scanner and camera Wizard for noninstalled scanner

Q: scanner and camera Wizard for noninstalled scanner

According to Windows XP For Dummies from year 2002, any scanner can be used with Windows XP because of some basic WIA which permits scanners to be used without being installed. Since I have an older scanner which worked well on another Windows XP computer on which the scanner was installed, I figured I could follow the instructions in that Dummies book to use the same scanner in Windows XP on a different computer. So I began to try.Instructions began like this:To use the Scanner and Cameria Wizard,1. Click Start --> Control Panel2. Click Printers and Other Hardware, click Scanners and Cameras...BUT THERE WAS NO CORRESPONDING WINDOW PRESENT. THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SCANNERS AND CAMERAS WINDOW, BUT NONE THERE.I could then not follow any further instructions.I also found in Control Panel, an item called Scanners And Cameras, so I opened this to see if there were selections which I could follow according to the Dummies book. There was only an "install hardware" item inside. Also, somewhere along the attempted process, Windows invited me to look for drivers to install, but I was not sure if that fit my purposes or not. Would that path bring in the WIA software which Windows XP is expected to already have?What am I missing here? Windows XP is supposed to have some WIA software allowing basic features of any scanner to be used, but I could not find the instructions path to make use of the scanner. The scanner was also plugged in while I tried the process. I do not really want to install the scanner because I already installed a combination all-in-one scanner + printer on the XP machine.

Please click on Control Panel > Scanners and Cameras > on the Left side (as shown) there are Sub Headings for you to click on - Do you know if the scanner came with an install CD - That may have drivers listed on the CD - If not then visit the site of the scanner maker -If you can list the make and model for us, we may be able to link the driver site for you -Thank You -

Got a new Canon camera which uses its own program to download pictures to the computer (Gateway MX6930) running XP (sp3) and have had no problems. Tried to download some pics from my older Sony camera which used to bring up the Camera Wizard allowing me to title each shot with a name and number but that no longer happens. I plug in the Sony (USB cable) and nothing. It shows up on Explore and right clicking does not get me to the Scanner and Wizzard start-up screen that would allow me to select the photos I want and to name them as they are put on the hard drive. When I search through Scanners & Cameras and click on "Add an imaging device" the "Scanner & Camera Installation Wizzard" starts but Sony is not listed so I cannot select it. I can click on "Have Disk" but the CD that came with the Sony does not have the file it needs. The only thing on the CD (besides photo programs) is a USB driver which I did download but didn't help...... HOWEVER I have had MS Word refuse to start a week or so ago and I tried reinstalling but didn't work, I found an MS site that showed me how to repair the Word registry and that worked OK. This makes me suspect - maybe something has happened to the registry. I can't go there so I decided to ask for your help.... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...

I by accident enabled this when connecting my Sony Cybershot and now can't disable it. Everytime I plug in the camera, it appears. I want my camera to appear as a Removable drive like it use to so that i can drag and drop and delete pictures as I'd like. I've read on many sites that I should be able to right click on my camera->properities and go to an autoplay tab, but it doesn't exist for me. I'm running WinXP. Under my cameras properties, there is an event tab that I can only select one event, "Camera connected" and I've chosen take no action. I've tried deleting and uninstalling this camera through Device manager but everytime I plug it in, it still shows up as the Sony camera and I can't drag and drop pix.

Anyone know how to get around this?

OS : windows XP Pro sp3​Problem : We have a machine that has lost Scanner and Camera wizard from autoplay a few days ago after we moved this PC from a local Workgroup to a Domain. After moving it to the domain with the new user, we copied the Windows profile from the old local user to to the new domain user. We currently do not have any group policies configured to disable auto play. When I log in with the username into the old local account the Wizard pops up fine. It is something related to the user/profile change. When we plug the camera into the computer autoplay works and recognises that the camera has pictures but there are no options to transfer pictures in the pop up box. i have tried a a few reg edits , we do not have Real Player, No luck with Windows autoplay repair wizard either.

We use Windows scanner and camera wizard to transfer pictures from a USB connected camera to the computer. Our users have been trained on it, so we don't want to switch software.

Also if i go the properties and click on autoplay and select -pictures there are no options. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy, folks. I've been trying for the better part of an hour now to get my Wizard to copy some files from my camera, but I'm having some trouble.

The issue here, as I've been able to discern by looking around the web, is that the videos I'm trying to copy out are too large- namely, over the 1.5 gig threshold that seems to hold the wizard back.

The only drivers I could find that would apparently solve the issue were for SP2, which I'm using SP3 (XP, by the way.) I also can't seem to find any other programs for getting the pictures off my camera. So! Is there anything I can do?

