I have an old flatbed scanner that is powered by USB2. Sadly it is not compatible with Windows 7, so because i have Windows 7 Ultimate, i have installed Windows XP Mode.
However when the scanner is plugged into a USB3 port on my PC (I only have USB3 Ports) the Windows XP Mode will not attach the scanner, it says device error.
What i have done at the moment is used an onboard USB2 connector to plug in a USB2 extension cable, one of these basically...
In an ideal world though, the scanner would be able to work connected to a USB3 Port, is there a certain USB3 driver i can download or update so it works with older devices better? or is it because the scanner is USB Powered, the voltage on USB3 is different?
Any help would be great,
