  • If you are using a desktop PC, please make sure that the scanner is plugged into the USB slots on the back side of your computer.
  • Experiment with different USB ports. The idea is to find a port with the best performance.
  • Make sure that no other devices are connected to the same USB controller (especially USB wi-fi dongles and USB drawing pads)
  • Generally, we do not encourage the use of USB extenders. However, if you do require a USB extender, please refer to this article for more information and a list of USB extenders that we have personally tested.
  • In case of USB-related issues, we recommend updating the drivers of your USB chipset to the latest version.
