Question about Pacific Image PrimeFilm 1800u Film Scanner (35 mm)

1 Answer

Unreconizable image I am using the latest XP Driver, cyberview 1.17, Photoshop and/or Gimp. WinXP, USB2 port back of tower. No other scanner is installed. When cyberview is asked to scan: The scanner goes through its calibration exercises and finally scans. the result is a faded greenish background with streaks of other coulors running through it. I am suspecting a firmware problem but am not sure. Any Ideas?

Re: Unreconizable image

Try updating your scanner driver/software to isolate the problem. If same issue still occurring after uninstalling/reinstall, then source of the problem may be a CCD/lamp failure or some sort of dust, lint, on CCD causing calibration failure.

You need to install a CyberView X scanner driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X.
On Mac OS X, you need to run VueScan with Rosetta, since CyberView X is a PowerPC program. To do this:
  1. Click on the VueScan icon while holding the Control key
  2. Choose 'Get Info'
  3. Check 'Open using Rosetta'

MiraScan quits when I try to load it in an image-editing software, like Photoshop. Why?

Try the program compatibility mode I think these scanner were made for 95/98 DOS machines and did not translate to EXP because of firmware differences.
