Heidelberg 2650 Linoscan scanner and XP

A friend of mine was given a Heidelberg 2650 Linoscan scanner (which was used on a Mac before. He connected it to his XP-box (he said he has got a SCSI-port on his PC. Should the 2650 work on XP as well, do we need additional drivers (as said, it used to be linked to a MAC).

Linoscan 2650 was designed for Mac, there is no Heidelberg Software for using in it with a PC. Maybe Silverfast Software will run the scanner but you will loose the many advantages that the awarded Linoscan Software has to offer.

There is no solution to this issue, Linoscan 2650 won't run in a PC, not even in a Mac without OS9, period.

Check this link for a bit of info about the scanner. I agree: Heidelberg no longer support the model so you will have a lot of trouble finding spares - I searched a lot and the only place you can find these now seems to be e-bay. I would be tempted to say get a new scanner, but it is just possible that replacing the lamp if you could get one or cleaning the inside may help, but a scanner usually only has a few years life in it. Just possible the lamp is standard, if you can get to it and get a part number from it, perhaps we could find one online. Hope this helps :)

Years ago, upon my suggestion, the company I work for purchased a Linoscan 2200 with the Newcolor 5000 software and I am in need of some updated software. I used the scanner and software on the same...

I am running Newcolor 5000 on an XP box. There are some issues but it does run fine. I just ignore the "out of memory" messages that pop up and keep scanning. Upon booting, the device manager will try to install the scanner (that needs to be on to be recognized). It will need to be cancelled seven times. This happens every boot, not ideal but it's how I do it. For a while I was dual booting to W2K but now just tolerate the eccentricities of Newcolor.

Linoscan manual

Setup is easy just plug in the cable in to the scanner and the other end of the cable plugs in to the back of the computer and make sure your computer is off. After you plugged them both in, plug in your power supply for your scanner then turn on your computer and it should do the rest.
