The normal procedure is to install the driver software without the device installed, then plug in the device and reboot. That gives the plug and play something to work with.

Some USB devices are very temperamental as to their power requirements. If your PC has a minimal power supply and/or you have a high power graphics card, insufficient power could be being delivered to the USB device.

The easiest way to test this is to use a powered USB hub between the scanner and the PC.

on my pc with xp

I know this sounds silly but my scanner has to be on before I boot up the computer in order for it to be recognized, so does my external zip drive, I was told by micro tec that is a common fact with pcs and xp.
