Hi there

I have an Acer scanner, model 6699-OUE, which worked ok under windows 98 and
windows 2000 (via USB). It came packaged with some software called
"Mirascan" and "Scanbutton".

Now I have a computer with windows XP pro, and the scanner will not work. Is
there anyone who knows anything about this type of scanner and how I can get
it to work with windows XP?

Thanks,
Peter

This is the place to download software for what used to be Acer Scanners,
now Benq.

I do not see your model number.

If you have the software for Windows 2000, you should be able to get this
scanner to work under Windows XP Pro.

The Windows 2000 software should work, When XP gives the warning about the
driver not being signed, Click "Continue Anyway".

If this is a SCSI scanner, XP needs the ASPI package from Adaptec.

A lot of old scanners are supported in native Windows XP WIA.
Did you plug in the scanner and see if XP will load a limited driver?

Hi, thanks for the comments. I did find a site which had "acer-benq" drivers
(I wondered what the benq meant). The drivers had the same name "mirascan"
as what I used before, so I just downloaded and installed that. Then XP
could detect my scanner and it ran fine (and I clicked "continue anyway" as
you wrote). You are right about the model number - I just wrote down what is
written on the back of the scanner itself, but during installation I noticed
that windows called it a 6BU (or something like that, I can't remember
exactly now).

Acer is now Benq.
Go to http://www.benq.us/ServiceAndSupport/
Under Download. Drivers/Firmware. Scanner. Get the correct 620, there are
several.
