When in scan manager, trying a preview, the scanner mechanism moves to the end of the document, showing all black preview, then the mechanism moves to the very end of the chassis and the motor continues to run causing an awful grinding sound until it thinks it's done.

Hello, Currently there is no driver available for win 7.But one of my friends had the same issue and he fixed it by asking windows to automatically find the driver from internet and it worked for him.So I suggest you try the same,this is what you need to do
1) First go to control panel,then open Program and Features. 2) Uninstall any driver for the Visioneer 4400 scanner that you have previously installed and reboot the computer,if there is no driver installed then skip this step. 3) Make sure your scanner is connected to the computer,now right click on "My Computer" and click "Manage" 4) Now choose "Device Manager" from the left panel and it should list all the devices on your computer on the right side. 5) Now select the option "Scan for Hardware changes" from "Action" menu on the same window,you can also do this by right clicking on any of the device name in the list (ex,drivers,keyboard) and choose "Scan for Hardware Changes" 6)A new category named "Imaging Devices" should appear on the device list now and when you expand it by clicking on the arrow, it should show your scanner as "42 Bit USB Scanner" 7)Now right click on "42 Bit USB Scanner" and select "Update Driver Software". 8) Now choose the first option,"Scan Automatically for updated driver Software" and Windows should automatically find a working driver and install it.Now your scanner should work.
I have successfully used my Visioneer 9520 to scan 35mm slides, and they came out perfect. To do this, in my image editing software, I select File/Import/Acquire/Visioneer ScanManger Pro. This opens the VIsioneer scan manager window, where I select "Scan 35mm using:" and then I choose the desired scanning configuration, e.g., "35mm Better, 35mm Best, Custom" etc. See image below.
BTW: After several moves, I have lost my 35mm scanning template. Do you know where I can get another one, or do you know someone who could actually scan theirs and email the image to me? I could then create a duplicate from heavy black construction paper or card stock.
I went to the Visioneer site and got the driver. The url is here: http://support.visioneer.com/products/4400/downloads.asp I need to run it using Picasa or Windows Scan manager as there is no ICON on the desktop. Perhaps the CD installs it. Not sure.
here is my solution --uninstal the drivers form device manager unplug the power plug on back of scanner --go to visioneer website and get the xp driver for the 4400 scanner--save instead of running the download ---right click the downloaded installer and click compatable --make to run in xp mode and click OK--install the drivers as prompted when installed restart if prompted then plug the power back into the scanner----instal drivers as prompted --unfortunately --vista wont put the icon in my computer like xp does--the solution is to open program WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY click file at top then import from scanner etc --the familiar page will come up with your scanner to preview or scan as you did before vista----this is the way i use it on vista home basic and i dont have any problems--hopefully you wont either
