Boot off the XP pro cd. When it asks for which partition you want to install onto, select your main partition and press 'D' to delete the current partition, then follow the prompts to create a new partition in its place. It will no longer complain about previous versions being installed.

WARNING: this will wipe all the data off your PC.

Can see pictures cannot open


Put in the cd with drivers and utilities already installed on your computer. Some of the programs might have been corrupted or not installed in the first place. Install the programs and you should be able to open your picture files.

You don't need to purchase drivers for your video device or video card because it is free distributed by the manufacturer. you can find the drivers in the manufacturer official website or other websites. If you use onboard video device you must know first the model of your motherboard. after knowing the model of your motherboard search the motherboard drivers in google.com or yahoo.com if you find the driver make sure it is compatible with your version of Operating System for example Windows 95,98,NT,2K,XP 2003, 2005 or Linux OS or MAc.. select the driver according to your version of OS.

If you use Video Card know the model of your video card and search it in the net. if you find the drivers make sure you click the drivers compatible with versions of your Operating System. TY

HOPE I CAN HELP

RAW file system


RAW file system is typical of an unformatted hard drive and is the default state for most new retail drives because the manufacturers won't know which operating system their customers are going to put on the drive or use it in conjunction with.

Most operating system installations come with utilities to partion and and format new drives see fdisk from MSDOS (specifically versions 5 and higher) And MS Windows 3.1 through 95,98 and ME which all used the FAT32 file system as default and would partition and format during installation. Windows NT similarly would partition and format the drive during install to the NTFS system, as do all versions of Windows XP.

if you are not installing a new OS but setting the drive as a slave to a currently installed drive then you can use a program like Partition Magic or similar to detect the installed drive and partition / format it tou your requirements

May 12th, 2008: Some customers reported problems installing Studio Plus version 11 UPGRADE (11.0) or Studio version 11 Standard (11.0) on systems with Windows XP Service Pack 3 was already installed (a message asking for Windows XP Service Pack 2 is displayed). Pinnacle is investigating this problem.
We can offer you the following workaround:
  • Copy all the content of the Installation DVD of Studio version 11 to your hard disk in a new folder.
  • Download http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/Studio11/WelcomeSP3.exe
  • Copy the file WelcomeSP3.exe to the root of the directory where the Installation DVD was copy
  • Double-click on WelcomeSP3.exe to launch it. It will take few seconds and then the Studio version 11 installation will start.

Windows xp problem


Hi

It seems you installed an outdated (16bit Program) for the ScanMaker 4. 16Bit applications/programs and generally DOS based (Windows 3.x and 95) and will not run properly from Windows XP.

First, check http://support.microtek.com/product_dtl_2.phtml?prod_id=23 and download and install Drivers and Plugins for Windows XP.

You may need new 3rd Party Scanner/Image Applications that work in Windows XP. However, if you still want to use the 16Bit application then you will need to run the program in 16Bit Compatibility Mode. To do this, right-click the program executable or shortcut, choose propertise from the drop-down menu, go to the Compatibility Tab and put a tick in "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" From the drop down menu, choose Windows 95 or 98 and apply.

Finally, check the the User's Guide or ReadMe file(s) (if you have it) for more info. Especially, check the recommended OS for the Applications.

I might be wrong, but i think ScanMaker 4 has a SCSI interface. If this is correct, then your laptop or port replica must have a SCSI port. NB: SCSI is not the same as Printer LPT Port.

Regards
Mike
