Question about Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV Film Scanner

2 Answers

The Scan Dual IV will not initialize on startup although the door is closed.

I have used the scanner before, and had put it away for probably six months or better. Upon hooking it up again, I cannot use it because the scanner will not initialize, the light just keeps blinking. The door is closed and the software is installed. Any suggestions?

    I have the identical problem - and have tried new USB cables - a different computer - removed and reinstalled the software - telephoned the Minolta helpline but they did not ring me back as promised. Feel very frustrated

    I also have the same problem. I am running the software on Mac OS X 10.4.11. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the scanner software but the indicator light will not stop blinking.

      After scanning a couple of trays of slides the scanner locked up with the film inside it. I had to turn the unit off and on again to get it to eject the tray. I'm using a Mac with OS10 and I get a message that says it cannot be launched because I may have other Dimage software running which of course I do not. I also have the blinking light but only when the door is closed. Thankyou so much for any help you can offer.

Ok, I figured it out. The indicator light was constantly blinking but I just went ahead and proceeded with the rest of the steps outlined in the manual. The scanner works fine and after the software is opened, the light will stop blinking. I don't know why this works but it does.

Have you right clicked on the .exe file of windows 7 executable for the Minolta scanner to select compatibility to switch it back to xp.Have you tried to use third party twain drivers for scan software such as silverfast or vuescan instead?

Need drivers for Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III to work with Windows 7 64-bits


I used this solution from KainAnderson
1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Win 7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It may detect and install the original Konica Minolta Driver.
3) Create an empty folder on you harddrive (for instance go to my computer, double click on the c: drive, then right click and create a new folder named newminolta).
4) Open windows notepad and copy the following into it:

; scanners.inf -- Test Vista Minolta Film Drivers
;
;
; To remove this driver and install the original
; manufacturer's driver, go into Device Manager,
; open Imaging devices, then click on the scanner name
; with the right mouse button and choose Uninstall.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV Film Scanner driver in an IMac


DS Dual 4 even works with SnowLeopard on a CoreDuo MBP. But it doesn not support Autofocus when used under USB2. You have to use a USB1.1 Port, if you want to use autofocus function. Every time the software crashes, because you tried e.g. to use autofocus with USB2, you will have to close the application, go to the folder User/Library/Preferences/DS Dual4/... and look whether there is a file name something like "MFSlib...." and pull it to the trash bin. You can start the application again. PS.: Your keyboard USB port is a USB 1.1 port!
