You will need an adapter like this one. But first make sure you have the current drivers available on the scanner before you connect the adapter. Refer this site for the drivers and instructions.

How to make any Acer/BenQ/Vuego/Brisa parallel port scanner work in Windows XP (note: this procedure does not work in Windows 7 or Vista, only in XP):

Instructions for installing Acer brand parallel port scanners in Windows XP:
For this driver to work in XP you must install the MiraScan software then install the scanner manually.
Step 1. Download MiraScan v3.424 from the web: ftp://12.145.38.159/scanner/drivers/parallel/mirascanv3424p.zip

Step 2. Unzip and install the Mira Scan driver that you just downloaded. After installation , system will suggest you to add a scanner
Step 3. Then, add an imaging device
Step 4. Then the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard comes up. Click Next at the bottom.
Step 5. Then on Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard screen it will ask you which scanner or camera do you want to install? You want to go where it says "Manufacturer" and then click on "EPPSCANNER" and where it says "Model" it should say "color flatbedscanner". Make sure it is highlighted, also. Click on Next at the bottom.
Note: For additional screen shots of this procedure and installation procedures, please read the pdf file posted here: ftp://12.145.38.159/scanner/manuals/scpinwxp-eng.pdf

The Screenshots show to be for Mirascan v3.423 but the procedure is same for v3.424
Note: Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view or print this file.

Note: This solution does not work on all computers but many report success with it. The hang-up is caused from certain chipsets in the computer motherboard.

Cable connectivity with my laptop through a "parallel to usb cable". My laptop has no parallel port but only usb ports.


make sure you follow this step :
1. install driver USB to Paralel port (LPT1) before the cable connected to PC
2. After the driver installed, install the cable - and it supposed to be detected
3. the last think u have to do is install the scanner/printer driver

if it is not work, i guess the problem is on the USB to paralel adapter, or the driver not installed correctly

MiraScan quits when I try to load it in an image-editing software, like Photoshop. Why?


Try the program compatibility mode I think these scanner were made for 95/98 DOS machines and did not translate to EXP because of firmware differences.

How to hook up?


This scanner may have a parallel and a USB port. Use the USB port, if it exists. If not, connect the scanner to the parallel port, then connect the printer to the pass-through port on the scanner. This can be problematic, requiring changes to the BIOS and driver difficulties. A USB scanner is a better solution, and they are cheap nowadays.
