Polaroid SCSI support

Hey I purchased a Polaroid Sprintscan 4000 via e-bay. It did not come with any cables or software. I found some cables that i believe work and downloaded software Polacolor insight 5.5 off the internet. When I try to open the software it says "The Polaroid SCSI support dll (pl_DevIO.dll) is missing or not registered. Please reinstall this application. If the error persists, call Polaroid Customer support for assistance."
Any ideas??

Re: Polaroid SCSI support

It would help if they would send 5.0 because all I have is 5.5 sorry but you and Poloroid are not very helpful thanks anyway.

Fujitsu fi-5750c Flatbed Scanner need to

The back panel of the scanner should have a USB connection to the right of the SCSI ID selection switch (the farthest right on the back). Just get from any source a standard male/male A/B USB cable.

Then get the correct drivers here: . Additional software may be found here:

I hope this helps.

Cant get my computer to recognize my SprintScan 4000

The scanner uses a "twain" driver, try searching for that, it may be one of the files you already downloaded. Just look in the download u got.Also try going to add hardware, select the scanner there and poit it to the downloaded file when uit asks if you have a disk that came with it. Download the drivers to your desktop, rt click and open a folder on the desktop, and drag all of the drivers and the Twain one especially, into the folder.

I need to connect a Nikon LS2000 Slide Scanner to a Power Mac G4

I originally had the same problem but with a G5. Since Nikon never updated the software for the LS2000 to work with Apple I ended up buying a FR1SX adapter from RATOC Systems: connects the SCSI pins to a Firewire cable. Then I purchased the VueScan software from The scanner worked for several years with this combination.

Software and driver

You should be able to download the proper drivers for your Operating System directly from Microtek:

Since you didn't tell us which country you're located in, or which OS you're using, I can't provide any more specific information for you...

The Download page is located here, for users in the US:

From what I could determine, the X6 model was discontinued some time ago, and there were at least THREE versions of it; you'll have to find it listed under the Product Category in the Discontinued Products section, then choose the version (parallel port / EPP, SCSI, or USB), in order to download the driver you need. Seems that the SCSI version has drivers ONLY for Apple computers; if you're using Windows, you'll need to choose one of the other options...
