Primax Colorado scanner usb 9600

  Dopey74 10:09 06 Jun 2005

I am looking for informatiion as to how I can get my Primax scanner to work on XP Professional, the scanner came with my Tiny computer but the motherboard went and I had to get a new computer and it came with XP Professional, but when I tried to connect my scanner it only registers as a cammera and I want to know if I need a new scanner or is there some software I can obtain to fix the problem.
Thanks in advance Jubby

You could try downloading another driver from the 4 that are listed on Driverguide.

If you are asked for a login ID it is "drivers" and the password is "all" without the quotes.

As far as I know Primax is now part of Visioneer.If you go to Visioneer web site you may find something on there. I have the same scanner and have never got it to work on xp. I had the same problem with a Canon scanner. Bought a Xerox scanner (made by Visioneer for Xerox) and have had no trouble. Scanners are so cheap that not worth the hassle of trying to get the others to work.

This has been asked before about this particular scanner and the person who asked never got it to work but good luck anyway. My scanner didn't work on XP either, managed to get it to work using a Windows 2000 driver, XP came up with the usual warning but since the scanner works and causes no problems I've just been able to ignore it.

Thank you all for your assistance, I took the easy option, after trying your suggestions (without success I might add), and bought a new scanner. Again thank you all
