Question about Epson Perfection 4490 Film / Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

I have a new Epson perfection 4490 photo scanner. I moved and can not find the CD that came with this unit. I never used it and can not find a copy of the CD to download. I would purchase one but live on SS and no longer can work. I enjoy photography and now have time to use it but can not for lack of this CD. Can you help me or direct me to a location where I may download a copy. Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter. Ray

My Epson Perfection 4490 Scanner insists on scanning my 35 mm slides as regular color photos. How can I switch the dscanner to scan my slides as slides?


Of course that is what it will do. The same as ti will do as a negative. Neither can be printed out other than as a picture.

Epson problem


Here is the download page

http://www.epson.co.uk/Store/Scanners/Epson-Perfection-4490-Photo/Drivers-Support?supportLandingPage=true

To scan to PC you need to use a prog with twain support the basic one in XP is paint.(start/all progs /accessories/paint/file/from scanner or camera) the scan appears huge but that's just the way paint does it save and open with another prog for printing (eg windows fax and picture viewer) and it wil be printed normal size.

When installing drivers do not connect scanner until told to do so by the install prog.

I have escndv.exe error problem with 4490 scanner. I've reinstalled the drivers and it still comes up


Hi there,

The first thing to try is uninstall the Epson Scan. Via either the start
menu item if one exits or from the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs.

Reboot computer.

Install the latest driver from the epson web site -
 
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=50666&infoType=Overview

Latest is 2.68A for WindowsXP, etc.
You should go ahead and download a fresh copy from the web, your copy may be
corrupted.

After the install, reboot.

If that does not solve the problem.
You got to go deeper.

Remove the Epson scan. (again).

Backup your registry.
Edit the registry and remove all references to the Epson Scan.
Remove the folders and entries for Epson Scan in \Windows\Twain_32\

Reboot:
Install Epson scan.

Good Luck!!

Epson 4490 photo scanner drivers will not install on winxp system


I'm running Windows XP and have had similar problems - where the install process informs of a problem (at beginning of install) and to "Restart and try again".

Eventually resolved issue by selecting "Custom" install, then ticking all the selection boxes as had been automatically done in "Recommended" install - then continue with the install.

All sections of software now installed correctly.

I have an Epson Perfection 4490 Photo unit and it is not working with my iMac with O S X 10.4.11 running Intel Core 2 Duo.  Not sure what I am doing wrong.  It used to work on my older mac.


Disconnect the scanner, uninstall the drivers. Restart the comp and connect the scanner with power-on. The comp would respond a new device found. Reinstall correct drivers and your are on!.
