Well, I too, have been having problems with my HP scanjet 5200c since installing windows xp.
Starting from the beginning, I bought the scanner some two years ago. Around six months ago, I encountered a random occurence of the scanner taking some five minutes to actually start its scan. This 'lag' then became the norm, with it taking five minutes each time I went to scan anything. It also left a dark area at the top of everything I scanned at this point.
I have recently upgraded my OS to Win XP, and as such, downloaded the new XP drivers from HP. Everything installed correctly, however, when I go to scan, it goes through its five minute motions then abruptly ends, saying that 'the scanner is not responding. Check its installation or run HP scanner test to determine the cause. [2093]'
I downloaded the new xp software (four times, mind you, because of drop outs) and completely replaced the old software, but am still stuck with the same error.
Concidering the scanner worked just fine (abliet the five minute wait) just before I upgraded, why does it all of a sudden cease to do its thing??? I have the scanner connected to my computer via the USB port.
If anyone can shed any light on this matter, please, please, please let me know so I can get back to scanning my art work.
