Can't recognize scsi device - Eversmart II Pro Scanner

I've picked up an Eversmart Pro II  Scanner secondhand and have tried to connect it to an old G3 Mac - OS 8.6 but can't seem to recognize the scanner. I have installed the eversmart software, I have checked the cables (even bought a new cable to see if that was the problem), I have a terminator switch and have tried setting the termination number to different values. I don't want to spend too much money on this as I'm on a budget but I'm sure the answer is out there.  Any help or suggestions will be very much appreciated.  Thanks Tim.

I've now managed to solve this initial problem by installing the relevant extension for the SCSI PCI card, however when I try to launch the scanner software the error message 'No communication with scanner" pops up

I've tried the obvious cables check etc. Any ideas?

Hi I need the service manual with schematic of this old scanner (HP scanjet 4p) This device doesn't work : SCSI controller and O.S. (either 98SE and Windows XP pro) configure properly the...

The old model scanner came with an old ISA SCSI plug-in card. Even if you had the card, it will not fit into ANY of the card slots on today's motherboards. That card could inly be inserted into a a motherboad from the pre-pentium days - like a motherboard with a 80286 processor. If you ae using a diffrent SCSI controller card I doubt if it will work with this old scaner. FYI, service manuals do not contain schematic diagams and would not cotain the info you need to get that scanner to work with a different scci controller. Sorry, but the 4p is just too old.

Hello Thank for your cooperation with us, but I have a problem after the definition of a canon scanner dr-3060 has not been identified and demonstrated a lack of scsi Did not find it from the CD and...

I am very well versed in Canon scanners with many years of experience on them so I hope my advice helps you out. With any canon scanner that uses SCSI only 3 things can go wrong with them. First I would check the SCSI cable so see if the the connecting heads have pulled away from the cable and the tiny wires are exposed. If so one of the wires may be broken. Or possibly a bent pin on the connector. A simple test would be to replace the cable with a good working one. Then try the scanner to see if it will scan.

Second, the SCSI card itself, on boot up while your still in the boot screen you should see something like ADAPTEC SCSI and then some numbers. Or something similar depending on the manufacturer of your SCSI card. That particular scanner uses SCSI II. If you dont see the prompt window on boot up then I would go to item 3 below.

The last thing to try is item 3 and you will need to go into control panel in windows to do that. In control panel I would look device manager and then imaging. Under imaging if you have a yellow question mark your system does not recognize the scanner as being connected to the computer. If you verified that items one and two above are good and functioning correctly then I would disconnect the scanner via the scsi cable from the computer and reload the drivers for the scanner and then rehook up the scsi cable and reboot the computer. Then I would go back to control panel/device manager/imaging to see if the computer now sees the scanner if it does then you are able to scan again. If it does not, and you have confirmed that the SCSI cable and card in the computer are good and working and the drivers are installed correctly. Then it would be safe to say the SCSI port on the scanner is faulty. The scanner will need to be repaired then by a Canon technican.

I hope this helps you out.

Hello, just check you have a scsi terminator fitted to your scanner as without one you can get all sorts of bus errors. Also, keep the bus length as short as poss.
n.b. some of the later scsi devices are auto-terminating, so check the spec of your devices, and by the way,. don't plug and unplug your scsi bus whilst it is powered up as this can cause the hardware to blow (it's not like a usb plug and play bus)
Hope this helps!

How do i use an epson filmscan 200 with a laptop running windows 7

were you using it under windows xp? if you have 32 bit windows 7 I would try those same drivers. Unfortunately the filmscan 200 came out under windows 95/98 and so Epson never released XP drivers and some people were able to make it work.
I would consider connecting it to an older computer running windows 98 and then transfer the files as you scan them (this would definitely be the least painful)
If you have 64 bit windows 7 I would not even waste the effort, 32 bit is a long shot maybe.
Do you have scsi drivers on the the windows 7? because the filmscan 200 is a scsi 2 device
Good luck

I would like to connect my old SCSI coolscan iii

If your macbook doesn't have the correct SCSI card (SCSI II - d-sub mini 50 pin x2 connector) installed, you aren't going to be able to do this. You will need to find this SCSI card and install it in a computer that will accept it.

Umax Mirage II Flatbed scanner,3 flashing lights

Could be a SCSI termination issue. Try changing the SCSI address number on the scanner to a different one and make sure the chain is terminated properly. If there are multiple SCSI devices in the chain, disconnect all the others until you are sure the scanner is working then slowly add the other devices to the chain making sure everything works as each device is added. SCSI voodoo!

Dell laptop wont recognize ls2000 scanner

The LS-2000 is a "legacy" device to XP and the Nikon software. It needs to be connected to a true SCSI bus adapter, and it's actually pretty finicky about which ones will work in XP. Sorry, you won't be able to use this with your laptop.

Nikon Scan doesn't recognize scanner

I have the same problem (on XP, Nikon Scan 3.1.2) ... IF I turn the scanner on before the computer (or turn the scanner on and then reboot) then Nikon Scan recognizes it. Can't say I'm happy with the solution, but it works consistently for me.
