You have to replace the original Konica Minolta driver with the custom one I have created below. Here are the detailed steps.

1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Vista/Win7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It will 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:
; sonyscanners.inf -- Sony (Konica Minolta) Film Drivers
;
;
; Beta driver for Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating
; systems for all known Sony film scanners.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as sonyscanners.inf NOT as sonyscanners.inf.txt or sonyscanners.txt (i.e. c:\newminolta\sonyscanners.inf)
6. Go to system control panel (may have to change control panel to classic view to see system).
7. Select Device Manager
8. Select Imaging Devices
9. Right click on Minolta XXXX (depending on model) and click on driver tab. Select Update Driver.
10. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
11. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
12. Select Have Disk
13. Browse to c:\newminolta\sonyscanners.inf and click OK
14. Click Next. Windows should now say it updated driver.
15. Run Dimage software with door closed. Wait for it to initialize and green light stops blinking.
16. Open door and insert film holder and start scanning.
17. If you are trying to use a Minolta 5400 with firewire in Windows 7, you have to change your 1394 driver to the legacy windows 1394 driver in order for the scanner to detect. Google for instructions as it's too detailed to add in here.
18. The above driver should relink virtually all known Minolta scanners (USB/SCSI/Firewire) to the Windows TWAIN driver so it will work with the legacy Minolta software.

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 and Mac.

There are 2 steps you can do to get this option back.

First, You need to update Adobe Flash player Or you need to uninstall and Reinstall the Adobe Flash player.

Since you uninstalled the Software and and reinstalled, the Software is not able to detect the latest Adobe software in your PC.

May i know what is the operating system ?

Try this step below to update to adobe flash player if you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista
Click on START button
Click on MY Computer or Computer
Open C:/ local Disk
Open Windows Folder
Open System32 Folder
Open Macromed Folder
Open Flash Folder
You will find few flash files
Double click on file Flashutil10 and it should give you update screen. Continue and complete the process.
Restart your PC and try to Scan

If this does not work, you need to uninstall adobe flash player and reinstall it and it will work.

Regards,
Ron

You may have to uninstall and reinstall the printer

Go to your HP Director
Click status
And if it doesn't read "Your HP is ready", you will need to reinstall


Use the software CD, or go to the HP download site for the latest drivers

Canon lide35 won't work on new windows 7 computer despite downloading driver from Canon website, any ideas ?


Assuming you downloaded the driver from this page on Canon's website , try also downloading the latest CanoScan toolbox software if you haven't already done so. Also, if that doesn't work. Try going to the Device Manager (Start Menu > Control Panel > System > Device Manger (on left side of screen)), right click on the scanner driver and then left click on uninstall. Try reinstalling the driver to see if it takes the second time around. Use the latest driver available (most likely from the above page if that's not what you downloaded before). Let me know how you make out.

Hp5300c scanner-can't use HP software on new PC (XP Pro SP3)


Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. If the HP software is not working correctly, then Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away. For Faxes, etc. import in outlook or other email client, etc.

My scanner on my f300 printer won't scan


It sounds like the issue is software related. When the light is flashing it is sending the file to the computer but then nothing is happening. You either have not installed the software or you need to uninstall and reinstall.

Both require you to download the most recent drivers - don't use the CD unless you do not have a highspeed internet connection. Just click on the link and enter product name and the OS and choose the most recent full feature software and drivers.
