I finally solved the problem myself after three weeks of fruitlessly trying to get direction from Microtek. The few times that they actually answered my e-mail, they were courteous if not particularly helpful. One of their technicians was kind enough to send a proprietary SCSI card which solved some of the problems. I dealt with the rest by changing my video driver (of all things).
Now that it's working, this "Scanmaker E6 Pro" is a very nice unit; quiet, not too slow, and has excellent color rendition. The OCR program supplied with it however, (Caere's Omni Page) is marginal at best. It has trouble recognizing even typed characters and, when scanning a multi- columned document or table to Word Perfect, it loses the columns and creates a mish-mash all over the page. Oh well, at least the Adobe Photoshop Rev 3 is a dynamite program. It's great, and should be for the amount that it costs.
