Following on from previous post on this subject Hi. I have just bought a slide scanner click here but having problems getting it to work on HP Pavilion DV6000 laptop Vista home premium SP1. I have followed instructions and loaded driver and Arcsoft photoimpressions6 from installation disc. When I open A/soft I can't get scanner to calibrate. All I get is a VERY brief flash of calibration window and then mane window. When I click on aquire picture nothing happens. I have loaded all on my old desktop running XP and although slow all works Ok. I have checked device manager which says scanner is OK All drivers are up to date. I don't know whether problem is with laptop,scanner or Arcsoft I now have scanner working. However I would like to try using different software but none that I try will recognise that scanner is connected. It shows in device manager under imaging devices but not in cameras and scanners in control panel.
Sorry but it isn't working if it doesn't show up in the control panel as a scanner. However I think that this is basically a camera taking photos of the slides. Try treating it as a camera. I've never used a scanner like the one that you have.
click here Is frequently offer in the Special offers pages of the weekend papers. It generally perceived to be of poor quality and is known to have driver/software issues with XP/VISTA The best way out out of this is to send it back as of 'not fit'
Then purchase a regular brand scanner with light in lid capability for much the same price.
Hi, a friend has one of these and he had to disable the camera on his laptop as there seems to be a conflict between the devices. He then loaded the scanner again after disabling the webcam. Hope this helps.
witless Sorry to be vague but I don't know what I did to get it working !! I just persevered with it. I kept doing it as per the instruction book. I then uninstalled it and then connected it to PC and let it do its own thing. Eventually it just worked!
