The only issue I see is if you have any scanning software that automatically identifies the scanner. Me, I use the 'Scanners & Cameras' wizard to capture images from my scanner, so I imagine that, that way, you'd be able to choose what scanner you want to use.

Yes it should work okay. it may have a Drop Down on which scanner to use, but it should load a Desktop Scanner icon, I suggest you delete any Scanner Icons on the desktop before loading software for the new one. then you know its the correct one that you are double clicking on

If you use the Acquire in a Program it should be in a list showing both scanners. You need to test to find out the scanner that works in the program
