  1. Possibly the webcam is pulling too much power off the USB socket. Try disconnecting the webcam and see if the other devices then work. If so, try adding a USB hub with a power unit.

    Tried that still not coming up in control panel. Its obviously something to do with the introduction of the webcam, which I use But I do need the scanner I dont know if I can operate in a different mode.
  3. Try reinstalling the scanner's software.
  4. I will try that thanks
