Question about Mustek PARAGON 1200 SP Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

New motherboard not compatible with scanner.

I have an old Win95 computer used mostly for games, word processing and for scanning legal length documents etc. But, all things die. So I installed a new motherboard, new HDD and "updated" to Win 98. The bad news is the new motherboard can't use the SCSI card that came with the scanner. There are three different cable receptors on the back side of the machine. Can this scanner be connected to a serial port? Without a special card? Or is there a PCI card that can be connected to the scanner?

    I think you misunderstood my problem. I need to replace the card or find an alternate way to connect it to the new motherboard. I've also had to give up on Win98SE and am currently having XP installed. Thanks for trying.

I think you only need to download the driver. in the device manager, the card should come up as an unknown device. I f the card doesn't show then it may have fried too :(

Hi there - I have an older Mustek Plug-n-scan (includes Corel draw) Select Edition 600CP, probably purchased around 2000 but had only 18 months use - has been in storage since - what sort of price could I...


Most computer accessories, printers and scanners today use USB connectors between the unit and the computer. The older scanners do not have USB capability and will not be compatible with the newer computers. Only with add-on cards and cables can they be made to work.

As for selling it you would do better to donate it to Goodwill etc and get the tax donation slip for it.

If your scanner does have the newer USB connector, you will only have a $10 +/- scanner. The software, Corel Draw is outdated and not compatible with the new operating systems. There may be an update available from Corel which may require a prior product registration to qualify for. However most software packages included with printer and scanners etc are "SE" special editions, which are very basic trial versions and not the full featured retail versions.

I am rehooking scanner but don't have disc So is there any way to get the scanner to scan?


If you are using either WIN95 or WIN98 you cam go to the following URL:

http://download.driverguide.com/driver/F610/Envisions/d28959.html

Due to the age of the scanner you probably will not be able to find anything newer.

Scanner will not scan


http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SCANNER-Digital-CAMERA-WEBCAM/MICROTEK/MICROTEK-Scanner-ScanMaker-6000-590.shtml

that's the specific driver. download and install that. if you find that vista programs can now 'see' the scanner, but still don't 'know what the scanner is', then you can uninstall the driver again, and then go back to the exe. file and right click on it. Then click Properties. There is a chance that you will see a Compatibility tab. If you do, click that and choose XP compatibility mode from the list, press Apply, then ok. Then install it and reboot again.
If it still doesn't work, then either there is no Vista compatibility for your scanner, ie it's too old to use with anything later than xp, or you need to clean the pc and the registry up with something like ncleaner, which is free and a really handy program, i swear by it.

hope this helps

It doesn't appear to need anything in particular according to the data here:

http://www.xeroxscanners.com/downloads/manuals/DM510/DM510_datasheet.US.pdf

Since it isn't printing it, edge detection while feeding should select the .pdf file length without your intervention if it is inserted via the ADF.

If your manual is missing, you can download it here:

DR-9080C intermittent stops during scanning which last 3 to 5 minutes


Do you have enough hard disk space? Reinstall your driver software. Run Scandisk on the Comp.

Is the problem coming on after a set time interval, any heating smell?

Reinstalling 2400 scanner driver


If this scanner was previously used on a Win95/8/ME system the likely hood of it working with and NTFS[3000/XP] system is slim. This is because the two system work in different ways and the scanner design for 95/8 does not recognise commands from a NTFS computer. Two thing to try Go to Mt computer/Help/Compatibility and read it up. then right click on the scanner software and click on properties/compatibility and set it to Win98- see what happens You could checkout Xerox for driver updates also. But don't hold your breath

Install my scanner with winXP


In a word you cannot. Try the Acer site to see if they offer a suitable software conversion- but this late on it is not likely. You could try/Start/Programs/Accessories/Compatibility Wizard- then set the software you use to 'Run as 95/98 - it may work. What it amounts to is this- A scanner has its own processor that controls the scan tracking the capture device DPI and all that and in your case it is looking for DOS commands and XP is sending out NTFS commands - and they no speak to each other.
