1) Install all of the usual Minolta software in Vista if you haven't already.
2) Create a new folder somewhere
3) Create a new txt file in that folder and name it minolta.inf and paste this into it:

; minolta.inf -- Test Vista Minolta Film Drivers
;
;
; To remove this driver and install the original
; manufacturer's driver, go into Device Manager,
; open Imaging devices, then click on the scanner name
; with the right mouse button and choose Uninstall.

4. Save file. Turn on scanner and go into device manager and update the old minolta driver with this driver. You may have to manually update it.
5. Once installed, all the normal Minolta programs now work just fine. Enjoy!

I tested this on Vista 32 Ultimate with a Dimage IV but it should work on all the models listed in the .inf file.

    Here we are, 2 years later, with a Minolta Scan elite 5400 II from eBay. And we have, for the past 6 months, been running Windows 7 64 bit on an old 6 year old dfi. Searched for driver, found this solution, applied it, worked like a charm 1st time. Many thanks to KainAnderson for allowing the old beast to live!

  • jogchum_reit Apr 27, 2011

    After an afternoon trying everything I did this and it worked immediately.
    Thanks very much.

I've been trying to get my Dimage 5400 II to work with Windows 7 64 bit version. The problem is that I keep getting an error message saying no driver is installed. I go to device manager and manually install the minolta.inf file I created by cutting and pasting as Kain suggested. I get a message that no driver is found. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Hi....I have the dimage elite 5400II also and I used solution number 2. I created the inf file also and replaced the driver with it and yet I get an error code 21 saying there is no scanner installed. Yet I see it in the device manager and it shows up in the import utility in photoshop yet won't launch. Any suggestions?

    Hi, thanks, my 5400 works now fine with win7 64 bit. Is there any way to make it work from inside Photoshop CS5 as a plugin? and not as a separate application? since last contact I downloaded the TWAIN support from Adobe for CS5, installed it in the 32 version of CS5. Now I see the Dimage 5400 from within PS, I click on it, it starts with the Logo and then error 21, scanner not found, any idea on how to solve this issue? Thanks again!

A couple of weeks ago I had to upgrade my machine and install Vista (Business, 32). At first I feared my 5400 would turn into an expensive doorstop, however, I discovered that not only Vuescan, but Minolta DiMAGE Scan (the final version, 1.1.5, available from Minolta.com) and <ta-daa!> SilverFast 6.4, work fine under Vista. So far, I haven't crashed the machine, so I guess I have a scanner for a few years. Silverfast 6.6 claims to work under Vista for the 5400 but it costs almost as much as the scanner did. :-(

I would like to thanks KailAnderson for his post: my 5400 works fine as usual, the only drawback is that I can't find it under "Import" menu in Photoshop, but it's only a minor problem.

Thank you !!!!!

Apparently Vuescan works on Vista with the 5400

Another solution is to run a virtual machine inside Vista.
As many of us have upgraded form xp to vista you can still use the xp licence to run xp inside vista as virtual machine using the xp drivers for the 5400 scanner.

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
