What OS you using?
Did you use the LPT port previously?
Have you downloaded update drivers for the printer?

To get you going

Remove scanner from control panel, (add/remove programs), and any drivers for scanner, reboot and let windows find scanner and then install drivers again.

you cannot use a pass through parallel port scanner with a usb printer it needs connecting to parallel port direct
