Scan via USB to computer

Product Name: VersaLink C505X
Operating System: Windows 7 x64

I'm trying to setup this MFP to run connected to a dedicated computer via USB.  So I want to print and scan directly from the PC via USB.  I can install the drivers for printing to work fine.  But the computer doesn't recognize the device as a scanner as well.

I have turned on the "Scan To Desktop" function (why does this need to be turned on through EWS for a USB connection?).  Everytime I press the "Scan to Desktop" app it gives me a message saying "No scan profiles are available".

I can't get the computer to recognize the device as a scanner.  I've installed every driver I can find:
TWAIN/WIA Scan Driver - XeroxScanExperience_7.1.24.0_x64.msi

The TWAIN drivers that came with the disk won't install because a newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 is already installed?


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: Scan via USB to computer

It doesn't scan via USB, the Scan to PC option scans over the network.

TWAIN/WIA is also scanning via the network., basically it scans to everything via a network connection, and that is why you enable everything via the Network port (EWS)

You can scan to a USB key, but that is it for the USB port
