Question about Minolta Dimage Scan Elite II Film Scanner

Open Question

Minolta dimage scan elite ii software error mac os 10.5.7

Unknown error. It may be because other DiMAGE can software has launched.
the first time I launched it I had the scanner connected to a hard drive firewire 400. When I launched the software it wouldn't open for 5 minutes and I had to force quit. It still appeared in the force quit list, so I restarted. Plugged directly to computer and now I get the same error every time.
Could there still be software trying to run, even after a restart. I even reinstalled the software.
I'm running OS 10.5.7
thanks, jason

Apparently Vuescan works on Vista with the 5400

Paul you might want to see if VueScan http://www.hamrick.com/ supports this particular scanner. It often allows older scanners to work on newer computers as it bypasses the Twain drivers.

Don't plug the machine in until you install the software, and you should be fine. A lot of people reported success with these versions of drivers and programs reported.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Why won't Minolta film Scanner work with iMac and OSX 10.6.2?


Hi
I bought a secondhand, nearly new Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 a few years ago but never tried to use it until now when I tried to get it to work with my iMac running OSX 10.6.2. I uploaded the Dimage software but I cannot get it to recognise the scanner - any suggestions? Do I need to get updated drivers?

I am attempting to use my Dimage Scan Dual 4, with windows 7, but I receive an error 4 message, stating that the scanner connection cannot be confirmed. Any ideas? Ron


1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Vista/Windows 7.
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:

; scanners.inf -- Test Vista Minolta Film Drivers
;
;
; To remove this driver and install the original
; manufacturer's driver, go into Device Manager,
; open Imaging devices, then click on the scanner name
; with the right mouse button and choose Uninstall.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as newminolta.inf NOT as newminolta.inf.txt or newminolta.txt (i.e. c: newminolta newminolta.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 Scan Dual IV 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 newminolta.inf and click OK
14. Click Next. Vista 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.

Mac OS X Leopard & Dimage Scan Elite II


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.

4. Save file. Turn on scanner and go into device manager and update the old minolta driver with this driver. You may have to manually update it.
5. Once installed, all the normal Minolta programs now work just fine. Enjoy!

I tested this on Vista 32 Ultimate with a Dimage IV but it should work on all the models listed in the .inf file.

Dimage 5400 on an Imac


Try deleting a file called MFSLibInit which the scanner sometimes seems to erroneously create when you launch the software. The file will appear in the dimage folder (you'll find that folder in the preferences folder within the library folder). Then re-launch. This solved the problem on my powerbook but I now have a new MacBook pro and am having the same problem and this is not solving it. Good luck.

Can't start up Konica Minolta Elite 5400 II


This problem usually occurs when the scanner software crashes, or the scanner is turned off in operation, or the computer is shut down before you quit the software, etc.  
The K-M driver software gets corrupted.
I use mine with a Mac G3 Tower and OS-X v 10.4.9.  What I do is search for all the Konica-Minolta components using OS-X spotlight and then delete them.  After reinstalling the K-M driver software and restarting the mac, the scanner should work fine.
