Using my Dimage Scan Dual 4 SW with Windows 7 gives me trouble. Have konica Minolta SW ver. 1.0.0 for windows XP. It works fine on the XP computer. But I have great difficulties loading the SW on


Have you right clicked on the .exe file of windows 7 executable for the Minolta scanner to select compatibility to switch it back to xp.Have you tried to use third party twain drivers for scan software such as silverfast or vuescan instead?

Please try USB connectivity instead of SCSI. It is lot easier and unlike SCSI, there is no sequencing required. (With SCSI, you need to start the device before you start the Computer). You can switch on the scanner when you want!

Hello Thank for your cooperation with us, but I have a problem after the definition of a canon scanner dr-3060 has not been identified and demonstrated a lack of scsi Did not find it from the CD and...


I am very well versed in Canon scanners with many years of experience on them so I hope my advice helps you out. With any canon scanner that uses SCSI only 3 things can go wrong with them. First I would check the SCSI cable so see if the the connecting heads have pulled away from the cable and the tiny wires are exposed. If so one of the wires may be broken. Or possibly a bent pin on the connector. A simple test would be to replace the cable with a good working one. Then try the scanner to see if it will scan.

Second, the SCSI card itself, on boot up while your still in the boot screen you should see something like ADAPTEC SCSI and then some numbers. Or something similar depending on the manufacturer of your SCSI card. That particular scanner uses SCSI II. If you dont see the prompt window on boot up then I would go to item 3 below.

The last thing to try is item 3 and you will need to go into control panel in windows to do that. In control panel I would look device manager and then imaging. Under imaging if you have a yellow question mark your system does not recognize the scanner as being connected to the computer. If you verified that items one and two above are good and functioning correctly then I would disconnect the scanner via the scsi cable from the computer and reload the drivers for the scanner and then rehook up the scsi cable and reboot the computer. Then I would go back to control panel/device manager/imaging to see if the computer now sees the scanner if it does then you are able to scan again. If it does not, and you have confirmed that the SCSI cable and card in the computer are good and working and the drivers are installed correctly. Then it would be safe to say the SCSI port on the scanner is faulty. The scanner will need to be repaired then by a Canon technican.

I hope this helps you out.

Does not work with windows 7; cannot connect to scanner


You have to replace the original Konica Minolta driver with the custom one I have created below. Here are the detailed steps.

1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Vista/Win7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It will detect and install the original Konica Minolta Driver.
3) Create an empty folder on you harddrive (for instance go to my computer, double click on the c: drive, then right click and create a new folder named newminolta).
4) Open windows notepad and copy the following into it:
; sonyscanners.inf -- Sony (Konica Minolta) Film Drivers

;
; Beta driver for Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating
; systems for all known Sony film scanners.

When I turn on the scanner the light flashes but nothing happens the light never goes solid and nothing moves


I had this problem for a long time, but the scanner still worked. I went to adaptec dowload page, finally today, as I was getting concerned about the flashing green light on the scanner and today, I started to get error messages saying that there is no scanner connected to your computer. So download the latest SCSI Card update for your machine. I have an Apple Mac OS X. Your computer is obviously not recognising your SCSi card, if you have one. If you don't have one then I am not sure what to suggest, if your scanner connects using usb. I hope this helps.

Could be a SCSI termination issue. Try changing the SCSI address number on the scanner to a different one and make sure the chain is terminated properly. If there are multiple SCSI devices in the chain, disconnect all the others until you are sure the scanner is working then slowly add the other devices to the chain making sure everything works as each device is added. SCSI voodoo!

Kodak DS3500 scanner


Are you using a Kofax SCSI card or an normal SCSI controller like Adaptec?
By using a normal SCSI controller, is there an ASPI driver problem after a WIN XP update? After an update check the ASPI dlls in \sytem32. They should be version 4.71 or higher.

Check the SCSI connector pins and the terminator.
If available change the cable.

Scanner check:
Is the green lamp (Ready) on or is the red lamp (Error) on?

- green lamp on:
the internal self test is ok, but the internal SCSI interface may possibly faulty.

- red lamp on:
the internal selftest detect an error.
It's possible that the DC/DC power board, the CPU board or the power supply inside the scanner is defective.
After reassembling the front side camera you will see at the bottom a PCA board with some LEDs whitch indicate by red light the different voltages when power is on. You find the different voltages printed at the PCA close to the LEDs.
In case on or more LEDs don't shine the according DC/DC transformer on the PCA is defective.
Futher you see LEDs at the camera PCAs. They should be on too.

In case the CPU board has an defect you must have an special Kodak activation tool to unlock an new or used CPU board after exchange.
