How can I get my Microtek Scanmaker III SCSI scanner to work on Vista x64
Posted on 2009-02-17
Does anyone know how to get a Microtek Scanmaker III SCSI scanner to work on Vista x64 ? I have an Adaptec 2940UW SCSI card. The scanner was working perfectly fine on Windows XP 32bit and Vista 32bit on the exact same hardware. I just installed Vista x64 on the computer and the only thing that I cannot get to work is my scanner.
I have tried various instances of Scanwizard but none of them recognizes the SCSI card (I only have "Image still device" in the list for Scanner Check). The SCSI card is seen in Vista64 by device manager (no red X or yellow check mark) using the 7800 emulation driver.
Of course, getting a more recent scanner could be an option, but I am trying to avoid to spend $500+ right now on this (it's a legal-sized scanner, hard to find and/or expansive).
