Hi friends :).
I need help. I have an old but still perfectly working parallel scanner Acer Prisa 620P.
Acer (now Benq) has released, time by time, the device drivers for all the windows o.s, xp included .
Now, after having installed windows vista, seems there is no way to make the scanner work :(.
I tried to install the driver for xp in compatibility mode, and I also tried any tricks I’ve been able to think to, but no way. The scanner is not recognized by vista .
I know, parallel scanners are old and slow, and new usb or firewire scanners might be found for not so much .
The truth is that:
- any cheap price should be too much for me, presently i’ve got some money difficult :o;
- the scanner is still perfect, so any possible way to make in work with vista shuld be wonderful for me ;).
I’ve installed vista in dual boot with xp, so I can use the scanner in the Xp environment, but it should be great to be able to use it in vista, because the parallel scanner I have is the only peripheral of mine, among the old ones i bought during the time, that I haven’t been able to make work in vista :a.
Does anybody have the same problem and foud a solution?
Grateful in advance for any suggestion. mikealfa
