Angry Optrox scanner Photomaker BE+

As I am new to the site this question may hve been answered already.

I have up graded from Windows 98 to XP and cannot get the scanner to work. I have loaded it several times bet nothing happens, it just sits there. I have checked the power supply (15.5v) and that is ok.. any help is welcome.

How old is the scanner? Its likely if it hasn't worked so far that it just doesn't like XP; some older perhipherals don't.

It sounds too old; does the Printer come with a Windows XP Driver? You could always look on the manurfacturer's site for one maybe?
