I just installed win 2k pro. It does not seem to see my printer and scanner. (both on the same parallel port.) They worked fine before on win 98. Any clues to why this is? I downloaded drivers for them, but windows does not even see them. thanks, Barret.

Hiya

Have you got the latest drivers that are compatable with Windows 2000? If not, that may be the reason.

For your scanner:

Yours is right at the bottom.

No, as for the printer, I couldn't find any at the site:

http://www.xerox.com/go/xrx/templat...rt&Xcntry=USA&Xlang=en_US&Xseg=corp&prodID=C6

Took a while, but I think I have one.

Comments
This driver also works for the Docuprint C6 under Win2000. Xerox isn't willing to make an driver for this printer and w2k
