Question about Microtek SCANMAKER I900 Flatbed Scanner
The scanner was working fine, then I had my system rebuilt - new motherboard, CPU and RaM - so had to reinstall all drivers. Since then, my i900 will not work. I've installed and reinstalled the Scanwizard Pro software (which includes drivers) many times. Have even called Microtek and they gave me instructions for a totally clean install where I had to go into the registry and delete the Microtek entry and still no go. After the most recent clean installed, it looked like it would work. I opened Scanwizard Pro, it asked me to calibrate and for the time being, I skipped it. I then clicked the Overview button and got the message: "Fail to read image. System error 31, a device attached to the system is not functioning." When I clicked out of that, I got a second message: "Code -1007, not enough memory for driver to work." I have 2 gig of RAM installed. I know the scanner is working because I was able to successfully install it on my laptop. I have also checked in Device Manager and it says the scanner if working properly. I'm wondering if there is some kind of device conflict - or would this show in the Device Manager? I did have a new HP DVD burner with LightScribe installed with my other hardware upgrades. Also, in some web searches on the first error message, did see the bios mentioned, but nothing that clearly related to my specific problem. I'm just wondering if the guys who rebuilt my system didn't do something in the bios that is causing this problem. I must admit I've always found the Scanmaker touchy in terms of installing drivers and getting it to work - I previously had the 8700. Can anyone offer help? I'm desperate! Thanks, Cynthia
This is a funny problem. Try & locate SCanwizard 5 files and delete them. Complete the registry deletion as suggested. Run scandisk. Install and uninstall Scanwizard 5.

Try placing your paper at different places on the scan bed. Also if you have fluorescent lights on nearby turn them off.
Also is your driver compatiible with your OS?
Did you recnently upgrade anythin?

Microtek's last version was for 10.4 and is worth trying on 10.6.
Otherwise the popular VueScan supports virtually every scanner on the market. There is a free trial version to test your scanner here. http://www.hamrick.com http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#microtek
I've used VueScan for over 5 years and it's much easier to use than than Silverfast. The only downside is you can't scan from inside PhotoShop etc. as it's a standalone application and not a plugin
