I got a scanner from my mother but she doesn't know the manufacturer or model. (She got it second hand and never used it). No markings except the FCC and U/L tags. any ideas how i can get it working. I have Win XP but it didn't find my scanner.

Have you done a search on the FCC ID code (and what are they)? I've found drivers with that method before.

Is it a parallel port scanner or a USB scanner?

I stumbled on that in a Google search but I can't figure out which number it would beon my scanner.

Is it a parallel port scanner or a USB scanner?

parallel port

When I entered "JSF-FB262" into a search engine it told me the make and model of my scanner.

Just try each of the numbers and see what you get. Then it is simply a matter of looking through the results until you find either the manufacturers site or a general driver site.

As it is parallel port, it will likely only respond when a certain control code is sent down the line, hence XP can't detect it and you need the driver in order to see the device.
