SOURCE: Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device

Hello,

 

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.

 

Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.

 

Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.

 

Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.

 

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.

 

You can email me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com if you need further assistance.

 

Bye.

The BF-1284 driver (zip file) is available from BAFO support: http://www.bafo.com/menu-support.asp . Scroll down the list to the desired product. The driver is for Win98se and Windows Me. You shouldn't need a separate driver for Win7; the drivers should be in the OS. (See the link on Windows 7 compatibility near the top of the URL given above.) I suspect the driver should also be available in the OS for XP.

If your computer doesn't find the driver automatically, check if the driver is listed in Windows Update as optional updates. (You may have to manually check for updates.)

I hope this helps.
