Question about Microtek MRS-1200X6U ScanMaker X6 Flatbed Scanner
My scanner seems to think it is scanning when it actually isn't. Thus, it won't let me scan anything new - when I try, I get a message that the scanner is busy. I've clicked "cancel" and I've also turned the scanner and computer off and disconnected the USB cable for the scanner, but when I reconnect and bring the computer and turn the scanner back on, I still get the "busy" message. I can run the diagnostic on the scanner, though, and I'm told that the scanner is working. Help!

First thing to do is un install and reinstall the software. Then consider - what other software could be running the could conflict[A graphics program for example]is to try another software for scanning if available. The other thing to consider is the age of the scanner- if it is from the DOS era-95/8/ME- then it will like as not not run- there is a firmware problem. Scanners have a controller chip - DOS era devices are looking for DOS commands - and they are getting NTFS commands- various makers like Microtek tried driver fudges- but they did not work. It has to be a NTFS scanner for NTFS commands.

This is a funny problem. Try & locate SCanwizard 5 files and delete them. Complete the registry deletion as suggested. Run scandisk. Install and uninstall Scanwizard 5.
