W98se, scanning problems under-Unable

By fury57 ·
Scanning under W98se, and using latest chipset drivers (4in1429v) for a motherboard Asus A7V133, and using HP ScanJet5200c updated with latest Driver and conected to the USB ports, is allmost impossible to finish a scanning session, Is hanging for 3or 4 minutes before completing the scan, and or somentimes it hangs more than 3 to 6mts without finishing the scan, Win98se updated with USB patch (usbf108.exe) downloaded from microsoft, Bios USB enabled, no Irq conflicts, Using Cannon Printer BJC-8200 conected to the same USB ports functions perfectly, this happens not only when using Photoshop 5.0 it happens as well with Corel Draw 9. This is a challenge, Contacted USB Pci vendors, HP Technicians, Motherboard vendor and still no solution, (?), Thanks for any input regarding to this problem.

Well I don't necessarily expect to get this answer rated very well, but could it be a faulty scanner? If it has never worked, then I would have to say it's the scanner. HP generally has good products, and I'm sure they have sold MANY 5200c model scanners. Try putting it on another computer if possible.

Thanks Aaron, after taking the scanner again for a check up, it was found fine, it never cross my mind to do the check up again, but you pointed me to do it. I believe that Hp can not communicate well through the USB's. Now I have a Canon N1220U, and it works better than the HP!, no problems with the usb channels and like I said works flawlessly.
