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.

Can't find scanner


Is the scanner visible in Device Manager? If not you have a hardware or connection issue.

Is the connection USB or network? If network have you checked TCP/IP settings? If USB are the USB items OK in Device manager?

Is it an old scanner connected to a new Windows version such as Win7. Some old scanners are not compatible.

Trying to connect to an HP Scanjet 4570c to a Dell Inspiron 1750 notebook computer. When I connected the USB cable, it said it updated some drivers, but there is no icon on the laptop to scan, and when I...


If you are under Windows 7 , it's because HP doesn't produce anymore drivers for your unit beyond VISTA .
Download the latest driver available from here : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=77368&
and try running your scanner with it . If you don't succeed , try in compatibility mode .
If it still doesn't work please don't blame me , blame HP .
Best regards .

Fujitsu fi-5750c Flatbed Scanner need to


The back panel of the scanner should have a USB connection to the right of the SCSI ID selection switch (the farthest right on the back). Just get from any source a standard male/male A/B USB cable.

Then get the correct drivers here: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/drivers/twain/v921720c.html . Additional software may be found here: http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/support/drivers-downloads_index.html

I hope this helps.

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

Cannot detect scanner


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.

Good Luck.

If all else fails goto goodwill and get a usb scanner. I always see stacks of them. Most are the usb type.
