"I went thru this driver in detail, Im a certified tech, its great for USB but it doesnt support printer port models at all and its weak with SCSI, you have to have very SPECIFIC models of SCSI cards ie it works with an AHA 1542 A but not a B or C, it also dont like the AHA 1505 or 2940, or Future Domaine SCSI cards at all, works somewhat with BUSLOGIC SCSI cards"

"This driver is for SCSI and USB type scanners. My 2000P wasn't recognized. This file expands to 21meg which is great if you need this driver. Compared to the 21 meg download of other drivers on this site. I was able to use the exe file that is in Disk one when expanded on another driver that had this file corrupted. This worked for getting this crappy scanner to work.
