Look around the scanner, there is either a locking screw or a locking bar in the back or bottom of the scanner.

your second problem is that if the scanner is seen in device manager as a scanner then your graphics editor should have the ability to "aquire" the data from the scanner.

window's "Paint" program, if you pull it up, go to "File" then "From scanner or camera" and then go from there.

Canon Canoscan LiDE 25 shows "USB device not recognized" on Vista Home Premium 32-bit


Point # 1 : Electronic devices are not made to be used sparingly or stored for long periods of time.

Point # 2 : 5-6 years is not 'barely' in-terms of an electronic device's lifetime (Given that the warranty for your device is about 1 year !).

Point # 3 : You obviously tried almost everything on the computer site of this issue, Its time to take your device to a service center.

Windows 7 will not recognize my v6upl scanner which worked in Windows XP. Problem seems to be that Device Manager sees it as an Unknown Device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers.


Unfortunately, Microtek doesn't support the V6UPL for any Windows OS beyond XP. The drivers are available here: http://support.microtek.com/downloads/bycategory.phtml?slct_tbl=1&slct_mdl=2 .

What version of Windows 7 are you running? Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version name ends with x64, you have the 64-bit version; otherwise you have the 32-bit version.

If you have the 32-bit version, try using the driver from the above site with the compatibility mode. Right click on the .exe file and choose Properties. Then select the compatibility tab. Set the program to always run in the compatibility mode for XP. Then right click again and choose Run as administrator. (You may need to disconnect the data cable and uninstall the Unknown device before trying to install the XP driver).

This will probably not work for Win7 x64. There are workarounds that you can use. You need to connect the scanner to a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a physical second computer, a dual boot computer or a computer running a virtual version of the older OS. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, or upgrade to one of those versions, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. Then install the XP scanner driver in the XP mode program as if that is the only computer running. The only issue is that you can't share files or your printer between the virtual and real computer at the same time. You will be prompted to uninstall the printer if you try to install it on both machines. You can put files on external media to share them. Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare. However, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS to use any of the other alternatives.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I can't get my scanner conected, it was conected, turned it off ,now can't get it to work. ion PIC2pc. Thanks Nan


Hello.

Be certain that you followed the step-by-step instructions (From ION Support):

1. Turn on the computer.

2. Insert the installation CD into the CDROM

drive and the installation menu will appear. *

3. When you see the installation menu, click Install Driver.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

5. When the driver installation is complete, click BlazePhoto to install the software.

6. Follow the on-screen instructions.

7. If your computer does not have DirectX 9.0 or greater or Adobe Reader, click those items to install them. (If your

computer is using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, Windows Vista, or Windows XP Professional, this is not

necessary.)

8. Click Exit to close the window.


Note: The first time you connect PICS 2 PC to your computer, wait a few seconds until you see a dialog box

that says "Found New Hardware" (this means the computer recognizes the PICS 2 PC). After you see this,

PICS 2 PC is ready to use.


If you followed the above instruction and still have a problem, reinstall (first, Remove from Add/Remove Programs) the software and be certain that the USB cable is snug.


If your computer is not recognizing the ION PIC2, be certain that your computer has a USB 2.0 port. Check your Device Manager to verify what USB port.


If still a problem, what error message(s) are you getting ? What operating system software (Vista, Windows 7, etc.) ?


Hope this helps.

Windows XP will not recognise the PF1800 USB scanner.


lease download and expand this ZIP file. The resulting folder contains files that need to be copied to varying directories.

It may well be that you need to make some system folders visible to theWindows Explorer before you can copy said files into them:
Choose "Tools" > "Folder options" > "View" from the Explorer's menu bar. Then please apply:
- hide protected system files: disabled
- show contents of system folders: enabled
- show hidden files and folders: show all
I recommend also, you want to disable "hide known file extensions".
Then please copy:
usbscan.sys > c:windowssystem32drivers
1394scan.inf > c:windowsinf
all other files > c:windowssystem32
Now you are ready to update the driver again:
(1) Windows key + Pause (or: open "System" from the control panel)
(2) Hardware > Device Manager
(3) Imaging device > unknown device > right-clicking > Properties
(4) Driver > Update driver
(5) Don't let Windows choose the device automatically, but choose the appropriate device yourself.
(6) The INF file necessary for the driver is named "1394scan.inf" andis most probably already located in the directory c:windowsinf
Please note: Even when the scanner is connected to USB (instead of firewire / IEEE1394) you need to use this INF file.
8) To complete your driver installation, restart Windows.
Check in the device manager if the scanner can now be detected.
