Re: [fhctech] Re: Dell/Cannon scanner combo problems. Can't burn CDs, now comp won't stay on.
- I realize this is an old message, but thought this might help.
When we first got our system, I couldn't get the librarians to remember to
turn on the scanner first then the computer. Being a SCSI connection meant
nothing to them. So, I plugged it all into a power strip they can access
and tell them to turn on the system from there. The scanner is ready long
before the computer starts to boot up and sees it just fine. No problems
since with the scanner being turned on first.
