The Visioneer 6100 USB is an older flatbed image scanner designed for use with PC-compatible computers. It lacks compatibility with some major operating systems, especially pre-1998 and post-2000 versions.

Older Windows

According to the original installation guide, the 6100 USB requires a minimum of Microsoft Windows 98. The Visioneer website offers model-specific driver downloads for Windows 98, ME and 2000. It does not offer compatibility with the Windows 95 operating system.

Recent Windows

The manufacturer's website states that the 6100 USB is "Not Designed for Windows XP." Also, it makes no mention of compatibility with Windows Vista or Windows 7. Using a newer scanner with these operating systems or connecting the 6100 to a computer with 98/ME/2000 will yield the best results.

Other OS

The Visioneer website and installation guide do not provide any information on compatibility with Linux, Mac OS or other operating systems. They do not list any driver downloads for these platforms.
