Question about Microtek ScanMaker X6 Flatbed Scanner
I was given a scanmaker x6, however I do not have the software to use it...what do i need to do??
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...

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 email@example.com
