    /Your solution did not solve the problem. After the scan the 4 slide photo's all show up in the thumbnail as one picture and this is not as it is supposed to. Each slide should appear as one photo. With a previous computer I have scanned over 1800 slides and had no problems. Is this procedure compatible with VISTA ?? Is there a download needed to correct any problems and how would I accomplish this?

  • dkirk228 May 26, 2009

    My comment to your second suggestion is that it didn't solve the problem or even come close. I will not accept in more of your suggestions. Besides you didn't even answer the questions I asked about being compatable with Vista. I have found info in Epson's information on line which states it is not compatable with Vista. Rather than continue any further with this avenue of scanning slides I will purchase another scanner that will do what I need and be way further ahead money wise in the long run. Thanks very much for trying. Dwight Kirk

You need to scan in full auto mode when using the Epson scanner software , follow the instructions here to scan slides.

After scanning you will need to save the slides one by one on single files, save all files in a folder and use the CD burning software to save them on a CD.

    In that case try switching to professional mode and enter settings manually, click here to see instructions.

    Regarding other software, yes you can use third party Twain interface to manage the scanner, but it will be even more difficult to find a proper setting for your slides.

    The software is Vista compatible, and not only, the software is working fine.

    When the software is not compatible and not working you get no scan at all, and the software does not start and does not work on vista , therefore this is not a software compatibility problem.

    the problem is with settings or with the way slides are being placed on scanner.

    To scan slides you need to do a pre scan first , then select the sccanning area to a single slide, otherwise you will get all slides scanned at once.

    I wanted to add that the scanner is surely Vista compatible, here is Epson page where it shows Vista 32 drivers as first software download, that means that the scanner had been designed to work on Vista.

    The info that you found was probably just the opinion from a user.

    here is the page:
    Epson Perfection 1650 Photo, Drivers & Downloads
    Here also Vista compatibility list, including your model:


    Just do a pre scan, then select the scanning area using the mouse, so to scan a single slide at a time.After that save each scan as a single file.

    Thanks for your patience.

If you do not have the manual for this product, you can download it at Also make sure that the lamp lock has been disengaged. It's usually located under the lid or on the bottom of the scanner. This prevents damage during shipping but will give an error if it's engaged when you warm it up. Good luck.
