Is your OS XP if so you will need the correct driver

Thanks Woodchip Yes it was OK on my old Windows 98
but now on my new XP PC it appears as you say to need a driver but I cant seem to find one for this scanner. Perhaps you know a way round this ?

Try a Windows 2000 driver if you can't find one for XP.

Thanks MAJ Ill try the one you suggest. I havnt down loaded one before. Do you mind guideing me through the download and how I get it to the scanner !!!!!!

Click your right mouse button on the link "Download This File" and then click on "Save Target As", save the file to a folder on your desktop. It is a zip file, so when its downloaded, right click it and choose "Extract Files". Then when Windows detects your scanner and asks for the drivers, point it at that folder into which you extracted the files. It should find the files and load them.

Thanks again MAJ and woodchip Well I have got as far as downloading the file but when I got to the end of the download and the window was staring me in the face I wasnt sure then what to do. I clicked on various things but unfortunately I didnt find where it asks for the drivers. Sorry to be a pain and I know you have been quite explicit but could you treat me as a 10year old, no make that 3 !!!!

Should I have the scanner plugged in when finding a driver.

So sorry I meant Windows EX and not EP. Just noticed.
