Microtek Scanmaker X6EL

I have an HP computer, purchased in 06, My question is do I need the Adapter 2902 SCSI Interface Card. Also, can I us USB, I know I would have to get an adapter for the cable, since the scanner has 2 SCSI ports and 1 Serial, of course the only port left on my computer is a USB. In short can I still use the scanner?

Yes you can still use the scanner. The beauty of todays technology is that there are adapters for everything. You can get a SCSI to USB adapter for just a few dollars at most best buy stores.

Find what windows have installed Right Click 6. Update Driver Software.. 7. Click - Browse my computer for driver software 8. Click - Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer 9. Click - Have Disk 10. Browse to your desktop or position where you extracted 6.63, point to "....drv_sw5_v6_63_ad\Disk1\Vista\AMD64\..." Pick any of INF files I picked first 11. You will see 4800 Scanner and USB 2.0 Scanner, I picked first 4800 then USB 2.0 and both works.
I managed before to do it with simple install but well, it works .. ;)

Software and driver


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

http://www.microtek.com/

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:

http://support.microtek.com/downloads/

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...

THE PROPER WAY ON INSTALLING USB DEVICES A. Enable usb ports on the BIOS. 1. Do not plug in your device right away. Install all drivers and software first! 2. Reboot 3. Plug the power or turn on your USB Device 4. Plug in the USB Port. 5. Windows Will detect the Device Automatically. Finish! Hope this helps.
