I use a Minolta Scan Dual 4 film scanner with Vista64. About a year ago I got word of and used a driver that allows it to be recognized in Vista since there is no Vista or newer driver for it.

But About a week ago it wasn't recognized when starting the scanning software with the dreaded Error 1 which causes reinstallation of the scanning software. This takes 2 reboots of my computer. And today it got back to that same error 1 and another uninstallation and reinstallation of software plus 2 reboots. All I can think of is a Windows update was installed that rejects non-digitally signed drivers which this driver is.

Any other thoughts? I really dont want to spend 15 minutes messing with my scanner every time I want to use it!

Does VueScan see it?


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

The whole point of finding the Vista driver was to eliminate needing an old computer, so no thanks.

I tried VueScan once and did not like its very limited scanning controls.
