It depends on the model of your scanner, some manufacturers have a subsequent driver for any windows OS platforms, for newer OS like XP and Vista sometimes it is available.

most likely if you will tell me what brand and model we should be able to find an appropiate solution for this

Am looking at buying a friends 320 scanner, He cant find the booklet or cd 4 it. also doesn't have the parallel cable eather. Can i get this from the company? Also I havw windows xp. will this work on...


First you would need to make sure you have a parallel port on your computer, because if you don't, you would need to get an adapter of some sort for either a p2p or usb port, whichever you prefer. I'm not sure if you can get a parallel cable from the manufacture, but you could probably find it on eBay. With an older scanner and a newer computer, you can probably just plug it in and it will work, but if you need the software, go here: http://www.nodevice.com/driver/320P/get25293.html

Hope this helps!

How do i get my mustek 1200 iii ep flatbed scanner to work with windows xp. my computer restarts every time i clink on scan.


If you have the orginal software that came with your scaner and it says that it is compatible to Windows XP, you may need to use the disc to reinstall it. YOu will first need to turn off the scanner and unplug it from the PC. Then uninstall the old software from install/uninstall in your control panel. (start>control panel>install/uninstall programs, search the list for your scanner software.)

If you do not have the software or it is not for Windows XP:

There is the link to a site with a driver download specifically for your scanner, instructions on installing it for windows XP and also a link to answers to problems for your specific scanner.

http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/driv_scanr/english/1200ub.html
.
Before you begin any download make sure your virus control software is up to date.

First click on the link "Instructions for XP installation and print it out.
Next click on a driver for XP from the chart to download it. When a window pops up click save and browse until you locate desktop. Save this file to your desktop. It will be an .exe file.
Turn off your scanner and unplug it from your PC and uninstall the oldsoftware as advised above.
Click on your new driver file to install it. Follow instructions.
Once the driver is installed, plug the scanner back into the computer and turn it on.
Restart your computer.
It should now recognize your scanner.
Try a scan.

Loaded F4135 on an XP computer (older machine).


You need to have the XP drivers loaded. Try reinstalling the drivers. Unplug the printer from the computer before installing drivers.
Here is the troubleshooting page from HP.

Hp5300c scanner-can't use HP software on new PC (XP Pro SP3)


Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. If the HP software is not working correctly, then Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away. For Faxes, etc. import in outlook or other email client, etc.

Software upgrade?


It works fine on XP, I am using it with XP SP3 currently. You should download the current driver from Minolta. Install the software before hooking up the scanner. I prefer to remove any existing drivers and re-boot before installing new drivers.

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.

Mustek a3 usb 1200 pro scanner problem


I bought one a couple of years ago. After plenty of hit-miss after trying to get it to work on my fresh XP installations, I have a solution. Installing it the normal way simply doesn't work.

First, go to 'start', 'control panel' then 'system'. Click the 'hardware tab' then press 'device manager'. You'll see a list of hardware.

If your scanner is already plugged in, find it (it could be listed under 'imaging' or under 'other devices'. You should see a yellow exclamation point indicating it's there but not working.

If you go to 'control panel... system' first, and then plug in your scanner, it will pop up automatically.

Now, right click on it, select 'update driver'. A window pops up. Insert the CD, then select 'have disk' and install normally.

Installing the remaining software is optional (acrobat 4.05 and so on)

I've used the "Panel" to scan my pics. Working like a charm.
