Well basically, if the machine is WinXP or newer you can plug the unit in the computer while its running (most likely it is connected via USB), when the install wizard pops up on the screen cancel it out and run the installation cd that came with the scanner

Plz help to get my scanner work.............. BENQ 5000B Scanner For Windows 7 32-bit

Hi ,
You need to use the install cd that came with your unit but probably it won't run under Windows 7 .
The only work around possible is to install a virtual version of Windows XP on your drive :
Wish you good luck , otherwise you will need to purchase a compatible unit .
Regards .

In spite of the fact that I properly downloaded and installed my ION Film 2 SD Plus Slide and Film Scanner into my Toshiba Laptop computer, I cannot scan anything into it. I repeated the downloading a

i am surprised that it is not a stand alone scanner. for almost the same price i have a wolverine which basically works on mains power, or powered from laptop. it scans and stores the images in the unit. those can be later transferred to the laptop while connected via usb. one question, does the scanner lcd show the scanned image? if not may be something is wrong with the unit itself.

Some scanner drivers are not compatable with Windows 7. Check with the brand to see if they have any drivers available.

Scans but wont show up in preview

your program may be corrupted. uninstall the device in control panel, remove the usb cable from the back of the scanner, uninstall the software, restart your computer.
without attaching the cable to the unit, install the software:
after you begin installation it will ask you to plug in the unit. Do this so the install can finish. after the software is installed, restart the computer and run the program. when you first run the program it should ask you to run a test. make sure the selection for aligning the scanner is selected and RUN THE TEST! a lot of people just skip this but it is very important to do this as the system doesn't know where the initializing point of the scanner is. your computer is like a child. it has to learn too!!!
If you have any problems let me know and please leave positive feedback for me. Jethro

Go to the link below, download the latest copy, unplug scanner, install software and reboot, plug in scanner, and it may ask for a driver, if so, show it to where the files are, reboot. You should now be OK. If still no go, go to device manager, totally remove ALL USB, uninstall it. Then reboot, then re-install software, reboot, at desktop next, NOW plug in scanner, if required show where drivers are, reboot, at desktop next you should be OK.

Can not scan

Look in Printers. If not shown, Reload DVD installation disc.

Check printers again once installation is complete, if still not showing you will have to manually install from DVD drive/ Computer screem.
Click on DVD drive that is showning Installation DVD, click/open icon, next screen should show contents, click setup incon, hopefully should then install.
Check Printers to make sure it has installed. Icon should be showing.

Dell laptop wont recognize ls2000 scanner

The LS-2000 is a "legacy" device to XP and the Nikon software. It needs to be connected to a true SCSI bus adapter, and it's actually pretty finicky about which ones will work in XP. Sorry, you won't be able to use this with your laptop.
