Question about Pacific Image PrimeFilm 1800u Film Scanner (35 mm)

1 Answer

Unreconizable image I am using the latest XP Driver, cyberview 1.17, Photoshop and/or Gimp. WinXP, USB2 port back of tower. No other scanner is installed. When cyberview is asked to scan: The scanner goes through its calibration exercises and finally scans. the result is a faded greenish background with streaks of other coulors running through it. I am suspecting a firmware problem but am not sure. Any Ideas?

    I am already using the latest driver from the Pacific image site. I will take the thing apart and check connections, dust etc. the lamp appears sort of pinkish while scanning, so I think your suggestion re CCD is certainly the problem. I does go thru all the appropriate motions but the result is not what one would expect. i will let you know if this fixes it.Thanks

Try updating your scanner driver/software to isolate the problem. If same issue still occurring after uninstalling/reinstall, then source of the problem may be a CCD/lamp failure or some sort of dust, lint, on CCD causing calibration failure.

I have not used my PrimeFilm 1800i for quite a while and find that I probably need a driver on this computer. I used to use it but I am not sure which of my computers it ran on. What can I do to make...

You need to install a CyberView X scanner driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X.
On Mac OS X, you need to run VueScan with Rosetta, since CyberView X is a PowerPC program. To do this:
  1. Click on the VueScan icon while holding the Control key
  2. Choose 'Get Info'
  3. Check 'Open using Rosetta'

How do i select the destination of a scanned file ie photoshop using epson scanner tx550

Firstly, the best way to get more from the scanner is to use it via an image application which is twain compatible e.g. serif photoplus, photoshop or gimp. Run the program, click file, then either aquire or import depending on the application you are using, the twain will then start the scanner software, use the scanner software as shown in the manual and this will produce the scanned image in e.g. photoshop. Click file on the program and click save as. This will give you the opportunity to save the file either onto the internal hard drive or an external memory stick etc. hope this helps

Lost installation CD

Well, I cannot help you with a disk, but I can offer this insight:

Seems this scanner only works with USB2 ports, and if you only have USB1 ports, you will not have any luck.

Additionally, while I cannot help you with drivers, I have found others who say that Windows XP (and it is assumed Vista) does not need drivers to operate this scanner.

Simply go to the Control Panel, (after it's plugged in to a USB2) and click on Scanners and Cameras. The operating system will guide you through a wizard which will allow you to scan images into your computer.

Once there, however, you are sort of on your own to choose the software you want to edit those images.

good luck

USB2 Problem Windows thinks My card is USB1.1

what do you mean when you say that the 4 USB2 ports are all occupied?
when you say that there are 2 USB1 ports on the back of the case: are those ports connected to the motherboard at all?

what devices are you using to test your USB ports? is it possible that those are USB 1 devices?
