Trying to use scan pro and the message appears "sorry no scanner found,scanner not initialized" I followed the instructions on the HP web page under troubleshooting and I have the "regedit.exe" file in windows but I don't have "hpie.reg"  Even when this thing works if I shut down my computer I once again loose the scanner! What's up with this thing???

Hi Mad MAX I've found the problem to be a defective scanner. The scanner is a 6300 and using a usb, do you think it's worth going to a scsi card? Advansys offers a scsi card for this product only, for 59.95 let me know thanks John

John,
I have always preferred scsi to usb. scsi is faster and more reliable. The advansys card you mentioned is most likely a 915 pci card. The Advansys 915 scsi interface card is a stable, reliable little pci card that allows for irq sharing and works in most operating systems. I think the advansys card is a good answer.
 
Good luck,
Steve
