Samsung SCX-4100 & Vista?

    Setup: Samsung SCX-4100 MFD connected to a Windows Vista Business
    computer via the USB port.

    When I try to install the scanner, Windows Vista Business sees this as
    a XEROX Workcenter Pro Scanner and installed that driver, which does
    not work. Now I did install the Samsung 32-bit scanner drivers for
    Vista, but I still wind up with the "XEROX Workcenter Pro Scanner".

    However, once installed, Samsung's "SmarThru" application (for
    Vista-32) it sees it and lets me scan.

    Q1> Any secret to get this device to be recognized as a scanner by
    Vista?

    Q2> Any secret to get "Windows Fax and Scan" application see this
    device?

  2. The secret is probably to install the driver software BEFORE connecting the
    All in One to the PC. Uninstall and reinstall.... and see if it works
    correctly after doing it the correct way round.