How can I get my Windows XP to recognize my camera?

I installed my new Samsung L200 camera and, at first, when I connected it to my computer the box that asks what I want to do appeared. I'd click "upload pics using the Scanner/Camera wizard" and things worked fine. Then one day that choice box didn't appear and when I went directly to the S/C didn't recognize my camera -it said to add it.

I tried to "add" the camera to the wizard but a pre-ordained, un-editable, list appeared and no Samsung cameras were among the choices.

I re-installed the software on the camera's change.

Mind you, I have the Samsung uploader, but it only uploads, it will not delete pictures from camera upon completion as the scanner/camera wizard did; a problem when uploading dozens of pictures (makes deletion in camera a manual operation).

I'd rather use the wizard.

Any ideas/help?

A:Solved: How do I add Samsung L200 dig/cam to Scanner Camera Wizard?

With the camera hooked to the computer and ready to download it should show as a drive in My Computer or Windows Explorer. Right click on the drive and select Properties > Autorun > Pictures. Check “Select an action to perform”. If you select the Wizard it will probably open when you connect the camera.

Was the camera hooked up and ready to download pictures when you went to the wizard to add the camera? It probably won’t show if it isn’t hooked up.

Edit: The camera often shows as a "removable drive".

hello all,

i'm new to the forum and thanks for taking the time to read this. i checked back through several forums and did not see this addressed so i'm hoping someone can help.

i've got very new dell laptop running windows XP home. two days ago the microsoft scanner and camera wizard flat out stopped working. havent a clue why. i didnt change any settings on my camera, the laptop or anything else. i did what i always do... snapped some pix, plugged in via usb and waited for the camera wizard to pull my images down.

all it does now is give me the dialog box saying "Reading device for information" and there it stays, frozen. i have to use the task manager to get it to stop and even then, once i unplug the camea (Nikon Coolpix 2100) even the camera won't shut off. i have to take out the batteries to shut the camera down.

i know it's not the camera because i have the exact same setup at work (only i run xp professional at work) and i have no problems at all transferring pix from my camera.

i tried installing the nikon software that came with the camera to see if i could use that instead of the wizard but that won't autostart either and i prefer the wizard any way.

any thoughts???????????

If scan stops and indicates that file is needed from CD...insert CD and hit Retry button on alert message.

b. Run the chkdsk /r command afterwards. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot.

The command will execute before booting into XP.

If you are using Windows XP, you should not need any drivers. After connecting the camera, go to Windows Explorer or My Computer and look for a 'Removable Drive". Double-click on the camera’s disk drive icon, then the “DCIM” folder, and then the

I recently have this problem with Camera wizard in Win XP, the wizard sorts when I import from my camera and gives the names to pictures first and then to videos. What ends up happening is that the pics and videos are not sorted by time they were taken but videos always at the end.

I think I had something else some time ago but was trying to search for other software and couldnt find anything that would be changing names of the pics as I want to and still wouldnt do this reordering. I also tried to find setttings for Camera wizard but it doesnt seem there is any.

I'm using the Scanner and Camera Wizard built into WinXP and I'm finding it quite convenient. However, something has happened that make it less conveniant, and I hope this could be fixed somehow... Maybe a registry-key that has been messed up?

When I come to the "Picture name and destination" step I used to just type a name for the group of photos (normally a date), and then the path to the place to save the photos would automatically change and give me a sub-folder with the name of my photo-group.

(Image below)

As you see in the attached screen-dump the group name, and the folder name is the same.

However, a while back (not sure when and in correlation with what), the automatic change of folder name stopped working. So now if I type a date in the top text field I anyway have to manually browse and create a folder so get a folder with the same name... This is quite annoying when it used to be so simple...

I have a new Dell 8400, see below for system configuration. When I use the Windows Picture Acquisition Wizard to get a picture from my Visioneer 9020 USB scanner the wizard freezes. I can't cancel the application, the Windows Picture Acquisition Wizard. I have to end it through the Task Manager and when I try to use the Windows Picture Acquisition Wizard again, I get a message saying it's in use. The only way to stop that message is to reboot the machine.

Dr. Watson reports the following:


UI LCID=1033
TitleName=Windows Picture Acquisition Wizard
DigPidRegPath=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId
ErrorText=The program is not responding.

This new Dell 8400 replaced a Dell 8200. The Windows Picture Acquisition Wizard has worked and continues to work properly on the 8200.

I have tried the following:

Uninstalled and reinstalled both the scanner and the scanner drivers.

Downloaded new scanner drivers, uninstalled the old drivers and installed the new drivers. Uninstalled the

scanner and new scanner drivers and reinstalled both. The older scanner drivers work on the 8200.

