Vupoint FS-C1-VP scanner installed

Software apparently does not recognize or XP does not recognize the Vupoint Scanner. I have not been able to use it.
There is an OVT Scanner listed among my programs.

    I bought it and used in XP about a year ago but cannot now use it with XP; some driver is not now available or changes made to XP now prevent it's use.

    Have installed software including driver but when opening PhotoImpressions program to begin scanning computer will not recognize anything connected to USB port. Displays OVT Scanner as default.

    I have the same problem. I am very frustrated!

    I have a vupoint scanner. Worked fine initially. Now I cannot get the computer to recognize that the physical scanner exists. I've tried to reinstall the software. It seemed to be successful. Turned the computer off and back on. Plugged in the scanner and the computer did not recognize that a scanner had been attached.

    I can get the scanner to display the negative in Windows Explorer (it is a live enlargement, sort of like I'm looking in a telescope... but if I wanted a blown up negative, I could have just used my photo scanner. Photo Impression acknowledges that I have an OVT scanner, and I can click on "calibrate" and "acquire", but nothing happens at all. I got a "blue screen" once when I left the Windows Explorer "microscope" view on for a few minutes. I've tried removing the scanner in device manager and reinstalling drivers... to no avail. The have ZERO FAQs and T-shooting support on their website. Why are there so many problems and NO answers on this page?? Is this thing a piece of junk? What are we all missing?

  • lostrufos2 Jan 05, 2009

    Exactly the same problem. It used to work before, but now with SP3 and the latest driver, simply the PC does not recognize the scanner anymore, making it a very ugly paper holder on my desk

  • JoRoesler Jan 14, 2009

    same problem. Used to work, not recognized anymore.

    Worked fine with xp will not work with vista

  • Anonymous Jan 28, 2009

    I cannot get my computer to regonize my device. I keep getting an error that says, "Device Cannot Start (Code10)." I called the company and they were no help. They told me that it was my computer that was the problem. I would never recommend the slide scanner FS-C1-VP or anything else made by VuPoint solutions.

  • Hamiltonbob Feb 09, 2009

    I have the same problem. Works fine till I get to the point of scanning, then nothing happens.

  • Anonymous May 03, 2009

    Used to work on previous Windows XP desktop. I cannot get it to work on my XP laptop; it keeps looking for some kind of camera.

    Neither will it work on Windows Vista.

Need to get a VuPoint FS-C1-VP film/slide scanner working with Windows 7 or Mac 10.6.7 operating system.

VuPoint solutions have taken down the product from their products listings on their site, so that means they've ceased support of the device. Since there is no Vista or 7 driver, just an XP one that means that you won't be able to get it running on a windows 7 now or ever. The only other option you have left is to find an independently-developed driver from some programming geek but I had no luck with that. Mac drivers have never even been listed for that device, so same there. What I suggest is installing XP(either physically or virtually) to use with the device or upgrading to a newer device with Vista/7 support. I hope I helped!

I need help with using a VuPoint FS-C1-VP film scanner with an OS X 10.6 (snow leopard) system. (It came only with a Windows software driver and application.)

doesn't look like theres any drivers for mac on their website.
you will need to find a windows machine or do a bootcamp install of windows on your mac.
this way you can install the drivers on the windows machine and then copy the scans over to your mac when your done.
you will need a windows xp service pack 2 cd or higher to do a boot camp install.

OVT Scanner won't run with Windows 7. Vupoint

We suffered this initially on a new laptop with Windows 7. I can't tell if the driver on the Vupoint website has been updated, or is the old XP/Vista driver, but we installed this (1/2011). In Picasa or the Photoimpressions software which comes with the scanner, we were then only able to acquire solid black images. However, when we tried all of the USB ports on the computer, we found that one of them (a USB2 rather than USB1 port) was able to function like normal. We suspect there is a funny issue with the amount of power going to the scanner from different USB ports, and maybe this interacts with the driver in some way.

Looking for the Vupoint Filmscanner driver. Thanks for helping..

Hi Thierryghi,
thanks for explaining in detail.
Please download the driver for your device from the below link.

But I am not sure whether it will be compatible from Windows 7.
Try installing the driver. If not installing on win 7, then right click on the setup.exe and select properties. There select compatibility to windows xp as something similar like below.


After installing the driver, you need to install software so that you can use that software to scan.
Please download the software from the below location and insatll this as well after installing the driver.

After installing this s/w you will be getting some shortcut in desktop using which you can scan your film.

I hope this will be useful to you.
