The drivers for the scanner might have been corrupted
you might have to uninstall the scanner restart your computer then reinstall your scanner
if your printer/scanner came with an installation disc the drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall the printer/scanner restart your computer then reinstall the printer/scanner and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you might see a yellow?question mark this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options also have option to troubleshoot hope this helps

How do i use an epson filmscan 200 with a laptop running windows 7


were you using it under windows xp? if you have 32 bit windows 7 I would try those same drivers. Unfortunately the filmscan 200 came out under windows 95/98 and so Epson never released XP drivers and some people were able to make it work.
I would consider connecting it to an older computer running windows 98 and then transfer the files as you scan them (this would definitely be the least painful)
If you have 64 bit windows 7 I would not even waste the effort, 32 bit is a long shot maybe.
Do you have scsi drivers on the the windows 7? because the filmscan 200 is a scsi 2 device
Good luck

its possible that the driver for your older scanner is not compatible with vista this is often the case. the disc that came with your scanner will tell you this ie: for use with win 98, me, xp. if it doesnt say vista you will have to search internet for a vista driver or go to scanner make(ie: epson.logitek) internet site and see if there is a drver there. hope this helps

SCSI to USB conversion for Film Scanner


SCSI to USB converters are available, but I doubt they will be of much help for you, you'd still need a special driver for your scanner.
Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate support "XP Mode", essentially a Windows XP environment running in a virtual machine. I'd try to get the SCSI interface card and scanner to run inside the VM as a workaround.

My computer (Toshiba Laptop) cant see connected scanner umax Astra 1220S. Pots are ok whith other connections.What could be the fault ?


Like me, so, you would need to go to the Adaptec.com website and find your computer or scanner and download for "Free", the latest SCSI Card driver, in order for you computer to recognise that you have a SCSI Card in your machine. Once you restart your machine, you will find that your scanner, should work perfectly.

It will work fine with Xp but, not Vista. The user can download the appropriate driver update for XP on the Canon website under the support tab on the main website. this printer will work with XP. It will not work with vista.

Dell laptop wont recognize ls2000 scanner


The LS-2000 is a "legacy" device to XP and the Nikon software. It needs to be connected to a true SCSI bus adapter, and it's actually pretty finicky about which ones will work in XP. Sorry, you won't be able to use this with your laptop.

PC (Dell) won'r recognize scanner (nikon ls 2000)


This is a problem with SCSI bus speed too fast for the legacy device. The recommended SCSI controller is the Adaptec 2906, which will recognize legacy devices and slow the bus speed for them.

You also need an older ASPI driver set, version 4.70 available from Adaptec at http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/speed/software_pc/aspi/aspi_v470_exe.htm

Before you install the 4.70 version you need to be sure to remove any newer versions of these files: Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}ASPI32.SYS Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}WOWPOST.EXE Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}WINASPI.DLL Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}WNASPI32.DLL

These files may be found in WindowsSystem or WindowsSystem32. In order to delete them, you will need to restart your PC in Safe Mode. Once they are gone, restart your computer normally and run the ASPIINST.EXE program which was extracted by running the file downloaded from Adaptec.

Finally, you need Nikon Scan 3.1.2 for the LS-2000, available at http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/81

Connecting an older Minolta Dimage Elite film scanner to a newer computer running Windows Vista


Paul you might want to see if VueScan http://www.hamrick.com/ supports this particular scanner. It often allows older scanners to work on newer computers as it bypasses the Twain drivers.

Failure to connect printer to laptop


what's your printer model? Have you've checked the compatibility settings? Because not all models of printers and as well with software and hardware programs are compatible with a certain unit especially if its newer model/ version. If you're laptop is bit older of its age. You need to update and upgrade some of your'e devices and update them to make it will function well.if your'e installation CD is for Windows XP SP2 and Vista and your'e laptop is an running an older version of windows. it won't really install at all.ok?
