Question about Acer ScanPrisa 640U Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Blinking lights on standby, unable to scan

Driver is installed correctly for WinXP (although native drivers would also work), but when I try to use the Mirascan software or the native Windows scan program, the light would blink 8 times in succession instead of going on a steady green light (i.e. that its on standby waiting to scan something).

    Yep, I'm having the same problem. I've uninstalled & reinstalled with & without the software it came with. I do have Windows XP but when we got another computer we moved the one with the scanner on it to another room. We moved the scanner with it but will not work anymore - same computer just relocated it. I'm getting an error of -



    Read image data failure

    Please restart scanner

    Code [ffff:24]



    It does not have a printer hooked up to it. Does that make a difference? Do the cables/wires have to be plugged in in any certain order?

    My Acer 640U scanner was connected to a computer with Windows XP & was working. We relocated the computer & scanner & now it will not work. I've tried installing & uninstalling with & without the software it came with.



    I get an error that says:



    Read image data failure

    Please restart scanner

    Code [ffff:024]



    Does it make a difference how the cables/wires were connected - the order of.? It does not have a printer hooked up with it. Does that make any difference?



    Thank you.

Is there a wia driver for Windows 7 for the Kodak i65 Scanner?


Well I too HAD this problem. Upgraded to Win7 64 bit and was unable to install the existing 32 bit drivers (of course) that operate in WinXP and Vista. Called Kodak and there wonderful answer was Buy a New Scanner.

Well this was just not an option. SO I searched and searched for alternatives, to creating a WinXP Virtual machine with VMPlayer or VirtualBox to remote controlling an older WinXP laptop connected to the scanner. None were solutions I felt I could live with.

Then I found VueScan at www.hamrick.com. A small chea scanning software that you can try before you buy. I read through everything on the site including the specific scanner notes for the Kodak I65, then downloaded the trial version.

Once installed you follow the instructions from the site to use VueScans own driver to run the Kodak scanner and lo and behold I got my ORIGINAL Kodak scanner menu to work on Win7 64bit. Then I used the VueScan software to scan a document and it worked like a charm. Albeit with the VueScan watermark.

Now I could have stopped there and called it a success, but I then, tried scanning with my Nitro PDF Pro software and was amazed to get a Perfect scan without the watermark.

Now NOTE, I did not buy the VueScan software at this time, as I don't need it's ability. I just used their driver and driver installation instructions from the website specifically for the Kodak I65. Most likely going to buy the basic version of the software anyway, as I think the guy deserves something for saving my EXPENSIVE I65 from becoming a paperweight.

An Elegant and Complete solution to Kodak's total support failure!

Unable to Downgrade vista OS to windows 2003 or XP(CQ-LAPTOP)


During the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.
IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN THE BIOS then :-
Go to the Compaq/HP WEB site to download the SATA driver for your model laptop. This driver is used to install the 3rd party driver
during the Windows installation (during the Windows installation you need to press F6 to allow you to install the SATA driver).

DWA-643 installed but unable to access any wireless point


check the status of the device under Device Manager first and see if it was properly installed. If yes, you may use the wireless zero configuration utility built-in to XP or Vista. If your OS is lower than XP you have the use the utility provided by D-link. It usually comes with a CD installer for its driver and utility.

Please rate and see if it helps. Thanks and goodluck.

Sharing srp350 network printer on win98 to winxp


You are correct with the conflict, although, it's a difference in drivers, i think what has happened is when you share a printer with xp, it installs the driver from the pc with the driver and printer attached, and as it is attached to a win98 pc, the full functions are probably unavailable,unlike an xp local driver.
