    You need ot download the drivers and install them.

    Somewhere on the scanner there should be written from which manufacturer it is and the model name. If you find these you can download the drivers form the net.

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines

    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to there level and beat you with experience!!

    If it's a USB scanner Win/XP should automatically recognize a newly connected device. If you're having problems finding/installing drivers try connecting it while on-line and let XP find the drivers for you.

    If all else fails you may be stuck since a lot of older(even if just a few years) scanners aren't compatible with Win/XP.

    Good luck with it...
