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.

Benq Mirascan 4.00 won't find Benq 4300 scanner using Windows 7 32 bit


I think this scanner is not supported in Windows 7 OS. You can alternatevely try to install Virtual PC->Windows XP Mode and install your scanner there, so you could use your old hardware. If you want to follow my advise, go to this page and follow the instructions about downloading and installing Windows XP mode on your workstation.

Cannot see HD in toshiba satalitte l40170 in booting


In some markets the L40-170 is sold without an Operating System.

I assume this is in booting off a Windows XP CD, as Vista, Win7 and Linux (Ubuntu) will recognise the HD on boot.

The L40-170 has a SATA-Hard drive with no compatible mode. WinXP will not natively recognize it.

You need to download the SATA driver from Toshiba-Europe and either:

a)Place it on a USB floppy disk and install it when the Windows installer prompts for external drivers. (This is unlikely to work unless you have a Toshiba branded device)

b) Integrate the sata drivers into a windows installation using software like nLite. (You might as well integrate all the L40-170 drivers and the XP service packs at the same time.)

Caution: Don't use software to extract the drivers off a working machine, the drivers required for windows installer are different from those required by the OS. Rather download them from Toshiba.

Instructions for installing Acer brand parallel port scanners in Windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif XP:

For this driver to work in XP you must install the MiraScan software then install the scanner manually.

Step 1. Download MiraScan v3.424 from the web :
Mirascan_v3424p.exe

Step 2. Unzip and install the Mira Scan driver that you just downloaded. After installation , system will suggest you to add a scanner

Step 3. Then, add an imaging device

Step 4. Then the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard comes up. Click Next at the bottom.

Step 5. Then on Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard screen it will ask you which scanner or camera do you want to install? You want to go where it says "Manufacturer" and then click on EPPSCANNER and where it says "Model" it should say color flatbedscanner. Make sure it is highlighted, also. Click on Next at the bottom.

Note: For additional screen shots of this procedure and installation procedures, please read the pdf file posted here:


scpinwxp-eng.pdf


The Screenshots show to be for Mirascan v3.423 but procedure is same for v3.424

Note: Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view or print this file.

Note: not all XP systems will work with parallel port scanners. If the procedure doesn't work for you, then you must obtain a newer USB type scanner.

Xp professional installation on hp pavilion dv6700 cto notebook


The original Windows XP Installation CD, a freeware application named NLite and a blank CD.
we need the drivers for the SATA controller provided by the manufacturer.

When you start the Nlite application, you will be asked to provide the location for the Windows installation package. Insert the genuine Windows Installation CD into the CD drive and, inside the application, select the CD drive letter.
To insert the SATA drivers within the installation package, you need to have it saved on the HDD. Hence, when the warning window appears click OK and select the destination folder for the files to be saved. Make sure that the destination partition / HDD has enough space to store the contents of the installation CD.

Immediately after you have chosen the destination folder, the application will start copying the Windows installation files. When finished, it will display some version information regarding the newly copied Windows Installation Package.
Now, click next twice until you get to a screen where you get options sorted in 4 categories: Integrate, Remove, Setup, Create. We are interested in the integration procedure, therefore select the Drivers button and click next. From the next menu window, click Import and select multiple drive folder option from the drop down menu. This option permits you to browse to the location where the downloaded drivers are found.
Select the containing directory and click next. You will get a list with the available drivers (in case there are more than one) or simply one driver. Select it (them) and click next. Now the application will ask for the permission to start the integration procedure. Choose Yes and wait for the drivers to be inserted into the installation package.
With problematic driver being included in the installation package you can install Windows XP on your SATA HDD...but...the installation package is on the HDD. You need a bootable CD in order to start an installation. Don't worry, once the installation package has been adorned with additional user selected drivers it can be transformed into a bootable disk image and later burned on a CD. To encapsulate the installation into a ISO image use the same Nlite application.
Open it, make sure the HDD installation folder is selected and click next. Select "Last session" preset and click next again. Now from the options menu choose Bootable ISO and click next. In the following window, make sure that the mode is set to "Create Image" and click Make ISO. A destination folder is required where the resulting ISO image will be saved. Once the image saving process finished you have the freedom to burn it on a blank CD with whatever you favorite CD burner software may be.

The new CD will be the twin copy of the Windows Installation CD but with one difference, it includes the SATA driver

I had to download two different drivers to get my AcerScan320U to work in Win2k (WinXP is easy, as the drivers are included with WinXP). MiraScanv3.42 does not work, but it has good drivers for getting the scanner properly recognized. After that, MiraScanv4.03u10_BQA from Benq will work, and installing it is point and click.

Specify the location of the older (V 3.42) drivers.

Select the file called EPP2K.

Check "Install one of the other drivers".
