Default Drivers for Heidelberg Linoscan 1400 Scanner? VueScan?

Hi,

I am about to start assisting a photographer to set up a Heidelberg
Linoscan 1400 Scanner under Windows XP.

Obtaining the SCSI II card should be straightforward (but not
necessarily cheap) but given the age of this scanner we are having
trouble locating any drivers.

We have found the VueScan site which offers software plus drivers for
$39.95 for the standard edition, but all Google searches seem to turn
up for drivers are the "bend down, grip your ankles and prepare to be
shafted" sites which try to download many things but not the driver.

Does anyone know a safe, reliable source of drivers (preferably free)
for Windows XP?

Is VueScan a good option?

The alternative is to use the SANE drivers under Linux.
I an confortable with Linux but it is likely to be a steep learning
curve for the photographer.

Any suggestions very welcome.



Just to note that we went with the VueScan softrware which integrates
well with the Windows based photo editing software.


That scanner is the same as the Umax Powerlook III, Heidelberg don't
make scanners just re-badge them. This you were told.

But then again you have been on this for quite a while, as you did know
last year.

If you were fortunate to refer back had all the necessary information.

Other party downloaded VueScan before the scanner was working over SCSI (had
found it very early in the exercise), saw it worked, was happy with the
interface and price.
So your information was not deliberately spurned, as an act of direct spite.
There was no need to sift through Umax drivers to try and locate the correct
one as the scanner was already working.
Looking back up the thread, I see that I had found information to suggest
that the scanner was not actually the one you indicated but another slightly
lower spec model.

Equally, the PC was powerful enough to run Ubuntu under VMWare and use SANE
to interface to the scanner from within Windows.
Again, this solution was not required because of the ease of using VueScan.

The information you provided was useful and gratefully received, but did not
place us under any obligation.

I updated this thread to note which solution we went with.
Anyone reading the thread would see all the information offered.

It might have been a little more polite, perhaps, to merely enquire if we
had tried the Umax drivers as you had previously suggested?

Cheers
