Hi alistair49,

Firstly, is your laptop connected to the internet when trying to install your scanner?
Windows 7 will automatically browse Microsoft's online database of drivers if it's not found in your laptop database.
If you are in fact having driver issues, have you checked the following web page to locate your scanner software?

http://www.medion.com/gb/service/download/driver.php

If, however, you have the drivers, make sure that these are compatible with Windows 7 as your scanner was manufactured before Windows 7 existed. In this case try using Windows 7 compatibility wizard to install your scanner software.

You can do this by right-clicking on the installation file & selecting "troubleshoot compatibility" from the drop-down menu. Simply follow the on-screen directions step by step to check if Windows 7 has compatibility issues with your scanner software. In most cases this procedure should solve your problem.

Best wishes,
Graeme.

Medion flatbed scanner 90093


The message you are getting is not the actual problem. Clearly your PC has enough memory to do scanning, are you sure medion scanner is compatible with 64bit OS? could you try this on a 32bit machine?

If you installed a windows 7 compatible driver it should work. If the driver you installed is not compatible try running the "troubleshoot compatibility" by by right clicking on the scannner program icon then click on troubleshoot compatibility.

Unable to scan after install windows vista home premium w sp 1


You don't have bi-directional communication between the all-in-one and the computer. (If you launch the scan command from the computer, Windows Photo Gallery, Paint or a third-party program). Solve this with a new USB cable. If you are using a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

If you can't launch the scanner from the buttons on the all-in-one, that is due to the fact that you are using the driver in the Vista OS. HP does not offer a full-feature software for this printer for Vista.

In Paint, to acquire a scan: File > Import from Camera or Scanner, Choose Scanner then New scan.

I hope this helps.

Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (eg Dell A920) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Scanning problem with A940 AIO Dell printer/scanner


    Hi there, just found this solution to work perfectly. i just freaked out for a moment with the same problem. Use this or just type fax and scan in your help function. Hope this helps!

    Before you begin, make sure that you've installed your scanner on the computer and that the scanner is turned on.
  1. Windows Photo Gallery.
  2. Click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
  3. In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click the scanner that you want to use, and then click Import.
  4. In the New Scan dialog box, click the Profile list, and then click Photo. The default settings for scanning a picture are automatically displayed.
  5. If you're using a scanner with a document feeder, click the Paper size list, and then click the size of the picture that you've placed on the scanner or click the size that most closely matches the picture.
  6. Click the Color format list, and then click the color format that you want the scanned file to display.
  7. Click the File type list, and then click the file type that you want to use to save the scanned file.
  8. Click the Resolution (DPI) list, and then click the resolution, in dots per inch, that you want to use.
  9. Adjust the brightness and contrast settings or type the values that you want to use.
  10. To see how the picture will appear when it is scanned, click Preview. If needed, modify the scan settings, and then preview the picture again. Repeat these steps until you're satisfied with the preview results. Some scanners might require you to place the picture in the document feeder each time that you scan.
  11. Click Scan. When the scan is complete, Windows Photo Gallery prompts you to tag the picture so that it's easier to organize or find later.
  12. In the Tag these pictures (optional) list, type a tag name, and then click Import. Windows Photo Gallery displays the picture so you can view, fix, or organize it.
