I had a Plustec 9636T working on Win2K and recently change OS to XP.
The scanner works but the imagfes appear banded with multicolored lines. I've tries various drivers from - - which are said to work but in my case don't.
What shall I do?

This type of question belongs in the Technical Q&A section of the site.

One of the hidden costs of upgrading to XP is the cost of replacing hardware devices. Many scanners and printers just don't work properly, or have drivers for XP.

Your older PlusTek scanner is one of these.

PlusTek specifically states that their driver will not work under XP.

Since Windows 2000 is not listed as supported either, you may have just been lucky and the NT or Me driver worked for W2K.

You have 2 options:

Drop back to Windows 2000.

Buy a new scanner.

There are a number of advantages to having a USB port scanner over an EPP scanner.
