Problem with Microtek Scanner

I'm installing an old Microtexk scanner (Scanmaker 5600) on a WinXP machine. I've downloaded and installed the latest software from Microtek. I've plugged in the scanner (USB) and it appears under "my computer", but when I launch the Scanmaker software I get two error messages:

1)Fail to read image! System error: 31, A device attached to the system is not functioning.

2) Microtek scanmaker 5600 error "Code: -1007, not enough memory for driver to work

Any suggestions?

ensure that the scanner is compatible with the operating system you have installed on your pc,as some older scanners are not with XP & vista

Windows 7 won't read the microtek scanmaker 4900

In case you haven't noticed, there aren't any drivers for your scanner for Windows7 from Microtek. So you have to wait till Microtek anounce new drivers, or try the WinXP version with your own risk.

In case of a problem, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

How to instal the scanner?

well basically, if the machine is WinXP or newer you can plug the unit in the computer while its running (most likely it is connected via USB), when the install wizard pops up on the screen cancel it out and run the installation cd that came with the scanner

Microtek Scanner installation issue

If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.

I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.

This link: will allow you to select between the 5950 and 5950 Pro then on the next page you will be able to download the latest XP driver for your Scanmaker among drivers for other Operating Systems also.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
