Re: software and driver

You should be able to download the proper drivers for your Operating System directly from Microtek:

Since you didn't tell us which country you're located in, or which OS you're using, I can't provide any more specific information for you...

The Download page is located here, for users in the US:

From what I could determine, the X6 model was discontinued some time ago, and there were at least THREE versions of it; you'll have to find it listed under the Product Category in the Discontinued Products section, then choose the version (parallel port / EPP, SCSI, or USB), in order to download the driver you need. Seems that the SCSI version has drivers ONLY for Apple computers; if you're using Windows, you'll need to choose one of the other options...

Re: software and driver

I have a scanmaker x6 running on WinXP - it is connected via a PCI SCSI card inside the PC.
The scanner has to be on before booting the PC as the SCSI card reads any devices connected to it.
The SCSI card configuration (via CTRL+A) on booting PC, requires particular attention to settings but once saved and written down for posterity, all should be good for many years. I purchased mine when they first came out.
For any more info - you can contact me at

I need a copy of Manual and CD for Microtek ScanMaker 4700

I just downloaded the CD for my Microtek ScanMaker 4800 from I'm sure you can either download the correct one from them for your scanner, but if not, try the 4800 version. It came complete with the driver and the controller software, though it might not have any third party software with it. Seems to me it was about 49MB in size. The filename was Their file ID was 19703. Seems like a good site for driver downloads.

Microtek Scanmaker E3 Plus

If you have the driver - then it should access through any Image editor. Try Picasa which is free from Google Or the Serif web site for a free download of one of their older systems. Which ever you use there will be a considerable learning curve.

Microtek x6 scanner and lightlid instruction manuals

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.
