Installation can be very simple, or it can be very problematic. I had the pleasure of experiencing both.

DO NOT CONNECT YOUR SCANSNAP TO YOUR COMPUTER
WITHOUT FIRST INSTALLING SOFTWARE

Fujitsu has a yellow sticker over the back of the ScanSnap's USB connector port, saying to install the software first before connecting the ScanSnap to a USB port. Normally, you would think Windows XP would be able to handle a USB connection without first installing software. In this case, it is simply not possible. Imaging devices are one of the most tempermental installations for computers, and there is usually a very specific order and method to installing them.

The ScanSnap is one of those devices where you must follow Fujitsu's installation routines, word by word. Currently, there are no exceptions. So, when you purchase your ScanSnap, follow Fujitsu's instructions. They will save you a lot of troubleshooting problems.
