Question about Epson Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Problem saving scanned negatives to laptop. Epson 2400 scanner.

First off all tried it on XP and Vista and it worked fine. Downloaded the latest drivers for both OS. Scanned docs, photos and slides.
Then it started to "hang, stall, frees and not respond anymore. After completing the preview scan, it does not complete the process. The only error message received was: "can not allocate the acquired memory".

If you are scanning in Color and in high resolution, then the file size will be very big. Try and close other programmes in your Laptop and try. If in color try 150 or 200 dpi option and also select JPG format. Alternatively you can increase your RAM in the laptop. S. Mohan

Just bought it at thrift shop,new never used, no instructions, How do I use? can I use it on any scanner?


No these only fit on epson scanners due to the specific plug on the attached cable.you need and epson most models from 1200 series,1600 or 2400 series or 3600 will accept the transparency adapter.i have an old 1640 series that has one of these adapters.you can source a cheap scanner off eBay and download the drivers off epson site.then attach the scanner AFTER you install the software and it will find the scanner and connect to computer.Epson do provide a good scanning program as part of the download.you will need to choose negative or positive to scan.higher spec scanners have built in transparency hoods and can scan at higher resolutions.quite honestly if you are okay with say 6x4 inch prints a basic scanner is fine if it scans at least 2400 dpi.
