Question about Polaroid i-Zone Webster Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

Software won't load

The scanner is connected to a serial port. I've inserted the installation CD, but it doesn't autostart. I've tried to open the installation file directly from the file, and tried to run D:/setup.exe as the instructions say, but nothing happens.

Your antivirus or system profile is quietly getting in the way, likely.  Check logs if you like, then do the footwork to let installer programs run.  Contrawise you can copy the driver to a directory someplace and install from there, perhaps using RunAs (in WinXP.)
  Perhaps you should say which OS you intend to install it on?

Error please connect omnivision photo scanner


ser Guide for this scanner and it states:
.
I would assume this is the software on the CD and not a downloaded version which may or may not be the same.
It also says:
Note: Please "scanner" any prior version before installing this version.
I think I would start over and try again. Check that all versions, either working or not, are removed via 'Programs & Features' then try the installation of the CD again.
Insert the software CD in the drive then close any Autoplay window if it appears.
Now go to Computer, and right click the CD/DVD drive > Explore.
If you see a Setup or Setup.exe or similar, D/click to try and install the software.

Am looking at buying a friends 320 scanner, He cant find the booklet or cd 4 it. also doesn't have the parallel cable eather. Can i get this from the company? Also I havw windows xp. will this work on...


First you would need to make sure you have a parallel port on your computer, because if you don't, you would need to get an adapter of some sort for either a p2p or usb port, whichever you prefer. I'm not sure if you can get a parallel cable from the manufacture, but you could probably find it on eBay. With an older scanner and a newer computer, you can probably just plug it in and it will work, but if you need the software, go here: http://www.nodevice.com/driver/320P/get25293.html

Hope this helps!

I have installed HP PHoto and Imaging Softward for ScanJet 3570c 48 bit. Everytime I try to click on icons on the scanner, my computer shows an error message that there is a problem with connecting to the...


Does the same error occur if you launch a scan from the computer? What OS do you have? Vista only has a basic driver available and does not support the scanner buttons. (You can launch the scans from a number of options: third-party software, Windows Fax and Scan (new scan), Microsoft Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan) and Windows Photo Gallery.)

If the error occurs when you launch the scan from the computer, try a new data cable and different USB ports. Try a direct USB connection if you use a hub. Then check your USB ports and the drivers for the USB. (For Windows, look in the Device Manager. Start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager (exact directions will depend on the OS).

The HP Photo and Imaging software requires you to set the default scan destinations in the software before you can use the buttons on the scanner (for those OS/driver versions that support the feature). Always open the software and scan from the computer to see what the defaults will be. Each version of HP's imaging software set up these buttons differently; the help option is useful. Try Scan > Scan settings to find where to set the color and black & white destinations.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your OS and whether the computer can launch a scan, I'll provide additional help if I can.

    Canoscan Lide 30 compatibility with Windows 7.


    There are no official drivers for CanoScan Lide 30 for Windows XP, so your problem is obvious. I suggest you sending an e-mail at Canon including details about your scanner (date purchased, serial number in text form or scanned) asking them to develop driver set as this model is very trade and at shops since 2006 or 2007.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

    How to install it in Windows Vista?


    sure not hard at all. all you have to do is:

    1. Close all open programs on the computer.
    2. Locate the HP Photo & Imaging software CD-ROM that is appropriate for the language and operating system and insert the CD-ROM disk into the computer.
    3. For a Microsoft(R) Windows computer: Follow the instructions on the screen. Or, if the installation program does not start automatically:
    4. Click Start , then click Run . The Run window will open.
    5. In the Open box type: X:\SETUP.EXE (where x is the letter of the CD-ROM drive).
    6. If the instruction prompts to shut down the computer, do so.
    7. Connect the USB cable between the USB port on the scanner and the USB port on the computer.
    8. Connect the power cable between the scanner and a surge protector or a grounded wall outlet. This turns on the scanner.
    9. If necessary, turn the computer on again.
    this product is no longer being supported by HP so here is a link to updated drivers if needed.
