I have a Microtek ScanMaker scanner which is connected to the computer with a USB . But it also needs a power adapter. It says on the back to use only power supplies (AC/DC adapter) listed in the user instructions.. Since I don't have the user instructions or the adapter I'm not sure what kind of adapter I need to get. On the back it says: Microtek TYPE - 2400l48U +12V==1.25A. Can I use a universal adapter? or do I need to buy an adapter from the Microtek company?
OK WELL I HAVE A MICROTEK SLIMSCAN C3 AND I HAVE THE CABLE FOR THE POWER AND FOR USB......BUT MY PROBLEM IS THAT I DON'T HAVE THE CD TO INSTALL THIS.
IS THERE ANY ONTHER WAY TO INSTALL THIS IN MY COMPUTER WITH OUT THE CD??????

You can download: ScanWizard 5 version 6.63
Here: ftp://microtek:[email protected]/microtek/pcfiles/drv_sw5_v6_63_ad.exe
Extract to folder on desktop.
1. Plug in your Scanner
2. Go to Control Panel (Windows 7 - 64 and 32 bit)
3. Go to Device Manager
4. Go to Imaging devices (or Other devices)
5. 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 .. ;)
Does the unit need an adaptor or just an AC power cord?
If it has an input jack similar to other DC input devices that use a 'wall wart' type with a large plug (actually a primitive power supply), you need to determine what voltage and current it needs.
If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.
I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.