Hi. I'm at my wits end on this one. i've had the same scanner/printer (HP) and the same camera (kodak easy share) for at long time without this problem. I went camping over the weekend. last week everything worked fine. but when i got home and put the camera on the dock and hit the little button... nothing happened. i unplugged it, rebooted, and tried again... still nothing. now i've noticed the printer/scanner doesnt seem to work either. both have power. both seem ok as far as everything else, but the computer doesnt recognize them. i'm running windows xp and a few weeks ago i switched my browser to google chrome (not sure if that matters). i went into device manager and tried to update drivers... but there is nothing there for cameras and scanners. in the control panel, the cameras and scanners folder is empty. the wizard doesnt list very many and my models are not on there. if anyone knows any kind of fix for this, please help and thanks in advance!

Sorry I guess this is called cross posting.
I put the original message in a different forum. Didn't look closely at them.
Sorry about that.

I have a windows 2000 pro sp 4 machine.
I fubared the ability to use my scanner and camera.
When I try to use them I get errors about the image admin control not being found.
I didn't see imaging as a windows component in the control panel or able to reinstall it from the CD.
A google search brings up a zillion things for different stuff but not this.

Any help greatly appreciated. And I apologzie for posting in two forums. Will pay more attention next time.

Hi -

I have a Canon 8400F scanner and a Canon EOS Rebel XT...both working fine, until last week. Now, they undulate between not being recognized by my machine (Windows XP) at all or being recognized but not being able to communicate. I scan out of Photoshop and my camera usually downloads automatically when I plug the USB into a port.

Since they both fizzled at the same time I am wondering if this is device specific or if something else is going on. Since the Windows Control Panel lists "Scanners and Cameras" as one piece, is there some sort of Windows driver that could be the culprit?

I have downloaded the most recent drivers for the camera and scanner, and have also uninstalled and reinstalled the software from the original CD. But, no luck.

Any help? Thanks.

In the past I have had no problem downloading images from my Canon PowerShot S30 camera or using my SnapScan e52 scanner with my Windows Me PC. Now I only occasionally succeed. Checking properties says functioning all right, but error messages. if they appear at all, says no communication. Can it be an error in the registry or the SMBIOS? How do I fix the problem?

A:camera/scanner communication problem

I would first uninstall the driver software for the scanner and any camera software you installed. Then reinstall them.

If that doesn’t work one of your twain files might be corrupted. Uninstall again. Do a search for twain and delete any twain files and folders you find in the Windows folder. Then reinstall.

These are more specific instructions: I think Scan Gear is the twain driver for your scanner. I have no idea what came with your camera that might have installed twain files and it might not be necessary to uninstall the camera drivers. When you install Scan Gear it will not replace the twain files unless they aren’t there at all. If they are missing an install of Scan Gear will replace them.

The Otek scanner is a film scanner as far as I know. You put traditional, exposed camera film into it to scan the individual frames to digitize them. It's your reference to "cannot find camera" that puzzles me. What does a camera have to do with it?

I'm tring to help a friend with this problem, running Windows 2000, its getting a Microtek scanmaker 3630 scanner and a HP 320 digital camera to work on the same computer, both worked with Windows 98 but when upgraded to 2000 and each was loaded neither worked. We tried to install each alone and they worked but with both installed there was a conflict with drivers and they both have the same IRQ 11. The drivers are the same for both: twain drivers. Plug and play does the same thing both are on the same IRO 11, both drivers are USB, you can't have both drivers installed at the same time.

I uninstalled both of them and tried putting them in seperately...But when I add one piece of hardware it knocks the other one out and I've tried it both ways...
I can use one at a time. which ever one I'm using I have to reinstall the drivers before I can use the other. Both items are listed in the device manager but one always has a ! in a yellow triangle over one of them... So I put the driver in for that and it takes out the other peice of hardware so when I want to use that I have to reinstall the drivers for that and back and forth if I want to use either one.
Any help would be very much welcomed..

Currently I use Microsoft Security essentials as my "active monitoring" - What i'm looking for is any virus scanners that you find work well? (I only like "free" scanners.)

Consider I'm not seeking an active "monitor" that runs as a windows process. What I'm looking for is a "file scanner" that scans designated folders/drives.

I am looking to expand my assemblage of file scanners. In my opinion, the more, the better. (Sometimes I like to scan my drives with 3+ virus scanners. I'd like even more.)

I have bought an Epson Perfection 1200S scanner, second hand. I hoped to plug it into the USB of my PC but only after buying it did I see that the 1200U model is for USB and the handbook for this 1200S model says that unless my PC has an SCSI board, I need to install one. The scanner came with an interface board but I am not confident about opening my PC to install it.

