    Don't think it's possible, the tablet won't have any software installed on it to cope with the hardware your attaching to it.

    Welcome to Android Central! You could do it easily on your Windows tablet because it was running Windows--which has the drivers for that scanner (since the scanner was designed for Windows and Mac). Devices like that typically aren't designed for use with Android.
