Cannot install software

I have insterted the software disk, but when I attempt to install I get a message that says "a newer scanner driver has already been installed" and it will not install the software. Do I need to find and uninstall the "newer driver"? How?

Did you connect the scanner to your computer before loading the CD? There is an updated driver available from Canon that your operating system may have found and already installed. Try loading your CD again and this time select "Custom Install" instead of "Easy Install." After selecting Custom Install, the next screen will show all of the programs that will be installed. De-select the ScanGear box so that this software doesn't try to install as it is the updated one that is already on your computer most likely. Click install and the install should proceed this time.

Hello Gerald Mayer,
Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
To answer your question: You will need to re-install the Nimcard Express software for the scanner to work properly. It is needed as the OCR software for the scanner. If you need a newer version, there are plenty of them to choose from on eBay!
Have a great day!

I have driver vsc101u.exe and will it work with win7 or do i need to download a newer version? Thanks, Frank Carlen


The current version of the driver for the PrimeFilm 3600U is 1.18c. You can download it from here: http://www.scanace.com/support/Cyb_X_SF.htm . This is Win7 compatible.

The only vsc101u.exe for a scanner that I know is for the Umax scanner and is not compatible with Win7. (It was for Windows 98/Windows 2000)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(attempting to install the older driver will tell you fairly quickly if it is compatible. Most Win7 installs are 64-bit and the install routine will stop when it hits an unsigned driver (common for 32-bit software).)

Pls disconnect the scanner, uninstall scanner driver and switch of the computer. After restarting, run Scan disk and then install appropriate driver for MAC OS and connect the scanner. This should work.

Scanner not working need software install


hi friend,

u can download software in
www.econtentos.com/scanner-driver.htm

Installing a scanner on newer PCs is pretty straight-forward. If the scanner is a USB device, you'll need to install the software CD that came with the scanner. These will normally be one or two disks and a few others that usually only prove to be trial software or other programs you do not need. Be wary of installing these third-party CDs, as you likely will never use them and they tend to want to take over the way media is handled on your computer.

First, unpack the scanner from the box. Make sure you have all of the attachments and especially the quick setup instructions if they were in the box. You can assemble the scanner and set if off to the side. You can plug the power cable in, but do not plug the USB cable into the computer.
Boot up the computer and load the scanner software disk into the CD ROM drive. If it does not launch automatically, you can navigate to it through My Computer and click the setup.exe file. If there are additional disks for your scanner that need to be loaded, you will be prompted for them.
Once the software has been installed, you can then attach the USB cable to the computer. Windows should find the new scanner and load the drivers for it automatically.
Troubleshooting Scanner Problems:

If your scanner had worked in the past but has stopped functioning, you can usually unplug the scanner, then go to Add / Remove Programs in the Control Panel and remove the scanning software. Then you can repeat the installation process above.

thank u for using fixya

Can't scan


Any idea what MSI error message you had? HP has a product page for the PSC 1315. Click here to go to the product page. Once you're on the product page, you can search for MSI and you'll get a number of pages to choose from. You need to know the specific error message to choose the right one. HOWEVER, those errors mostly look like ones you'd see while installing.

If you didn't see those errors when you were installing, you might try to uninstall and reinstall your software/drivers. The drivers HP has for download are newer than the drivers that were on the CD when you bought the printer. The newer drivers are available here.
