Logitech freescan 3.1 multisheet scanner - how to make it work please

Thank you so much for allowing me to ask this question! Greatly appreciated, regardless of whether anybody can help - its so wonderful to be able to help others and to have a chance to receive help in turn, when one needs it oneself and is in unfamiliar territory!

I have a social enterprise project to do which requires several thousand pages being OCR scanned. I have an old Logitech multisheet scanner, a Freescan 3.1 for Windows 95 which I have connected to an old PC running Windows 95 as its has the right connection for the scanner cable. I understand (please correct me if its not the case!) that there is no other cable that is USB that would be available to use instead.

I've installed the Freescan 3.1 software and all seems well until I attempt to calibrate the scanner - the calibration sheet feeds into the scanner, spits out, and then the data transfer to calibrate never seems to go anywhere except into some loop than can only be 'exited' from by pressing a button on the scaner itself, performing 'an illegal operation' which allows me to quite from the computer screen.

I've tried to uninstall the Freescan software but the message comes up that it is corrupted. I tried re-installing but the problem remains the same. I plan to try and manually delete everything that l suspect is related to this software and to try reinstalling but perhaps it would be helpful to know what might be the reason for the problem. Could it be because the software is for Windows 95 and I'm running Windows 98? Is there another driver I should try? If so, where do I find it? I'd have to drag it off a USB stick as I've lost the card that enabled internet connection off that PC - will the PC automatically install new drivers in a suitable location from a USB stick?

Thanks again for any insights you can provide. It seems a shame not to be able to use this hardware and to have to reinvest in new hardware for a one-off job.

    thanks so much for the suggested link however it only took me to logitech CAMERA drivers not to a solution for a Logitech FREESCAN SCANNER - any suggestions taking me to the scanner would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks again!

Hi, the logitech freescan software is NOT capable of running under windows 98 nor XP. It is for windows 95. BUT, by a wierd issue during its rewrite ( windows that is), the freescan software DOES work under windows Me.This is a fact, as I am using a freescan scanner on an old Dell laptop with Windows ME on it. Hope this helps with your problem. Can anyone help me, as I need a calibration sheet for this same scanner. A pdf copy would do, if anyone has one please email it to Thanks

The scanner takes 2 sheets of paper at a time instead of 1 so only 1 is being scanned. I've tried a different paper that is thicker than regular printer paper and it's still doing it.

There is a pad below the feed roller that wears out. It is called a ****** pad, it retards the feeding of extra sheets of paper. That pad will need to be replaced. Once it is it will stop multisheet feeding.

Line on Scanned Documents

There is a spot on the thin strip of glass that sits next to the large scanner glass. Because you are moving the paper when using the feeder, a spot appears as a line. Shining a flashlight on the glass can help you locate it. You can scrape it off with a finger nail or clean it with a damp cloth.

USB connection fails

Hi, There shouldn't be any problem really. A couple of things you can try: 1. Verify that you have SP2 in the new Dell; 2. Verify that you have USB 2.0; 3. Verify that all your USB are enabled in your CMOS/BIOS; 4. Un-check "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" in your USB Power Management; 5. Try other USB ports (front/rear). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Reinstalling 2400 scanner driver

If this scanner was previously used on a Win95/8/ME system the likely hood of it working with and NTFS[3000/XP] system is slim. This is because the two system work in different ways and the scanner design for 95/8 does not recognise commands from a NTFS computer. Two thing to try Go to Mt computer/Help/Compatibility and read it up. then right click on the scanner software and click on properties/compatibility and set it to Win98- see what happens You could checkout Xerox for driver updates also. But don't hold your breath
