Question about Brookstone Scanner Mouse

1 Answer

I can not get the Brookstone scanner mouse to install on a Windows 7 Professional Laptop?

My laptop does not have a disc drive so I downloaded the driver from the Brookstone site. When I double click on the installation icon, it says to connect the mouse and restart installation. However, I am using the mouse to double click on the icon so it is connected. I can use it as a mouse but it will not scan. I called Brookstone and they said to Google it to see if I could find a solution - hmmmmmm. Any ideas? Thanks!

Make sure you install with administrator privileges (right click run as administrator)

why not disconnect the mouse and use the trackpad/buttons until it asks you to connect it?

I have a brookstone photo scanner can't install on my macbook air because there is no disc drive


Open PREVIEW (in applications) and from the "FILE" menu select "IMPORT FROM SCANNER" see if your scanner appears in the list. If not, try to add the new scanner in your SYSTEM PREFERENCES PRINTERS & SCANNERS by clicking the PLUS below the printer and scanners list. It should see your scanner as long as it is plugged in and powered up. Use the drivers available such as "Generic Scanner". Once added, go to the PREVIEW application once again and try to import from scanner. PREVIEW has it's own scanning tools and as long as it can see your scanner it should be able to run it even without your software. If all else fails go online and see if you can download the scanner software from the manufacturer's website.

Brookstone Scanner Mouse needs 128 mb video memory; where do I find that on my computer?


It's refering to Video Memory/Ram/Shared Memory, not your 130GB Storage Space. That would depend on the Graphics and Ram you have and how much memory is Shared. Perhaps this will help: http://www.brookstone.com/webassets/pdf/817873p_manual.pdf

I HAVE A NEW LAPTOP WINDOWS 7 AND CANT RUN MY AGFA SNAPSCAN E20 IS THERE A WAY OF GETTING ROUND THIS


Hello r_maddox4
The only way is a workaround but there are some restrictions .
You need to have version Ultimate or Professional or Enterprise of Windows 7 .
If not , you need to have a Win XP install disc .
You can then come back to me for further assistance to work it out .
Otherwise , you need to purchase a new Windows 7 compatible device .
Best regards ,

Hi, I have 2 computers one laptop Sony Vaio and a regular desktop both with windows 7 running for a while now. The drivers from HP that i downloaded worked fine on the laptop, but on the desktop they are...


My first though is that these two computers are running different versions of Windows 7. The scanner will run on Windows 7, but, HP states "some features may not be available." Did you get Windows 7 drivers from this link? If one computer is running Windows 7 Home and One is running Windows 7 professional, there would be a difference in hardware support. Professional has more compatibility than Home Premium. I suggest that you: 1. COMPLETELY Uninstall the scanner from the computer that is not working. This includes running a registry cleaner following the standard uninstall. 2. Download the correct Windows 7 software for your version of Windows 7 3. Test the product.
HP posted the driver in January 2010. I hope this helps you.
