VuPoint film scanner no longer recognized by computer

Used to work fine. Now the scanner is not recognized. I've reloaded all the software - successfully after several attempts. When I plug in the scanner it should recognize it but it does not. I have gotten an error message about a dll that is missing:
c:windowssystem32OVTFBoot.dll
it does not seem to be there and I cannot find it on the product cd.

SOURCE: OVTFBoot.dll

OK ya must be trying to install into Vista? anyway whats happening is ya NOT using Admin mode... and that DLL isn't being allowed to be put in the system32 dir... so disable UAC open admin prompt and find it, & copy .. so after ya install find the DLL on the install media .. then copy and paste it to ya windows\system32\ dir.. register it if reqiured should be all good.

Better still install properly with admin rights and such. GL

SOURCE: OVT Scanner won't run with Windows 7. Vupoint

We suffered this initially on a new laptop with Windows 7. I can't tell if the driver on the Vupoint website has been updated, or is the old XP/Vista driver, but we installed this (1/2011). In Picasa or the Photoimpressions software which comes with the scanner, we were then only able to acquire solid black images. However, when we tried all of the USB ports on the computer, we found that one of them (a USB2 rather than USB1 port) was able to function like normal. We suspect there is a funny issue with the amount of power going to the scanner from different USB ports, and maybe this interacts with the driver in some way.

SOURCE: Need to get a VuPoint

VuPoint solutions have taken down the product from their products listings on their site, so that means they've ceased support of the device. Since there is no Vista or 7 driver, just an XP one that means that you won't be able to get it running on a windows 7 now or ever. The only other option you have left is to find an independently-developed driver from some programming geek but I had no luck with that. Mac drivers have never even been listed for that device, so same there. What I suggest is installing XP(either physically or virtually) to use with the device or upgrading to a newer device with Vista/7 support. I hope I helped!

My Canoscan lide 700f will no longer scan negatives


Hello try to reinstall the software for the scanner from here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/scanners/film_negative_scanners/canoscan_lide_700f#DriversAndSoftware

Please select your windows system 32 or 64 bit.
Download the driver and uninstall the old software before you install the new.

Canon does make an driver upgrade once a while to fix previous problems with the software.

Hope this will help you

Hi! My computer (Macbook pro) doesn't seem to recognize my Nikon Coolscan IV software and I get the following message


You've not said what the message is but I suspect that the software is too old to be used on the macbook if it is running OS X 10.7 (Lion) or if you are running snow leopard, it may be a non-intel version of the software. It may be asking you to instal rosetta which would be on your snow leopard instal disk.

If the Nikon website does not have updated software you could try vuescan which according to this page http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/nikon_coolscan_iv_ed.html does work with the film scanner and you can download a demo version which you can trial before you buy. Hope this helps.

Can Vista Home Premium recognize Vupoint PDS-ST415-VP? If not, is there a driver that can be loaded to make it work?


When I display my images on my computer, the images are black. I can't see the picture. What's wrong. I've installed the SD card and formated it several times. i've followed the instructions see several times. Should there be light when it scans like other scanners?

Scanner no longer communicates with the pc


Have your scanner turned on when you boot up your computer. Go to Programs, Acessories, Scanner and camera wizard, and it will give you directions if the scanner is not installed and recognized.
