Installing a Scanner, Camera, or Video Source

If you have a source device supported by Windows XP, then all you have to do is connect it to your system and let the plug-and-play functionality detect the device. If the source device is not one supported by Windows XP, you may need to obtain a driver from the manufacturer. This can be in the form of a floppy disk or CD-ROM, if it is a new device. For older devices, you may need to download a new driver from the manufacturer that was created for Windows XP. In any case, connecting a scanner should be a simple task. For devices that connect using a Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) card, you may need to install that hardware along with any software that comes with the product before you can connect your source device.

If your input device is one supported by Windows XP and you can check the Hardware Compatibility List at http://www.microsoft.com, then you should have no problems. Otherwise, you should insert the diskette or CD-ROM that comes with your device and follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
