How to hook up a Minolta Scan Duel to an Intel Mac using OS10.5.6

Is there any way to hook up a Minolta Scan Duel (first model) to an Intel Mac using OS10.5.6? It originally ran on OS 8.6, then later 9.2.
Hate to try to come up with money for a new one that is the equivalent since it was a very good scanner.
My iMac 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo won't run those old systems. I have Silverfast software that works on my current system so that's not a problem.

    I'll have to get back to you on this one. I haven't yet got Boot Camp to working, nor do I have the firewire to scsi adapter yet. But it sounds as if it will work.

    The URL that you posted lists this info upon more detailed reading:


    Note For Windows XP Home Edition / Windows XP Professional users:
    Only Dimage Scan Dual units with boxes labeled "New Power Macintosh G3" can be used with Windows XP OS. See the footnote.




    FOOTNOTE reads:




    Notes on use with Windows XP Home Edition / Windows XP Professional.

     
    1.Hardware compatibility
    There are two types of Dimage Scan Dual hardware, one type does not support the New Power Macintosh G3 (Blue&White) and the other does. Only the latter type is compatible with Windows XP.

    Your Dimage Scan Dual unit can be used on Windows XP if ....>
    a) Box
    -If a "Compatible with New G3" triangle-shape sticker is present on the outside of the box.
    b)Enclosures
    - If the New Power Macintosh G3 is listed in the system requirements table in the instruction manual for Macintosh.
    - If an insertion sheet involving the information about the New Power Macintosh G3 was supplied in the kit.
    - If the Dimage Scan Dual CD-ROM contains version 2.1.0 or later driver.
    2.Driver software installation
    You must be logged on as a computer administrator to complete the installation.

    My system doesn't comply with this. Also do not have the box as it was many many years ago that this was a new unit.

    Bootcamp doesn't seem to do anything but yell at me that my machine is overrun with viruses.

    I am going to try Parallel.

You could possibly run it with windows drivers. Does your mac have bootcamp? it should have it. you could run windows xp or 2000 and use it there.

http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/americas/scanners/dimage-scanners/dimage-scandual/software_drivers/index.html

Heres a list of what it works with:
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/americas/scanners/dimage-scanners/dimage-scandual/compatibility/detail.html

95 to xp is listed.

should work.

    it should. good luck.

    let me know how it goes.


  • Ekse Jun 03, 2009

    I'm sorry since its such a old product the maker is no longer going to create any new drivers for it.
    So unless we get it to work this way there is noting we can do about it.

    can you run windows 2000 on the bootcamp? I saw it on the supported list, how about windows 98?

Driver for mac os 10.7.5


The last Mac OS X version officially supported by that scanner is Mac OS 10.4 Tiger. You *MAY* be able to get it to work under Mac OS 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard but otherwise there is NO way to get it to work with 10.7, 10.8 or 10.9 since these are Intel only platforms (the scanner software is PowerPC PPC.) Your only option is to run a Windows XP virtual machine inside your Mac and to it that way. I can assist you with that if you like.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV Film Scanner driver in an IMac


DS Dual 4 even works with SnowLeopard on a CoreDuo MBP. But it doesn not support Autofocus when used under USB2. You have to use a USB1.1 Port, if you want to use autofocus function. Every time the software crashes, because you tried e.g. to use autofocus with USB2, you will have to close the application, go to the folder User/Library/Preferences/DS Dual4/... and look whether there is a file name something like "MFSlib...." and pull it to the trash bin. You can start the application again. PS.: Your keyboard USB port is a USB 1.1 port!

Connection problem (error4 ) Minolta Dimage 5400


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.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as sonyscanners.inf NOT as sonyscanners.inf.txt or sonyscanners.txt (i.e. c:\newminolta\sonyscanners.inf)
6. Go to system control panel (may have to change control panel to classic view to see system).
7. Select Device Manager
8. Select Imaging Devices
9. Right click on Minolta XXXX (depending on model) and click on driver tab. Select Update Driver.
10. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
11. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
12. Select Have Disk
13. Browse to c:\newminolta\sonyscanners.inf and click OK
14. Click Next. Windows should now say it updated driver.
15. Run Dimage software with door closed. Wait for it to initialize and green light stops blinking.
16. Open door and insert film holder and start scanning.
17. If you are trying to use a Minolta 5400 with firewire in Windows 7, you have to change your 1394 driver to the legacy windows 1394 driver in order for the scanner to detect. Google for instructions as it's too detailed to add in here.
18. The above driver should relink virtually all known Minolta scanners (USB/SCSI/Firewire) to the Windows TWAIN driver so it will work with the legacy Minolta software.

Forget about the Minolta software. It's buggy at best with OS X. Use VueScan instead. A free trial is available so you can test it before you commit to buying it.
