Minolta DiMage Scan Dual IV

I have not used my scanner in quite sometime, but every time I try to find the slides under "index scanner" it will not process. It reports: error 29, ICC profile cannot be opened. How do I solve this? HELP!

    I want to install Dimage Scan Dual IV van Konica Minolta under Vista

  • Anonymous Mar 22, 2008

    Exactly the same. No TWAIN driver for Vista. No support from Sony who now own Konica-Minolta. Scanner can be resuscitated by downloading VueScan (but you have to pay for it).

1) Install all of the usual Minolta software in Vista.
2) Create a new folder somewhere
3) Create a new txt file named minolta.inf and paste this 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.

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. All the normal Minolta programs now work just fine. Enjoy!

    You have to replace the original Konica Minolta driver with the custom one I posted above. Let me try to clarify my seteps.



    1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Vista.

    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.

    Fantastic many thanks for a simple fix. Saved my dual scan IV from being binned, managed to get the fix to work on win 7 home edition but not not on XP.

    This is sooo close - I've tried the above and it nearly works. The Utility now starts up, scanner whirrs a couple of times, then Utility hangs. I'm running Win 7 home premium 64 bit

  • ghardym Aug 15, 2011

    The driver worked but I can't get the scanner to function. When I insert the film holder it will go in a short distance and then eject. Does anyone have a suggestion?

  • Keith Sales Mar 01, 2012

    I have a Scan Dual III which now works with this fix under Windows 7 - many thanks!
    Just out of interest, where does one learn to program something like this?

  • harrybird Apr 08, 2020

    Absolute genius! Thanks so much. So many folks say they have a solution but turns out they don't. Yours worked perfectly. Thanks again.

I solved this problem by using VirtualBox to create a virtual disk in Vista, install XP inside it, and install minolta dimage scan dual with its drivers. It works perfectly ( and can use it for other software that needs XP ). After that, just share the scaned jpeg with Vista.

Does anyone have a service manual for a Minolta Dimage Scan dual IV? I think I have dust on a mirror or lens and seed to take it apart. Having the service manual will make it a lot easier.

During slide scanning, after performing auto focus and auto exposure, get error message "there was an error in performing a post processing" any suggestions? using Nikon cool scan v ed


First suggestion would be to connect scanner to another PC to see if the problem persists. Might also help to try to scan with alternative material (mix if slides and negatives) to narrow down where the issue lies. You could also play with features such as Digital ICE on and off. I'm afraid if none of these produce a functioning scanner you will need to contact Nikon to arrange a repair. There is really nothing the typical user can do to fix these machines at home.

The scanner will not process slides but performs all other copyin


The problem is resolved.
I continued searching the internet until I downloaded the Manual for ConoScan 3000F. The procedure for film scanning had a diagram of the sleeve referred to in the error report.
After removing this sleeve from the underside of the lid everything went well.
ïf all else fails read the instructions" . The problem is to find them when paper is no longer used.
