I know this scanner is old, but, I would still like to get it to work. Sometimes it does, sometimes not.

Here is my curent setup:

~daisy chaining it thru a Minolta Scan Dual, and it's scsi card
~Using HP's DeskscanII 2.8 software
~Drivers installed are 1) HP Scanjet 4c/3c 4.00.008
and WIN98 installed (4) HP C2520A 4.00.008 drivers. Do not know why WIN98 has installed these drivers more than once after recognizing 'new device found'

Sometimes this scanner runs, but most times it hangs up after starting a scan thru Deskscan II. I then have to reboot to 'clear' the connection. I have also noticed if I 'jiggle' the SCSI cable, it will complete it's scan. But quite honestly I'm not sure if it is a cable problem or driver/software problem.

Anyone out there running this old scanner sucessfully on their PC with WIN98? I would love to hear from you, thanks.
