Epson V700 scanner and Abbyy Fine Reader 6 Sprint

  m800afc 18:25 09 Dec 2007

I have just invested in an Epson Perfection V700 Photo. Having installed all the software everything seems to be fine with the exception of Abbyy Fine Reader 6 Sprint. No matter what I try I cannot get past a dialog box which states:

"Unable to communicate with the film scanner. Try the following: Make sure the scanner power is on. Check all cables. Refer to the Users Manual on the CD as needed"

I am able to scan and print normally so I know that the cables, power etc are OK. I cannot do OCR direct from a scan, or from a previously scanned image from my old scanner. I am assuming there is a software conflict with Abbyy Fine Reader 6 Sprint.

I am using Win XP Pro.

In Abbyy Fine Reader 6 Sprint, try File - Select Scanner, and check that the right scanner is selected.

Thanks for the suggestion. Worked first time.
