"I'm going from a a Windows 98 system to a XP Pro system. Following install of drivers, the old error message is replaced by "The scanner is not connected. Please check the cable". I went onto my old Windows98 partition and the scanner worked fine.

"I tried this file first but without any success then - FixWinX1.exe partially solved the problem. It allowed the scanner to be recognised but the final message was that there maybe problems. Sure enough in device manager there was a yellow !

Had to use the "oem" driver from within the file BlackwidowscannerXPpatch64.zip which is also on this website.

"A big thanks to whoever produced this. There was some weirdness following the file-installation phase, but after reboot I plugged in the scanner and XP found its drivers.
