Question about Epson Perfection 1660 Photo Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Is not recognized by other programs and won't let me re-install

I've had the scanner for a couple of years and it worked fine. I had some hard drive issues and replaced them. My programs such as adobe 6.0 and Epson cd printing software cannot find my scanner. I have uninstalled it completely, unplugged the scanner, and tried reinstalling with the original cd that came with the scanner. It recognizes that there is a scanner registered and gets as far as the license agreement. It won't display any of the license text, and then gives the message that if failed to install.

No software to install epson 2490 scanner


Try going to epson.com. Then go to the Drivers and Support page and look up your scanner. The Drivers and Downloads link is one of the first items in the list. I could not find a model 2490 on the site.

I hope this helps.

Error message


What is your operating system?

If XP, check your device manager to see if the scanner is being recognized by XP.

What is your scanning software?
Try to use another scan program ( a free demo version should work fine.)

Are you using TWAIN or an ISIS driver? If it is a TWAIN driver, then any Photo editing program should be able to connect ( usuallly!?).

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.
