Question about Visioneer OneTouch 8920 Flatbed Scanner
New to here, but have been with the computer age since the mid-70's writing Cobol, Fortran and Basic, but long forgotten and had my first "PC" in early 80's, a Kaypro with no hard drive and hanged with the BBS back then and have created digial art since you had to do it pixel by pixel and ascii art. Later art can be seen here, http://www.geocities.com/chipstuff22/cb3dart/cb3d.html My first scanner was a small hand-held B&W scanner, can't remember the co.? OK, have been around the block a time or two, and built over 500 PCs from scratch and refurbished at least 500 more with donated PC's with OPS from Win 98 to XP Pro for under-privileged kids. So, I am not a newbie at 54 years old... BUT this 8920 has me puzzled right now. It has been amazing since purchased. I haven't used it several months and now when I try to import into PS CS2, I get the preview option which works correctly and shows the image, but the scan "button" is not available? I have uninstalled the the 8920 software/drivers and re-installed the latest drivers..including disconnecting the scanner, blah, blah as per the usual instructions. perhaps I am just getting old and tired, but just can't quite figure this one out. probably simple as most I find for other folks..."a plumbers pipes always leak".... Any help greatly appreciated. thanks, woodro2 S
Very verbose and you have lots of experience - just like me except I can give you 25 years- But to get on. You did not say what operating system you are working. Or the age of the Scanner It is important. Scanners made during the 95/8/ME era were set up for DOS commands from the computer. Now we are in the NT age The computer sends out NTFS commands and scanner cant figure it out. Some scanners were dual system. And you could fool around with the program compatibility facility. But by and large old scanners should be buried.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.
Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.
Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.
Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.
The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.
Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.
By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.
Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.
Make any last minute changes.
If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.
Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.
Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.
Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.
To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.
The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.
