  • Vuescan Query

    Am I correct in assuming Vuescan will run on two scanners connected to the same PC. I picked up a new Hp scanner mainly for shunting paper but just for interest sake I've left the old one (Epson 1200) hooked up. Ones scsi and the other USB. I thought of comparing scans through a third party scanner program. That alas has fallen through as Mr Vuescan tells me it isn't configured for the HP yet. I'll hang on until its sorted.

    I dont think that vuescan will prove to be too versitile. You will probably have to get software for each device in order to get good results. At least that's been my limited experience. Good luck, Tom

      Ok Tom, its pointless running two seperate in house scanning programs for comparison. I'll have a float about and see whats available.

        My experience is that Vuescan does work on multiple scanners hooked up to the same PC. You have to have the scanner drivers installed, but I've used Vuescan on my HP6200/USB and my Minolta Scan Elite film scanner/SCSI both hooked up at the same time. I've also hooked up a Microtek Scanmaker 4/SCSI and Epson 636/SCSI at various times (having physically disconnected the HP6200 because of lack of desktop real estate, but leaving the drivers and other SW installed) and used Vuescan successfully with all of them. I can't remember which HP scanner you just got, but perhaps it isn't supported by Vuescan yet. Once it is, you should be able to use it on multiple scanners hooked up to the same machine just fine - as long as all of the scanners are supported by Vuescan.

          Epson 2450 Scanner Settings
          by Guest
          I just got it today...a new Epson 2450 scanner that will scan slides and negatives (yay!) as well as the usual flat bed stuff. I wonder if anyone else has this scanner and what you think of it? I have not even hooked it up yet so I haven't tried it. But I'm sure I'll have questions as to best settings...

          scanner recommendation
          by PJ Staley
          I'm going to be purchasing a new scanner soon. The one I currently have does not scan negatives or slides. I don't want to purchase a sub-standard product. Any (expert) opinions would be most appreciated. Thank you!

          New Scanner
          by Inspeqtor
          I am considering purchasing the Epson 4990 as recommended to me here earlier on another thread. I have a question about this scanner, does it scan normal documents? The Epson website mentions "the flexibility of a flatbed scanner" but that does not tell me very much. I am sure some of you...

          HP Scanner
          by akj
          Just wondering if any of you out there are working with a HP scanner? When I bought my scanner I was heavy into web design so I really didn't consider buying a high-output-end scanner--of course now I'm regretting this decision.

          I have a ScanJet 5300C and am reading all I...

          Film Scanner
          by KevinBE
          I don't know if anyone is interested but I bought a Minolta Speed Scan film scanner on ebay. I just couldn't pass it up because of the price. I know it's discontinued from production but it had a suggested retail of 1299.00 and it has had some good reviews. I think the last street price of this scanner...
