The best way to proceed with scanner usb connection problems is to work through HP's USB setup troubleshooter at this Link

Let us know if we can help with any questions that may arise while working through their suggestions.

If you are using WinXP there is a patch/update at the HP website for this scanner. It will otherwise not work under XP. You have to install this before connecting the scanner. If you have already connected the scanner, just uninstall the software, then turn the computer of and disconnect the scanner. THen install the software and the patch/update before connecting the scanner.
