFast, for your scanner. As soon as you have to pay for the software, think of buying a new scanner, because sometimes a Windows 7 or 8 compatible film scanner is cheaper than the software.

The SilverFast software starts at 59 dollar, (not even sure they have a compatible package for your scanner) My pro version costs already 300. But perhaps you can download a trail version there to see if it works for you. (Perhaps if you remove the software or stop using when you have to pay for it, the driver keeps working??)

Why can't I download my CANO SCAN set up CD-Rom on to my new Windows 7


The CD-ROM has the installers for older versions of Windows. The installation routines for the newer versions of Windows have changed considerably from those that were in use when the CD was written. You can get the drivers and Canon Toolbox software for the scanner from Canon: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_lide25#DriversAndSoftware . Select Windows 7 in the dropdown menu. The software will work with any version of Windows 7.

The only exception is that the third-party software is not available for downloads. If you want to use the original CD software (assuming the disc is undamaged) and you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install Virtual PC and XP mode for a free XP virtual computer. Then install the scanner to the "XP computer" as you normally would. However, the virtual computer and the Win7 computer cannot both have the hardware installed simultaneously. So to share files, you may need to save them to external media (optical or hard drive). If you have one of the other versions of Windows 7, you can do the same thing with any virtual PC program and a licensed older version of Windows.

I hope this helps.

How do i get my mustek 1200 iii ep flatbed scanner to work with windows xp. my computer restarts every time i clink on scan.


If you have the orginal software that came with your scaner and it says that it is compatible to Windows XP, you may need to use the disc to reinstall it. YOu will first need to turn off the scanner and unplug it from the PC. Then uninstall the old software from install/uninstall in your control panel. (start>control panel>install/uninstall programs, search the list for your scanner software.)

If you do not have the software or it is not for Windows XP:

There is the link to a site with a driver download specifically for your scanner, instructions on installing it for windows XP and also a link to answers to problems for your specific scanner.

http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/driv_scanr/english/1200ub.html
.
Before you begin any download make sure your virus control software is up to date.

First click on the link "Instructions for XP installation and print it out.
Next click on a driver for XP from the chart to download it. When a window pops up click save and browse until you locate desktop. Save this file to your desktop. It will be an .exe file.
Turn off your scanner and unplug it from your PC and uninstall the oldsoftware as advised above.
Click on your new driver file to install it. Follow instructions.
Once the driver is installed, plug the scanner back into the computer and turn it on.
Restart your computer.
It should now recognize your scanner.
Try a scan.

Can CanoScan be installed on two computers?


Most scanners including all-in-one printers can be shared acrossed a network. Hook up the scanner to one computer. At that computer, go into the control panel and to scanners (XP that would be printers and other hardware and then scanners). Right click on the CanoScan and click sharing. You can assign a name to the device. Go to other networked computer and add the device. You should be given an option to locate device on a network. Install the same driver and software you want to use with scanner.

Note: I'm not a Mac user, I've given instructions based on Windows XP/Vista. But, process should be similar.

Connecting old IBM color flatbed scanner to new computer


Not likely to work reliably if you get it to work.
The parallel port must be set to communicate in both directions. The SUB to Parallel adapter may be a ONE-WAY communications device.

Get a new (or used) Epson scanner or Epson all-in-one ($50) which includes a scanner and printer! Your new computer may not have the proper drivers for your old IBM scanner, anyway. If you purchase an Epson all-in-one, get a "WorkForce" model - that's their latest product line.
