Question about Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV Film Scanner

Open Question

Minolta DiMage Scan Dual IV film transport hang & slow

Dear sirs,

I have a Minolta DiMage Scan Dual IV which has scanned over 1000 slides. During my last scans I recently had some problem with the film transport, which sometimes slow down or hangs. After stopping the scan process and re-insert the film holder, all goes again ok. I think it could be a problem with the motor, some sensor or a belt (if there are).

Could you help me, please? Here in Italy there is no more support and I'd love to continue using this wonderful scanner.

Another question, please. Could someone tell me how I could clean the CCD and the optics too, please?

Thank you so much & best regards,
Lorenzo

Forget about the Minolta software. It's buggy at best. Use VueScan instead. A free trial is available so you can test it before you commit to buying it. Available for Windows including Vista.

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!

It's possible there are no drivers running under W 7 for this remarkable unit and it's a shame .
If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD .
You could also partition your HDD and install W XP on the new one .
Otherwise ... trashbin . Yes , life is hard .

I have been using the Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV for the last 2 months and i've scanned about 350 slides, so i know it works. however sense yesterday afternoon it hasn't been working for me. I am...


I do not have an answer for you, unfortunately, as my Dual Scan IV is doing almost the same thing....my unit will not load the 35mm film slider - when it tries to load, it makes a fairly loud clicking or ratchetting sound. This occurs each time I push the film into the unit. Have you had any replies or have you found a solution to the problem. Thanks and good luck.

Are you doing index scans or prescans? Sometimes the software gets funky - try doing at index scan if you are doing prescans, and vice versa. Also try CHTL+SHIFT+I which is a recalibration (don't that will do anything but it can't hurt). The best thing might be to just remove Dimage totally (you may have to delete the main folder if you've created any Jobs) and then reload the software. Before you do that, update your virus software, do a system check, and maybe some maintenace like a Defrag - then reboot, remove the software, reboot again and reload software.

1) Install all of the usual Minolta software in Vista.
2) Create a new folder somewhere
3) Create a new txt file named minolta.inf and paste this into it:

;
;
; 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.

4. Save file. Turn on scanner and go into device manager and update the old minolta driver with this driver. You may have to manually update it.
5. All the normal Minolta programs now work just fine. Enjoy!
