    Silly question, but are you turning the scanner on and letting it do it's little wake up routine before opening the software? That's what I need to do, otherwise the scanner isn't found by the software.

    Smack it. Might knock some sense into the little imp that runs the machine.

    That being said, unplug and replug is your friend.
