Working with the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard
Before trying to use the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard, you should first try connecting your scanner or camera to your computer and turning it on. If Windows recognizes your scanner or camera and installs the appropriate driver, you don't need to use the wizard. The Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard helps you to install drivers for older scanners and cameras—and some networked scanners—that are not automatically recognized by Windows.
To start the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard
Open the Scanners and Cameras wizard by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Scanners and Cameras.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
If you don't see your scanner or camera listed, ensure that it is connected to your computer and turned on, and then click Refresh.
If your device still isn't listed, click Add Device to start the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard, and then follow the instructions to install the necessary drivers.
The wizard will ask you to select your scanner or camera from a list. If your scanner or camera isn't listed, you will need to obtain drivers for it, either from the manufacturer's website or from a disc provided by the manufacturer, and then click Have Disk when asked to choose your scanner or camera.
