Ascertain that the computer recognizes scanner connection. For example, once ascertained the device connections to circuits been attained, trace the connections to the computer also from where programs should recognize the new feature required.

Scanner has racheting noise and red light stays

This noise is caused by the transport lock. Power the scanner off. Lock and unlock the transport lock a few times and then leave it in the unlocked position again and power on.

Error message on attempt to scan: "Instruction at "0x673328c8" referenced memory at "0x21900668". The memory could not be "read"." need fix.

I must blush to say that I reviewed the error messages more closely and discovered that the solution was with an application, not the scanner. Thanks tremendously for your prompt attention.
