I can't reinstall my OpticPoro scanner

  StupidCupid 13:32 10 Jul 07

I upgraded my OS to XP and now I cant get my scanner going again. The disc says it works for up to Win98 or something like that. Can anyone help please?

How old is it?

Is OpticPoro the correct name of your scanner?

I have an OpticPro9636P and that works OK with XP

  StupidCupid 16:31 10 Jul 07

Its' a 4830P and you're right I misspelled it.It is OpticPro. It must be 6 or 7 years old but it was working OK. Its' controlled by Action Manager program

I can only suggest that you uninstall it and reinstall again or after uninstalling just plug it in and see if XP finds it

I have an OpticPro UT12 Scanner bought in 2000, I had difficulty in mine when I installed XP. The way I got over the problem was to install its' software with the compatibility for Win 98 or ME checked.

I have one up in the attic, its a Driver Problem. I bought a Epson Perfection that will work. Also not as noisy and faster, better scans.

You are going to have a problem finding a Driver, if any

Thanx everyone but I got bogged down trying to get a new driver. Too long winded. I dont understand how to install the software with the compatibility thing
