XP driver for black widow 9636 parallel scanner

  jcr 22:28 24 Mar 2003

i've just got a new computer with XP on it, and my black widow 9636 parallel port scanner will not work. tried looking for a driver without success, company gone bust, no driver developed.
i have seen a usb driver, can i get a converter lead and use it this way? what about loading w98 just for the scanner (dual boot?)? how would i do this? any help appreciated

yes, that's where i saw the usb driver, but my scanner is parallel port! i don't suppose it will work directly on the usb driver, will it? will a usb / parallel converter lead allow it to work? how much do they cost?
