How do I install scanner driver? No installation disc.

I acquired an old Afga 1212u USB scanner for a disabled friend of mine who uses Win 98. I found the supposed driver online, downloaded it (zip file) supposedly exracted it inti two different files and now I don't know what to do. Win 98 recognizes new hardware but cannot find driver. What do I do so it can find and install the software? HELP!

If one of the two driver files is a .exe then run that and it should do the rest for you. If the files are .ini or similar then you need to goto control panel, device manager and look for the item with the yellow exclamation mark next to it. Right click and choose install or update. If it asks if you want to install manually click yes, when it asks where to look for the file click browse and locate the two driver files you have. Click ok and it should install successfully.
Hope this helps,

I have a Agfa SnapScan 1212u, but I can't find a driver to it. I have the system Windows 7


Although Agfa no longer supports their scanners with drivers and software updates, some Vista and Windows 7 users say they are still able to install the XP software and get it to run. In another thread, broccauley said: 'I got my Agfa Snapscan 1212U scanner to work fine with Windows 7. All I did was to install the XP Agfa Scanwise 2.0.0.9 software FIRST (available from Agfa website). Then I went to Devices and Printers, right-clicked on the 1212U and chose "Troubleshoot" - Windows then found and installed the driver automatically.'
Good luck!

Snapscan 1212u and windows 7


I have found out the hard way that Windows 7 is exactly like Vista - i.e. incompatible with perfectly working equipment - for several PCI add-on cards and my trusted 1212u scanner. My solution: I'm ditching Windows 7 and going for Ubuntu. It supports the 1212u fine with the SANE package. It's ridiculously wasteful to toss working peripherals just because Microsoft can't be bothered to offer decent support for its paid software.

Are there drivers for the agfa snapscan 1212u in windows 7 platform?


As far as I can tell, the driver has not been updated for either VIsta or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you have a workaround option. Install the XP mode and then install the scanner to that virtual PC.

I hope this helps.

Where to get Agfa snapscan e 25 driver to scan into word? The driver on Afga link does not allow me to scan with destination to Microsoft WORD. Can anyone help? thanks, M


You need OCR (optical character recognition) software to scan text into Word. It is normally supplied with scanners so it's worth looking on the driver disc.

AGFA 1212u Snapscan is not working with win. xp


I did have a similar problem when I first installed XP - changing the compatibility settings to windows 95 or 98 in the properties dialogue box rectifited the problem.

Driver


If you are talking about the Agfa ePhoto CL18 Digital Camera, then you'll need drivers for the digital camera, not webcam drivers, but in a way, I use mine as a webcam sometimes, but using the drivers will only work for WIN95/98/98ME/98SE/WIN-XP etc. and the drivers won't work for WIN-Vista as Agfa discontinued supporting digital cameras and flatbed scanners, so I actually made Recovery disks for my WIN-Vista, so I could put that back unto this computer, which came with WIN-Vista, and used my WIN-XP disks and installed WIN-XP unto the computer just so I could use the WIN-XP driver. When installing the driver there's an error message telling me that it can't update DCOM, or DCOM95, or it can't update DCOM to WIN98, or some sort of error message, but I just rebooted the computer and the install completed. Sometimes however, the computer "loses track" of the driver or something because sometimes, when I start the Corel Photo House software, which came with the camera, there's a message telling me that it can't find the camera and that I should make sure that the camera is connected and turned on for example, but I found that if I go into the "add hardware" section again, then try the automatic install again, but instead of letting "it" find the driver, I tell the installer to choose how or where to look, the driver that was installed will show up on a list, then after I click on that choice, then it installs correctly...In other words, the driver installs correctly after installing it the first time, with the CD, then installing it a second time using the computer's "list" of drivers, if you know what I mean by that...It's where you click on where you choose what hardware you want to install and get the list of available drivers, if you know where I'm talking about?
Good luck in getting it going.

Microsoft Windows 98 for PC Problem is there any software driver for pen drive so that my win98 o.s. computer can detect any type or companies pen drive plz tell me


wow, the 90's are a calling... sure their is a roumor of a usb pen driver for win 98' ....

 

Windows 98, especially in it's second edition (also known as Windows 98SE), handles USB fairly well, however there are no generic/universal mass storage device drivers preinstalled in the operating system, so you will need to install some additional drivers for it. Some manufacturers do however, provide the Windows 98 drivers on CD, others have them available to download, and others simply do not have them available at all!!!!!!!

 

generic Windows 98SE USB mass storage device drivers:

 

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/drivers/nusb31e.exe

 

instructions?? :

  1. Download the exe file to the desktop
  2. Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
  3. Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
  4. Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager (*carefull)
  5. Run the exe file you downloaded, and follow the instructions, rebooting after installation
  6. When the computer boots up again, it may detect new USB 2.0 controllers, in which case you may need to reboot again

 

as always good luck! now im going to go back to my windows 95 and play Bioshock on full graphics!! excuse me = )

The VueScan program will work, but you have to go into device manager (Right-click "My computer" choose "Manage" select "Device Manager")

In device manager, you will probably see the scanner detected with a yellow triangle. Right-click the scanner and choose "Upgrade Driver" then choose "browse my computer for updated driver" and browse the the "VueScan" folder on your C drive.

Once you do that Vista will update to the VueScan Driver and you'll be ready to go (once you pay the nice folks at VueScan so that your scans don't have watermarks on them)
