This scanner is an old one so it has only parallel port. You can connect it to any USB with the converter you mentioned and should be working. Did you connect the power supply at the scanner too? It is nesessary for the scanner in order to take power.
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.
I had similar problem with my UMAX scanner on numerousoccasions. I now have this pg earmarked for quick reference! may help I don't know for sure but it is an easy test and if it works your good to go!
It is important that you connect the scanner's power and USB cables in the following order:
1. Plug the power adapter cord into the scanner and into an outlet. The scanner's power will then be on.
2. Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the
back or front of the computer.
NOTE: If you unplug the scanner's power ,you must also disconnect the USB cable from the computer. To resume use of the scanner, remove the power card, the the USB cable.
Sounds like a lot but the order is essential!
If it works, High lite Do unplug USB/unplug cable back of scanner/and plug cable back of scanner then USB!
Good Luck Hope this helps!
try plugging the USB connection at the back of you computer. If still didn't work out, delete the old driver install the new one, be sure cables are connected and intact. If still didn't work out bring your scanner to the service center near you
quite possible the scanner motor finnaly gave out but lets look at other things first
try connecting to another usb port on comp before that completly take out all of the scanners drivers and programs this could be a simple file corrupt
i know you tried this but sometimes putting a new driver over old driver doesnt usually change the old drivers properties this is when you completly take out all drivers and software and start from scratch for this scanner
Click the "+" next to "Imaging Devices". This will show all Imaging Devices previously and currently connected to the computer.
If listed, right-click on the DocuMate 510 then left click on "Uninstall"
If asked to confirm the uninstall, click "OK"
If the scanner is listed more than one time, uninstall ALL occurrences of the scanner
IF you see "?Other Devices" in the device manager list, click on the "+" to view the list of Other Devices
Right click on any instince of the scanner in this list then left click on "Uninstall" The scanner may be listed as any of the following:
Once the scanner has been completely removed from Device Manager, turn the scanner back on
If there is no Found New Hardware message when the scanner is turned back on and the scanner is not listed in Device Manager under Imaging Devices or Other Devices, this typically means the scanner is not communicating correctly with the computer. Try plugging the scanner into a different USB port or using a different USB cable.
