i am surprised that it is not a stand alone scanner. for almost the same price i have a wolverine which basically works on mains power, or powered from laptop. it scans and stores the images in the unit. those can be later transferred to the laptop while connected via usb. one question, does the scanner lcd show the scanned image? if not may be something is wrong with the unit itself.
Visioneer doesn't support this scanner for any OS past XP. If a generic TWAIN scanner driver doesn't work, the single computer workaround is to use a virtual computer with XP. (If your old computer is still working, you can keep the scanner on that and transfer files on an optical disc (CD-R or DVD-R depending on the old computer's specs) or USB flash drive.)
If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can do run an XP virtual computer for free. Download Virtual PC and XP mode, install XP mode in the Virtual PC program and install the scanner to the virtual computer. To transfer files back to the real computer, you probably will need to save to external media. For other versions, you will need either Virtual PC or another virtualization program and a licensed copy of XP.
I had the same problem with about 1 out of every 16 slides when I first got the scanner. The only way I found around it was to rearrange the slides and try again. I started scanning through the ScanGear software instead of Canon Toolbox, and haven't had that problem since. I've scanned about 6,000 slides and negatives so far.
Make sure the rectangular slots at either end of the film frame are not obstructed or covered in any way. When I attempted to scan color negatives I had the same darkness problem in the scanned image. When I cleared those rectangular slots, everything was fine. I hope this helps.
1) On the existing PC, start the Job registration tool, click the "Administrators" button (on the bottom of the dialog), then click the "Backup" button in the dialog that appears. This will save a registry file that you can then transfer to the new PC.
2) Use regedit to browse to the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Canon Electronics Inc.\DR-1210C-JobTool
branch. Save this branch to a file, then transfer it to the new PC.
try this Turn on the scaner (diode is blinking), then run aplication DS Dual3 After start application you sould hear the transport mechanism test. The green diode should light permanently (important). Push deeper the holder.
