scsi card and scanner not seen in xp mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed xp mode because my olded scanner and application do not work on win 7 pro. Win 7 see's my adapted 29160 card and the scanner but the software can not see the scanner.

    So now in XP mode I can see the scsi card (or scanner) and even though I have a driver for the card XP mode does not allow the inf file to display the device. Very odd. I can see the file I can browse the file but I can not load the file.

    I can see the scsi drives in xpmode attached to the other card. Any thoughts on how to make my scanner visable in xp mode?

  • Windows Virtual PC doesn't support SCSI passthrough, it can see the
    drives not by them being SCSI, but because the host shares them.
