Question about Memorex MEM48U Flatbed Scanner
How do i make this work with vista
After searching the visioneer.com support website, I found an article at: http://support.visioneer.com/KnowledgeBase/Articles/VIS1493%20-%20Updating%20Your%20Scanner%20Driver.asp?ScannerModel=X2400&bit=64
Download the latest driver - it is for a Xerox 2400 Scanner. This driver works for a Memorex 6142u scanner.
Do the advanced install where you pick the type/brand of device that you want to install
Pick the location of the driver file (C:\Windows\inf) This should pick up the oem76.inf file.
Scroll down the list to the Xerox devices and pick the Xerox 2400 scanner. Click yes, that you want this driver/device even if Windows is not sure that tihs driver works with your hardware.
This worked for me.
I did try installing the XP drivers from http://support.visioneer.com/products/6136/default.asp I set the file properties to Windows XP Service Pack 2 mode first. But that did not work for me. I also read that some Canon driver would work, but I could not seem to get that working.
So download and install the Xerox 2400 Scanner driver and manually add that scanner in the device driver and you'll be all set. I'm using Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

Go to site http://support.visioneer.com/products/home/EOL/Memorex/
Download/save application file 6142. Check file properties, under compatibility select "run this program..." and choose Windows XP(Service Pack 2). if u do not have a vista option
Then run the program.

I'm running a 6142 on Vista using the Memorex driver. I didn't think about it when I got Vista, I loaded it up and everything works fine. I've been using it for sometime with no problems. I installed it using the Memorex CD and have had no problems.

This solution worked for me. I have 64-bit version of Vista. If you have 64-bit version of Vista this is the only thing that I have found to work.
What I did was used a different scanners driver for my Memorex 6142u. I used the Hamrick version of the Canon N1220U scanner driver. The best way to do this is to plug the USB cord into the computer. Vista will try and find the driver for you and fail. then go to device manager. It will say that it isn't working properly. Then fix the driver by selecting from the list of drivers that Vista has packaged with it.
