Re: usb 1.0 or usb 2,flatbed scanner compatability
Find a USB device, such as a memory-stick, that is "USB 2.0" and connect it to a USB port. If Windows XP pops-up a window ("this device will perform better when connected to a USB 2.0 port"), then you have connected it to a USB 1.1 port.
Yes, you can connect a scanner, if it has a USB connection. Not all laptops have a parallel-port ("old-style" printer) port, but some scanners require a parallel-port.

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
There is going to be issues with connecting it in this fashion. The usb adapters are not addressed the same as a real parallel port. This means that the drivers probably do not have a chance at working. The other issue is usb ports on laptops rarely have the power to drive devices larger than a mouse or keyboard. This means that the usb adaptor may not have enough power to function. Try plugging it into a powered usb hub then to the laptop. This may give it enough power to do what you want if the drivers are compatible of course.
If all else fails goto goodwill and get a usb scanner. I always see stacks of them. Most are the usb type.
My done the same way, but it just stop working one day after doing a windows download. At that time they was a download that work fine and it is still working, I forgot what web site I went to, but it was a Memorex site.
