Re: LS2208 scanner unrecognized by my HP notebook
It is not likely VISTA will run your scanner software as it is very old.
However you could check program compatibility mode
and set it to run as Win 95/8
Check compatibility in Start/Programs/Accessories
or go to my Computer Windows Help[ and type compatibility in the search field
But I don't think you will get far.

This is usually caused by a faulty USB handshake. The two most common causes are bad contact (i.e. bad USB port or cable) and interference inside USB hubs, especially the externally powered ones.
You can (usually) solve the problem by disconnecting the cable, waiting for the USB disconnect sound, and reconnecting the cable.
The real solution of course is to correct the hardware problem (which might be as easy as using another USB port, or as difficult as having the scanner replaced -- even if usually the problem is external to the device).
the director will appear to not be working if the scanner is not installed and recognized by Windows. A scanner icon will appear on the desktop if it is recognized by Windows. One likely reason it isn't being recognized is the power supply isn't putting out enough current, 1.25A, to force the correct signal level through the USB port. If the power supply is old, not plugged directly into the wall, or a substitute with the wrong current rating, the scanner will not send enough power through the USB port.
This solution worked for me when I got the USB device not recognized message: http://www.infobarrel.com/USB_Port_Repair It can be quite frustrating. I've heard that older computers are more likely to have the USB device not recognized message.
Check that the wedge is good. It is basically a hybrid spltter that powers both the scanner and the keyboard.
If so, you may want to go direct to either a serial port or a USB direct connection
