It works fine on XP, I am using it with XP SP3 currently. You should download the current driver from Minolta. Install the software before hooking up the scanner. I prefer to remove any existing drivers and re-boot before installing new drivers.

Have you right clicked on the .exe file of windows 7 executable for the Minolta scanner to select compatibility to switch it back to xp.Have you tried to use third party twain drivers for scan software such as silverfast or vuescan instead?

Waar kan ik de software en drivers downloaden voor Minolta Dimage Scan Dual II AF-282OU - Schuif / Film Scanner


Hi ,
Er zijn geen Windows 7 versies meer .
Bent u in bezit van de W XP install disc , dan kunt u :
ofwel een virtuële versie van XP op uw schijf installeren : http://download.cnet.com/VMware-Player/3000-2094_4-10470784.html
ofwel uw schijf partitioneren en XP op de nieuwe partitie installeren : http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html
Beide zijn gratis , safe en heeeeel gebruiksvriendelijk .
Beste groeten .

I have Windows Vista and cannot find the software on my computer to run my Minolta Dimage Scan Dual II scanner. How do I use it with my computer? Thank you Jane Young


Hi ,

Could be because there are no drivers running under Windows Seven for this unit.
If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD ( http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/desktop_downloads/vmware_player/3_0 )
You could also partition your HDD ( http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html ) and install W XP on the new one .

Need drivers for Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III to work with Windows 7 64-bits


I used this solution from KainAnderson
1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Win 7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It may detect and install the original Konica Minolta Driver.
3) Create an empty folder on you harddrive (for instance go to my computer, double click on the c: drive, then right click and create a new folder named newminolta).
4) Open windows notepad and copy the following into it:

; scanners.inf -- Test Vista Minolta Film Drivers
;
;
; To remove this driver and install the original
; manufacturer's driver, go into Device Manager,
; open Imaging devices, then click on the scanner name
; with the right mouse button and choose Uninstall.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as newminolta.inf NOT as newminolta.inf.txt or newminolta.txt (i.e. c:\newminolta\newminolta.inf)
6. Go to control panel (View Devices and Printers).
7. Right click on Minolta Scan Dual III and click on properties.8. Select Hardware tab, then select Properties
9. Select Driver tab, then select update driver
10. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
11. Browse to c:\newminolta\newminolta.inf (or wherever you stored file) and click Next
12. Click Next. After running driver file Win 7 should now say it updated driver.
13. Run Dimage software with door closed. Wait for it to initialize and green light stops blinking.
14 Open door and insert film holder and start scanning.
Hopefully I've copied and amended the solution correctly

Can the minolta dimage scan dual III work with Windows vista? which drivers do I need?


Since Konica Minolta exited this market, they ceased developing new drivers for upgraded versions of Windows. The last version developed was for XP...so on the surface, it would appear that it may not work with Vista.

You may want to download the last driver version and try it. The worst thing that could happen is you'd simply uninstall it. You may also consider upgrading to Windows 7 and using the XP mode with it to use the Scan Dual III

4. Save file. Turn on scanner and go into device manager and update the old minolta driver with this driver. You may have to manually update it.
5. Once installed, all the normal Minolta programs now work just fine. Enjoy!

I tested this on Vista 32 Ultimate with a Dimage IV but it should work on all the models listed in the .inf file.

Second the Vuescan reco. That's what I use. OTOH, a dual boot machine with an XP partition can also solve the problem. A real PITA but feasible (I have one).

Computer does not recognize my scanner


The current software is 1.0.3. It does work with this scanner and XP.

You should install the drivers after removing the existing driver and software. Do not hook up the scanner until the drivers have been installed.

It might not show up under the Cameras and Scanners section in Control Panel but it will still work.

When you open Elements make sure your scanner is on with the door closed. Go down to where you import and look for the scanner to be listed. It will take a minute or two to go through its calibration routine and then you should be able to scan with it.
