Question about Mustek A3 USB Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Problem with my A3 flatbed scanner

I have only just got my scanner, and i have not been able to produce a succesful scan ever.
All i ever get when i scan my image is just a mess of white and grey in the preview, or sometimes nothing comes up at all.
The image i am trying to scan is a pencil drawing. I have no idea what is wrong, maybe the settings are wrong, eventhough i haven't changed them.
Or maybe it is just not working.
Can you help me please?

The preview, if it is thumbnail picture, it is difficult ti decipher. Dont worry about that. Pencil drawings are very light and needs higher contrast. Try a few options and you can select the best one. If you scan a pencil drawing in grey, it may appear light and also file size will be bigger.

Is there a vista driver for the Mustek scanner A3 EP, which happens to be parallel port equipment.


Hi, Mustek doesn't appear to have released a Vista driver for this scanner. If you go to Mustek's A3 EP support page, there is only a Windows 2000 driver, which seems to be the same one for Windows XP. Have you tried using this driver in Vista, to see if it works?

Scanner won't initialize


Hi,
It could be something to do with the bundled software having a missing or corrupt TWAIN32 file.. But you can Scan using Windows XP itself.

Scroll down to the Scanning part, and see if that is of any use to you..

Hope this helps
