What setting?

    If you mean the Bios in your PC then you should'nt have to change anything just to use a scanner. The only thing I can think is if you have to change the port settings in the PC's Bios.

    Usually to get in to the Bios you have to press the Del key or F2 just after the PC starts but before it actually loads Windows. The procedure varies from PC to PC.
    If it is that then this may help but only if the Scanner is a Parallel port version.
    You should'nt have to change anything in the Bios for a USB Scanner.

    Error message 0x10ff0800 appears when attempting to operate the scanner

    off, ff, 10ff, 0ff, other, error



    This solution applies to Parallel Port type scanners only (model names ending with "P")

    The PARALLEL PORT on the PC must be changed to EPP mode.

    Solution for Compaq Presario 7400/7500
    · Power on or restart computer
    · Hit the "F10" every second until you see a message saying: "ENTERING BIOS SETUP"
    · Hit ENTER on the ENGLISH option
    · Move using the arrow keys to the heading "ADVANCED"
    · Move down to "DEVICE OPTIONS"
    · Now down to "PARALLEL PORT MODE"
    · You change the port mode by using the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to change (From ECP to EPP only).
    · When you have set the port to the desired mode hit the "F10" key to accept
    · Navigate back to the "MAIN" heading
    · Highlight the option: "SAVE CHANGES AND EXIT’’ hit ENTER and then "F10" to accept
    · The PC will now re-boot

    Solution for other PC Systems.
    · Power on or restart computer
    ·
    Press your DELETE or F1/F8 key to enter BIOS / CMOS setup (if in doubt
    please ask your PC supplier how to access the CMOS/BIOS settings and
    change the Parallel Port settings from ECP to EPP).
    · Select "INTEGRATED PERIPHERALS "and enter
    ·
    Scroll down to onboard parallel port mode then using the PAGE UP &
    PAGE DOWN key change the port setting from ECP to EPP ONLY then press
    your ESC KEY which will take you back to the main screen
    · Select "SAVE SETTINGS and EXIT" setup and ENTER
    · Select Y and ENTER to save settings to CMOS
    · Your system will now restart and go back to windows


    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    THE
    PROCEDURE TO CHANGE THIS SETTING VARIES BETWEEN PC MODELS AND
    MANUFACTURERS. THE PROCEDURES IN THIS DOCUMENT ARE GENERALISED, AND
    APPLY TO MANY COMMON BRANDS OF PC.

    IF THE PROCEDURES HERE DO NOT
    FUNCTION CORRECTLY ON YOUR SYSTEM, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR PC MANUFACTURER
    OR SUPPLIER, AND REQUEST INSTRUCTIONS ON CHANGING THE PARALLEL PORT TO
    EPP MODE

    Hope this helps.

Hi,
The obvious reason to this problem could be that the video drivers are missing . You can try downloading the drivers from the following link

Nero start lg cd DVD WRITER


It should be a simple fix.

Right click on the Nero icon, choose Properties, then Compatability from the tabs at the top.

Make sure the 'Run in 640 x 480 screen resoloution' option is unticked.

Click ok and try again.

Please let me know the outcome as there maybe another fix if this doesn't work.
