Any ideas here - I have 2 scanners connected via a scsi card to my pc (xp\npro) - the\nfirst in the chain is a film scanner - polaroid 120 and that works ok. The\nsecond scanner is an old flatbed Microtek Scanmaker III annd that has been\nworking fine until very recently. It previews the images ok but suddenly\nfreezes\nand crashes PS after starting the scan. And the 'ready light' goes out.\nI've tried uninstalling and reinstalling all drivers and scan software and\nalso the 'repair' option re-installion of PS (cs2).\nI access these scanners from the PS>file>import menu. Is the old grey mare\njust dying and I should toss it out, or is there a software problem that can\nbe fixed?\n\nUnfortunately, the Scanwizard app for the Scanmaker flatbed scanner isnt\nstandalone, so i cant try it from outside of Photoshop.I've also tried to\nonly have one scanner at a time connected.\nI did try unchaining the polaroid film scanner (usually 1st in the scsi\nchain) and connecting only the troublesome Microtek flatbed with a short\nscsi cable and terminator. No luck, same problem. There is a Scantest\nutility that comes with the scanner which tests if the scanner is ok - it\ntested ok, strangely enough.\nI also suspected memory allocation problems as when the problem first\nocurred, we were able to scan some handwritten pages as line art, but when\nwe wanted to scan a col print, it failed. How oes one fix memory addressing\nproblems ?\n\nany ideas ?
