Ok, so I have this old Microtek scanner(parallel port) and I can install it and it will work flawlessly. Then a few days later I try to scan something and Omnipage cant see it any more. Its like it uninstalls itself after a couple days!!!! Its done this several times and Im going to show it my appreciation with physical violence if I cant fix it. The OS is XP Pro, and the device is a Microtek Scanmaster V310. The system sees it as a SCSI device when its working, but I hear this is normal when using multiple devices on one parallel port(my printer is on the same port). It seem that even rebooting does nothing. Like I said, Its as if the scanner just uninstalls itself after a couple of days. Windows wont see it either. Man it gets me irrate!! :mad:

Any help is appreciated.

Hmmmm. Ok. So its just kinda luck that it works for a couple days then huh? That sucks. I guess if I need to scan Ill just have to reinstall it each time lol.

Thanks
