You do not say what your system is, but at a guess it is XP or 2000

MS Dos[ 95/98/me] drivers do not work with NTFS[NT/2000/XP] systems you will have to go to the scanner makers site and look for a suitable driver.
However, you may not be lucky.
This is why, after having had several problems of this sort, with my flock's scanners, it seems the firmware in the scanner[the circuit board that controls the scan motor/stepper motor/resolution etc.,] is also system specific. This cannot be changed.
So it is likely a new Scanner for Christmas for you.
