Question about Acer ScanPrisa 640P Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Cable connectivity with my laptop through a "parallel to usb cable". My laptop has no parallel port but only usb ports.

I've an Acer scanprisa 640p scanner which I would like to use with my laptop which has no parallel port but only usb ports. I purchased a Parallel to USB adaptor cable but it doesn't work with it. Probably it only works with a printer and not a scanner. Can you please help me how to sort out the problem??

Make sure you follow this step :
1. install driver USB to Paralel port (LPT1) before the cable connected to PC
2. After the driver installed, install the cable - and it supposed to be detected
3. the last think u have to do is install the scanner/printer driver

if it is not work, i guess the problem is on the USB to paralel adapter, or the driver not installed correctly

MiraScan quits when I try to load it in an image-editing software, like Photoshop. Why?


Try the program compatibility mode I think these scanner were made for 95/98 DOS machines and did not translate to EXP because of firmware differences.

How to hook up?


This scanner may have a parallel and a USB port. Use the USB port, if it exists. If not, connect the scanner to the parallel port, then connect the printer to the pass-through port on the scanner. This can be problematic, requiring changes to the BIOS and driver difficulties. A USB scanner is a better solution, and they are cheap nowadays.
