Connecting the scanner to a new computer with Windows Vista

I have a new Dell C521 computer with Windows Vista. I am trying to connect my AcerScan 620p Flatbed scanner to it. Dell sent me the wrong connection. I looked on line but the cables that i found say for printers only. I was told that I need a Parallel to USB adapter but there are so many. How do I know which one will fit?

If the Acer has an parallel connection and not USB this indicated to me it is an older machine from the Win98 era. In which case it will not work with Vista. Indeed many newer devices do not work with Vista there is a real issue here Check back with Dell on this.

I am trying to setup the acer scan 620 p on a dell and it doesn't recognize it

If you have windows 7, you should connect the hardware first and let the windows try to get the drivers from the internet.
If it doesn't work you can also try to download the drivers from here.

I have an old Mirascan v3.04 620UT flatbed scanner (windows 98)

There is no Vista driver for this Acer scanner.
Acer didn't create a vista driver for it. (or Benq)

Acerscan 620U

The Acer 620U runs great with VueScan ( ) on Vista, it's not freeware but you can still use your Acer scanner. Free download to try.

Running windows vista os

Afraid not Scanners made ror Win95/98/Me run to DOS commands
XP/Vista of course are both NTFS systems and will not speak to such a scanner.
Time for a new scanner Vista Compatible.

New driver

I searched through BenQ site as they were previousily Acer Communications or something which made this and other scanners and it only has drivers that are supported up to Windows XP.


That link will take you to the US driver download page for your scanner, change the country to whatever country you reside in. It may work with Vista if you run the driver update as a XP program with the compatibility wizard or when you install the scanner. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you may just have to go buy a scanner that will run with Vista or an all in one printer that is supported in Vista.
