Software and hookup problems with dell vostro 400

Have HP5200C scanner and a dell vostro400 with Vista(32bit)
When I attempt to install software from CD .... it loads and
than asked me to hook-up parallel cable. I have both usb and
parallel cables ... but my vostro only has usb ports. If I use the
usb cable ..... the installation is not completed and the scanner
is unuseable. Do I have a solution....or do I buy a new scanner?

Try this: There is a newer driver on the HP site...Sj662dn...for windows xp, sp2, download it and run it. It will take you through setup again...this time installing the drivers for your usb cable. Make sure you set your compatibiliy at windows xp sp2.

Problem is...this may not help getting your scanner to work. Mine's driving me nuts.

Good luck

Add a pci parallel card such as this to your vostro. www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=512
This will enable you to connect your scanner. Tiger direct will give you closeups of the connections on the interface card so you can check you have the right one.

I tried to use my Canon 4200f with windows vista 32bit and get the usual error.


Hello,
This scanner does work with Vista, as well as Windows 7. I have the exact same one. Goto Canon's website and download the latest driver for Vista. Here is the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_4200f#DriversAndSoftware
Download and install the driver and the CanoScan Toolbox software.
Regards, Chris

Digital persona is not supporting vista, kindly give solution for the same


Markata, Your operation system (Vista) is supported but it must be 32bit version if u r using your scanner on jamb website. You will need a - You to provide 16 characters security key. - biometric license and - JAMB Biometrics Capture/uploader software. - Your operating System software must be 32bit(XP, Vista, Win7)
* The biometric license gives you authentication while the JAMB Biometrics Capturesoftware allows you to capture thumb-print even when there is no internet connection(offline) and automatically upload them to server when the internet is back.
You can thumb-print as many student as you can (I have seen a client who thumb-printed as many as 2000 in 3days).
We give technical advise and we have several license in stock to give away. While not call us today, if the problem is still persisting. Call 08132829820 or email us on biometricmasters2000-jamb@yahoo.com

I have a canon n122ou n65ou n656u flatbed scanner and i have a new laptop gateway windows 7 and it said could not detect device, it did not download what is wrong?


Looks as if that scanner is not compatible with windows 7. Best thing to do to verify it, go to this site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6858

Even though your running windows 7, choose vista as your OS.

Then download the software and see if it will install. If it installs then your good to go. I've had other hardware that wouldn't work with windows 7 but yet i go to install the vista drivers and i've gotten stuff to work. Give it a try so you know for sure.

Decided I would be spending more time and effort than this scanner was worth. I went and purchased an Epsom. My plan is to rid my house of everything HP. They are not the company they were for so many years, must be the cost accountants are running the show.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.
