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.

Go to Microsoft.com and type "updates for W7" into the search bar. All updates available will appear and then you can see if the controller is listed. However, please note that hardly anything can be inter-changed between the two operating systems of XP and 7.

First, a power adapter is required to connect your scanner. the power adapter must be supplied with the scanner. If your scanjet 5470c scanner is having USB interface or connectivity, then you need USB cable and if it is SCSI interface, then you need SCSi cable to connect to your PC.

I purchased my Microtek ScanMaker 3800 many years ago. I still have the installation CD. Recently I purchased an HP laptop running Vista. My question: is it all right to plug in the scanner directly...


First connect your scanner to computer with usb cable.
Then insert disk in rom then install driver and software from disk.
It is not matter that first you connect scanner or install driver but if you connect scanner first your computer recognized it then you can install driver from disk.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Windows xp problem


Hi

It seems you installed an outdated (16bit Program) for the ScanMaker 4. 16Bit applications/programs and generally DOS based (Windows 3.x and 95) and will not run properly from Windows XP.

First, check http://support.microtek.com/product_dtl_2.phtml?prod_id=23 and download and install Drivers and Plugins for Windows XP.

You may need new 3rd Party Scanner/Image Applications that work in Windows XP. However, if you still want to use the 16Bit application then you will need to run the program in 16Bit Compatibility Mode. To do this, right-click the program executable or shortcut, choose propertise from the drop-down menu, go to the Compatibility Tab and put a tick in "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" From the drop down menu, choose Windows 95 or 98 and apply.

Finally, check the the User's Guide or ReadMe file(s) (if you have it) for more info. Especially, check the recommended OS for the Applications.

I might be wrong, but i think ScanMaker 4 has a SCSI interface. If this is correct, then your laptop or port replica must have a SCSI port. NB: SCSI is not the same as Printer LPT Port.

Regards
Mike

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...
