A friend has given me his unwanted Optrox Photomaker 6F scanner, but that is literally all he gave me.. no cables, power adaptors or drivers. I have managed to locate win9x drivers for it on windrivers.com and installed them. The scanner has no power input to it. The only port on it is the parallel port through which it is connected to the PC. I am not just overlooking it either. There really is no other connection on the scanner other than the parallel. I cannot get the scanner to work at all. The power light on the front of the scanner does not come on and when trying to acquire through the TWAIN device with PSP 7, I receive an error message telling me that the device cannot be found and that either the data or power cables might not be connected properly. Can anyone advise me on this strange scanner please? Can a scanner be powered through a parallel connection alone?
