I hope I am doing the right thing in contacting you. I read a magazine article recently regarding a trick to start a SCSI scanner in WIN 95 without having to reboot the system. Despite searching as many magazines as possible I cannot find the answer, from memory you went to control panel held down the shift or ctrl key and double clicked the scanner icon, but I have either got it wrong or I can't make it work.

Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours faithfully

Ted: What kind of scanner do you have and what kind of scanner software are you using? Are you using a SCSI card that came with the scanner or one purchased separately. If purchased separately, whay make and model?
Best regards,
Dennis

Turn on your scanner.

Right click on My Computer. Select Properties. Select Device Manager. Select Computer. Click on Refresh.

If it's going to work it should show up in the Devices List after the Refresh.

Don't know what you mean by reinitialize. I just tried it on y own system. Booted with my Agfa scanner off. Turned it on. Did the refresh. Called up Fotolook which found the scanner. Seems to work here.
