Support for Windows XP will end on April 8th 2014.
If you have an older scanner that is connected to a PC running XP, you may not be aware that your scanner will not work and/or be supported with Windows 7 or Windows 8. If your scanner is connected to the PC via SCSI (a thicker cable running from the scanner that connects to a card installed in the PC), your current configuration will not work with any 64-bit operating system.
Some models of scanners have both a SCSI and a USB connection that can be used, while others only have SCSI. If your scanner has both and you are currently using SCSI, you may be able to convert to USB, however additional software may be required. If your scanner has a USB connection it doesn’t guarantee that it will work or be supported on newer version of Windows, as scanner manufactures are not updating drivers for older discontinued models.
Here are a few examples of scanner models that will not work and/or are not supported on Windows 7.
If you have one of these or are not sure if your scanner is compatible with current operating systems, contact Dan Krahn at 800-242-1777 or firstname.lastname@example.org or your Account Manager.

What is pain? Pain is physical suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury. Pain motivates you to withdraw from damaging situations, to protect your body and to avoid similar experiences in the future. How many times do we have pain but ignore it? I know I have. I was running a 5K and BAM about half way through I […]
We hear it all the time…everyone is striving to achieve work life balance. But what does that really mean? Finding time for yourself? Making your personal life easier? More convenient? Spending more time with family? Creating more time for hobbies or friends? It can be all of those things and more. When you really think about “life”, we have access […]
