Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
OVT Scanner won't run with Windows 7. Vupoint (manufacturer) had downloadable drivers for windows, but they don't work. Any Solutions?
The Scanner is for slides and film negatives and is model FS-C1-Vp.
We suffered this initially on a new laptop with Windows 7. I can't tell if the driver on the Vupoint website has been updated, or is the old XP/Vista driver, but we installed this (1/2011). In Picasa or the Photoimpressions software which comes with the scanner, we were then only able to acquire solid black images. However, when we tried all of the USB ports on the computer, we found that one of them (a USB2 rather than USB1 port) was able to function like normal. We suspect there is a funny issue with the amount of power going to the scanner from different USB ports, and maybe this interacts with the driver in some way.

The driver provided by Ion for Vista works fine in Win7. At first though the scanner was not detected. Then I uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the x64 version (my Win7 is x64) and still no go :( Eventually I plugged the device in another USB port and boom, it worked fine.
