Question about Microtek ScanMaker X6 Flatbed Scanner
I have purchased a secondhand Microtek x6 scanner and lightlid (1999 I am told) to scan my old slides, photos and negitives to disk. The scanner and lightlid come with no instruction manuals and I find I can not use the scanner at all. It has been connected to my computer by another more knowing person and they have put Scan Suite and PhotoImpact 4.2 into my computer. The scanner turns on. Can anyone help me with manuals please?

A Scanner this old is not likely to work with a computer that is current. You did not say if you have the driver disk to try. If you have and have loaded the MiraScan software,right click on the program icon and click on properties then campatability and set to run as W98 and see what happens You will not find driver for this one now. I assume you are running XP or 2000 This scanner designed to run with W95/98 is not compatible with modern NTFS systems.
