Black window 9636 scanner

This Scanner works great with 98 OS, but not with XP OS. Does anyone know a if I can get the scanner to work with XPHome or XP Pro OS.

update this scanner was retailed by Devcon International Ltd.
They stopted trading a few years back.

This scanner scans in 3D, most of the software now is for XP only, so this why I would like to try to get working under XP OS.

try using the compatable os wizard in xp and see if setting it to work as 98se does the trick.

A friend has a Black Widow scanner, I managed to get it working with a windows 2000 driver from click here.

I had a similar scanner, built, I beleive by Pacific Image Electronics and called by them the 1236. There are three models 1236 U,P or S. U =Usb - P = Parallel - S = SCSI interface.

I had my 1236S working under WinXP - you can look for drivers on their driver page here click here
