Question about AcerScan 620U Flatbed Scanner
I used my Acer scanner for years on my old computer with no problem. I installed it on my newer (rebuilt) computer. It all looks different now. I don't know if my son had it working through a different program (like Photoshop) or what. The thing is, that not long ago I successfully scanned a picture. I swear that in the startup menu, it had a mirascan scanner choice, which I don't have now. I realized that the installation disc that I have is disc 1. I can't find a second disc- my son may have taken it out of state- but whatever I did- maybe found the missing information online, including driver updates, I have lost this when I uninstalled and reinstalled while trying to solve this issue of not being able to scan successfully. The startup menu shows mirascan V 3.20, with choices of mirascan help and uninstall. I don't have the choice to go to mirascan scanner. It has 'copier'. In this, I seem to get everything ready to scan, but when I press the 'scan preview image' an error comes up saying 'set parameters failed'. I searched the entire help menu and it does not address this problem. I don't know what the message means- there seems to be no way to either set parameters or to remove them. Can you please tell me what I need to do? Thanks a bunch- Patti Rizzo
I have the same problem with my Acerscan 620U flatbed scanner which I have used for years, even with XP home SP2 & 3, after I reloaded the Operating system on the same machine, (after a crash) It would not work properly, so I searched for new drivers and softwareafter not finding anything useful here, I went to driverguide.com and found 2 files for the 620U. A zipped file containing the original (Win 95-98) install disks - 2Megs, (pasted from Driverguide);
Model Acerscan 620U Manufacturer Acer Operating Systems Win95, Win98 Device Type Scanner File Name disk1and2.zip
Uploader Notes This is the install softwarefor the AcerScan 620U, which is the USB model. I wasn't able to find itanywhere on driverguide.com and when I tried to download the latestversion off of the Acer website it didn't work, crashed my graphicsprograms. This one worked perfect.How it works
This will give you disk1.zip and disk2.zip
Unzip disk1.zip to a folder called disk1.
Unzip disk2.zip to a folder called disk2.
Runthe 'Setup.exe' file in the 'disk1' folder - halfway through it'll askyou where 'disk2' is. browse to wherever you've unzipped disk2 andthat's it!
I also downloaded a 14 meg file "mirascanv403u10.exe" (<a rel='nofollow' href="http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?el=1&driverid=128406">Acer AcerScan 620U Driver</a>) which is supposed to work with W95-98, ME, W2000, XP (with mixed reviews)and Mac-OSX, I haven't tried either of these yet although I will try the Mirascan file first. For many users the difference may be that when setting up an XP machine you have the option to use a FAT32 file system or an NTFS partition, it may be that the software doesn't work with the NTFS partition/filesystem.
If you send me a request to [email protected] I will send you either or both of the files as an attachment until Jan 10 2009 then I delete them, (or you can get them from Driverguide) I'll also let you know what worked for me.

I'm having the same problem with my scanner Primascan Colorado 2400. Looking for a solution I landed on this page.
Website of scanner:
Answers there: nihil.
I bought this scanner some years ago. Worked very well with WindowsME, and until yesterday as well with WindowsXP-SP2 on my overall usually very compliant and compatible modern computersystem.
I used to scan from IrfanView. It always called the scanmanagerprogram very satisfyingly.
But as of yesterday following error-message:
(translated from Dutch) "Can't find entrypoint of procedure [email protected] in DLL-file ImgProc.dll."
I've noticed that WindowsXP has two ImgProc.dll's in \system32.
One from the scanner-installation and one probably installed with WindowsXP.
I've installed and reinstalled this very decent scanner several times. And it gets wel detected, without hardware-conflicts.
But, as it worked perfectly before on this same system, it suddenly doesn't anymore.
Maybe I will come back here when I've found the solution if noone else has by that time.
