LinoType 2200 Not Detected

Postby AA-UTA » Mon Aug 21, 2006 7:20 pm


My LinoType 2200 is not being seen by the computer in Apple System Profiler (ASP). Card is an AEC6712TUM, computer is a PowerMacG3.

I've installed the latest driver for card, latest version of Silverfast AI, latest MacOS upgrade as of 21 Aug 2006.

Have tried replacing cable, moving card to a different slot, reseating all cable connections, changing SCSI ID, reinstalling OS, and removing/reinstalling Silverfast.

Nothing worked.

Any suggestions?

if the operating system doesn't find it, there is little to no chance SilverFast will be able to detect it.

You can check if it is an OSX 10.3/10.4 problem, by installing e.g. OSX 10.2.8 or 9.2.2 on a separate partition. If you experience the same problems, it is probably a hardware issue.

Judging from our testing center experiences, I would expect the Acard 6712 to work well in your system's setup.
There are <a href=">"hints in our FAQ</a> that might help you out.

Thanks for your reply.

The scanner is now connected to a PC and is working fine. This tells me that the problem is either with the Acard, OSX 10.4.7, or SilverFast.

However, as I said, the question is now moot, as I connected the unit to a PC and am not having problems.
