Card Cannot be detected error mesage.

I have just installed my worldcard color card scanner but am not having any luck with it. I scan cards either individually or batch scan and I get an error message that the card cannot be detected. When scanning a black and wite card, on the screen it shows a white card with black writing with strips of colour accross it, so that I cannot even read what has been scanned. Am I doing something wrong here? It also does the same on business cards with coloured logos. Help!!

SOURCE: scanner will not scan

Various things[as usual] can affect the performance of a USB device, so check these out. 1.Too many USB device hooked up drawing power from the system - So if it is not in use -unplug it. 2. The driver and or software for the device has corrupted.- Re install 3.Too many programs of a similar nature [graphics in this case] running and confusing resources.- shut down those not in immediate use. Do check the Plustek website for the latest driver[s] A Golden Rule for clean and simple computing is if you are not using it - shut it down. Come back with this one let us all know how it goes.

no the problem is check the path u mentioned in the scanner preferences and settings i mean the folder mentioned to store the scanned images after the scan , scanner is given a path to store these images by default check and change that path to other location on hard drive and everything will be ok if the problem persists then update ur driver from plustek website

How to disable the pop up of saying "The paper was not detected. Continue anyway?"

U cant turn off error notifications on these scanners. It could be the firmware version needs to be updated. also the reset instructions are on the support page under know issues. Try if u can using it on another system to see if its a compatiblity issue on this system. Does it continue to scan after error code>
Ill follow this to see. If still issues reply with more system OS other devices connected like printers or other usb devices.

Wand Scanner - panscn08 buttons do nothing

Yes follow the first steps to set up the scanner (charge it, properly insert the memory card, etc.) Then you are ready to scan
Once you press the SCAN button and the Green LED stays lit its time to roll the scanner down your document to be scanned. When finished press the Scan button again to STOP the scan. If successful your Document count in the display will move from 000 to 001. That is the only indication that you now have a successful scan.
Next Press and hold the SCAN button until the display goes blank.
Now you can remove the memory card (by pushing in and it will release). Place this memory card into a memory card reader on your computer to transfer and view your scanned documents. Rinse and repeat.
BTW, I found a quick start guide for this Pandigital Handheld Wand Scanner Model PANSCN08 at:

Good Luck!

Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by computer

I am having the exact same problem...cannot get the Coolscan 9000 to show up in Device Manager. One thing I did try (to no avail) was to run the regsweeper.exe file that comes with the Nikon scan disk. It clears your registry when you reinstall. It still did not work though so I have a lovely "shoebox" sitting next to my computer that is worthless!
