Mac OS X Leopard & Dimage Scan Elite II

I have successfully used Dimage Scan Eleite II with Windows for several years.  When I installed your Mac software, I was able to complete a few negative scans using DiMAGE Scan Launcher and DiMAGE Scan  Easy. When I now try to open those two programs, an error message appears telling me that another DiMAGE program is open and preventing the desired program from opening.  I have carefully searched OS X and find no programs open.

Forget about the Minolta software. It's buggy at best with OS X. Use VueScan instead. A free trial is available so you can test it before you commit to buying it.

Driver for mac os 10.7.5


The last Mac OS X version officially supported by that scanner is Mac OS 10.4 Tiger. You *MAY* be able to get it to work under Mac OS 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard but otherwise there is NO way to get it to work with 10.7, 10.8 or 10.9 since these are Intel only platforms (the scanner software is PowerPC PPC.) Your only option is to run a Windows XP virtual machine inside your Mac and to it that way. I can assist you with that if you like.

Konica Minolta Dimage scan dual film scanner will not connect to windows 7


It's possible there are no drivers running under W 7 for this remarkable unit and it's a shame .
If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD .
You could also partition your HDD and install W XP on the new one .
Otherwise ... trashbin . Yes , life is hard .

I am attempting to use my Dimage Scan Dual 4, with windows 7, but I receive an error 4 message, stating that the scanner connection cannot be confirmed. Any ideas? Ron


1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Vista/Windows 7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It will detect and install the original Konica Minolta Driver.
3) Create an empty folder on you harddrive (for instance go to my computer, double click on the c: drive, then right click and create a new folder named newminolta).
4) Open windows notepad and copy the following into it:

; scanners.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.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as newminolta.inf NOT as newminolta.inf.txt or newminolta.txt (i.e. c: newminolta newminolta.inf)
6. Go to system control panel (may have to change control panel to classic view to see system).
7. Select Device Manager
8. Select Imaging Devices
9. Right click on Minolta Scan Dual IV and click on driver tab. Select Update Driver.
10. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
11. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
12. Select Have Disk
13. Browse to c:\newminolta newminolta.inf and click OK
14. Click Next. Vista should now say it updated driver.
15. Run Dimage software with door closed. Wait for it to initialize and green light stops blinking.
16. Open door and insert film holder and start scanning.

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.

Dimage Scan Elite Windows XP installation problem


you've probably long since fixed this, but when this happened to me, i needed to unplug the scanner entirely from the computer, deinstall the driver, reinstall the driver, then plug in the scanner, let it be detected, and then it worked. another time when this happened and the above didn't work, i had to delete a usb root something-or-other, reboot yet again, let windows fix itself first, then do the scanner install all over again.

Can't start up Konica Minolta Elite 5400 II


This problem usually occurs when the scanner software crashes, or the scanner is turned off in operation, or the computer is shut down before you quit the software, etc.  
The K-M driver software gets corrupted.
I use mine with a Mac G3 Tower and OS-X v 10.4.9.  What I do is search for all the Konica-Minolta components using OS-X spotlight and then delete them.  After reinstalling the K-M driver software and restarting the mac, the scanner should work fine.
