already asked. Not with standard TP/DOS (of course), but there are solutions. Search in PAQ.

Check out some TWAIN stuff there is some VCL packages for Delphi to connect to TWAIN compatible devices search the internet for it. Also check out ABOUT.com and borland and search for TWAIN in these.

Hope you get there. Good luck

You cannot.
There is no such thing as a USB port. USB is a serial bus not a serial line. You address devices on the bus.
USB printers create a virtual port in Windows so you print to a USB printer like to any other.
For DOS there is no USB support at all.
