I've just completed re-installation of the files that AVASYS says are needed, making sure I installed the correct ones for PCLOS. I opened up PCC and tried to set up the scanner but again it isn't recognized. It appears that my luck finally ran out with this scanner and nothing I can do will get it recognized. Like I said, maybe it's time to move on to a new scanner but I hate to spend the $. Thanks for all of your time.
