Default Drivers for Heidelberg Linoscan 1400 Scanner? VueScan?

** Please note X-post **

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.

Cheers

Dave R

You can download a trial version for free to find out.

I think it maybe a version Umax Powerlook III ??

so you could look and try these drivers and see if they work.

Think this costs 300 UKP - possibly a bit too much?

Its worth pointing out to you that in essence all XP is is a rebadged &
repackaged version of NT so NT drivers will almost certainly work for your
scanner.
Its worth saying because it seems so few people actually realise thats what
XP really is.

Plus you are more likely to find NT drivers for free.

Rob,

thanks - from searching through various sites I think that the Umax matches
another (higher) Linoscan model number
However I can't now find the post!
No harm in giving it a try :-)

Cheers

site you can give them a try and see which works.

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