Epson Scanner 3490 Photo and USB2 port

  Josh123 17:44 28 Dec 2005

A few months ago I installed a Ali M5273 PCI card to provide a USB2 capability on my Evesham 2200 which originally only came with USB1 ports. I have successfully connected devices (eg Pentax camera) through the new ports.
However I have now tried, and failed, to connect an Epson 3490 scanner via one of the USB2 ports.
It will successfully operate via the USB1 port - after first ignoring XP's advice to connect using one of the faster USB2 ports.
Unfortunately I don't have any other USB2 devices to further check out the ports.
Has anyone got any suggestions ?

Hi, it is possible that you actually connected the scanner before installing the software - if so, this is probably your problem. Uninstall software, disconnect scanner, then re-install software and last of all re-connect scanner.

Good luck - it is a great scanner, I have the same, in a usb2 port.

Happy new year.

I did not connect the scanner until after I had installed the software.
If I had connected the scanner first, would this have allowed the scnner to work on a USB1 port but not on a USB2 port ?
And a Happy New Year to you !
