PhotoSuite 4

  User-178362 23:10 03 Aug 2006

Just wondered if you can help please, I have just had my PC sorted to genuine windows, now I am having difficulty in scanning, I go into Photosuite click on Scan, program freezers. the only way out is Ctrl Alt Delete. Do you think I might not have put the cables in wrong, scanner problem or program trouble. I have downloaded pic of my camera no prob, I scanned one pic then it packed up on me. I had the overheating looked at so I dout if its that. I have Epson Perfection 3170 Photo.

I had the same problem with my 3170 scanner. Although I don't use Photosuite I use Paint Shop Pro or the Epson Smart Panel. I found I had to keep re-installing the scanner software every couple of days.

Epson told me to update the scanner software from their website. Having done that I have not had any more problems.

Do you mean I have to click on Driver and software downloads for XP? I didn't know you could update scanner software, I thought what you bought is what you had. I have had my scanner one year now but I do not use it very often, but have never had any problems with-it until now.

Yes, just download Epson Scan 2.6zg an save it to your hard drive.

Make a note of the file name and where you save it to. eg. I have a Folder called "Downloads" so that I know where to look for anything I download from the Internet.

Once you have downloaded it you will need to run it.

Just tried to download 3 times, but a message came up saying File download of epson 27352eu.exe was not completed, due to unexpected server response.

I still have the file on my computer but it is an .exe file which your ISP may not allow through.

I can zip it up and email it to you. If you want to try that please email me via the envelope.

Have tried to email this zip file to you twice now but it doesn't work. I can put it on a CD and post it to you if you like. Email me again if you would like me to do that.
