Most installations like this require you to run the install software first.
Then connect the device once the software gives the ok to attach.
Most devices today are USB and these can be plugged in hot.
IDE, Parallel, serial, PS2 etc are not. Meaning don't plug this in when the PC is powered up. Be ready to swap USB ports should the software not detect the device. This is rare but can happen.
USB 2.0 is a standard now with USB 3.0 on many newer machines.
If the Device can utilize USB 3.0 and your pc has this. Use it!
It is very fast and you can recognize a USB 3.0 part by the color.
It will be Blue inside. I have also installed scanners and other devices by connecting the USB cord, power up and then running the software.
Does not seem to matter to most devices now. But it is best to follow the instructions that came with the device.
Good luck and hope this helps!

Hi, I want to install both fujitsu fi 5750c and 5530C2 Scanners in same PC. OS is win XP. I tried through setup, but when one is installed, second one's setup says already having Scanner Utility...


There is no need of installing driver for fi-5530c2 scanner as the driver comes bendled in the fi-5750c scanner. Hence, please install the driver for fi-5750c.On the application, you need to chnage the scanner model under "Select Scanner" menu.

Hope the above information is helpful.

Thanks & regards,

Can't use my n650u scanner because the installation disk asks me to install the "Twain Driver" first. How do I do that?

You can try the following method:

Do not connect the scanner to the PC yet, first install the driver from CD, restart your PC. Then connect your scanner. Windows will hopefully recognize the scanner

Scanner installed but getting message can not communicate with pc

Have you loaded the scanner driver software on your PC? Is the printer connected to the PC using a known good cable plugged into the proper receptacles? Is the scanner plugged into a known good power source? Is the scanner turned on? If you use one of the USB ports, your PC should automatically display NEW HARDWARE FOUND on your screen, and willl then ask if you want to install it using the SCANNER AND CAMERA INSTALLATION WIZARD.. You can also left click mouse on WINDOWS START, left click on CONTROL PANEL, and left click on the SCANNERS AND CAMERAS ICON. A new window should appear. Follow the instructions on this SCANNERS AND CAMERAS window, and you should be able to get your scanner working.

Usually this is a problem with old (parrallel port ) H.P Scanners. Shut down your PC, remoce power of the scanner, remove the data cable of the scanner both at PC as well as at scanner end. Reboot the PC. reconnect the data cable and then the power cable ofthe scanner. Try using it. If you have win98, it should work now. If Win XP_P, reboot your PC, it should work. If the problem persists, try re-installing the drivers.