The scanner also came with a Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B, which is not part of the Epson package but I guess is an extra that the seller threw in. It has a USB prong on one end that could go into my PC, and the other end would fit the cable that attaches to the scanner.

Can I install the scanner without using the SCSI board?

A:Solved: Can my SCSI scanner run as a USB scanner?

From the looks of it the Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B is a usb to scsi converter so you should be able to plug it into the USB port and have it work. Seems like it should be Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B to SCSI cable to scanner.

While Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B did not give me too many things to look up... maybe you can provide a picture of this unit to verify....

Windows 8, of course; Brother MFC-7460DN Laser Printer. Paperport 14. Nothing I do will allow me to scan from that printer in Windows 8! However, I can print just fine.

Windows 7 machine, Brother MFC-7460DN Laser Printer. Paperport 14. Everything works just fine and dandy. I double checked just a little while ago, and scanning went off without a hitch.

The only difference between Paperport on the Win 7 machine and the Win 8 machine is that I bought Paperport 14 for the Win 8 machine and while waiting for it to arrive, I downloaded and installed the trial version.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Paperport and the printer multiple times, in the Brother Utilities I clicked on and installed the Scanner Utility and still no joy!

Here's a snip of the Installation Diagnostics. The Scanner (Driver) Port looks hinky to me, but what do I know?

And, yes, I could use my Brother MFC-J825 for scanning, but that would be a pain because of the printer's location. Or, I could run into another room and use the J5910, but that would be even more inconvenient. 'Sides, I hate to have something that just won't work in Windows 8.

Bottom line is that it does seem to be a Windows 8 issue, because when I check, Windows says it's all good. And it ain't!

I would very much appreciate any help I can get with this, since I'm flummoxed so far. Thanks in advance.

Please do not take offense to any of my suggestions if they sound too basic:

So, I assume you have already downloaded and tried the latest drivers from Brother?

Can I also assume you are using it via a direct USB connection and it is not set up as part of a network and it is not wireless?

If so, can I assume you have applied the latest firmware update (9/6/2013)?

(Edit - Subject should read 'Microsoft Camera Wizard does not work anymore with Canon digital camera')

I have a Canon SD 700 IS digital camera bought about 15 months ago. Until recently, I could connect it to the USB port (same one each time and that port is not used for anything else) of my Windows XP PC (1 year old, bought new) and the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard would appear allowing me to use that software to transfer my digital pictures to my PC. Now, that does not work. I tried reinstalling the Canon EOS utility that came on a CD with my camera - no success in getting pictures transferred with that. The only way I can get the pictures to transfer, is to open Windows Explorer, the camera shows up under My Computer, but if I right click on Get pictures highlighting the camera listing, after multiple trys and 30 minutes, I get the few dozen pictures to transfer.

Anyone know what to try? I am suspecting it has to do with a recent overhall of my PC anti-spyware and security software (details below) as was using Lavasoft and Spybot before and found them becoming less effective. My computer is anti-malware free as far as I know from anti-spyware scans with multiple products (at least twice weekly) and real-time protection and anti-virus scans a little less frequently which Zone Alarm has never from day one found any viruses.

The computer is recognizing the camera in the USB port (it is enabled) and camera powered on and has no issues when taking pictures.... Read more

I have a Brother all in on MFC-J615W and it has been BEAUTIFUL for me. One of the main things I've been doing with it is scanning old pictures for genealogy purposes. I LOVE the fact that I can use the option FROM the scanner that allows you to scan INTO a graphics/photo program all wirelessly (on the scanner, I select SCAN and then "into a graphics program"). It has always shown the "connecting" message in the printer display and then it proceeds to open the scan in Paint (as default). No problems. LOVE IT.

Tonight, I just can't get it to go. It acts like it is trying to connect, but then just goes back out to it's default display (the time) and I have no scan.

HOWEVER....if I were to open up the photo software and IMPORT from the scanner, I have no issues.....and yes, this is wireless, as well.

SO..because I can do one wirelessly and not the other, I wouldn't think it's the network...or am I wrong? It's just bizarre that it would connect one way and not the other. Hmmmmm......

It just takes longer to import than to just scan into a graphics program, I think, so I like to scan INTO the software from the scanner..

Thanks in advance for any insight!

I am trying to install the software for a Polaroid i733 digital camera. I ran the CD. The camera wizard does not list my camera. I plugged in the camera to download photos, but, nothing happens. Shouldn't it pick up the camera automatically?
Also, the only place I can find the camera is an the Add/Remove programs list. It is not in the device manager. Any suggestions?

ok..i'll try to explain this as well as possible. I have a Kodak dx7630 cam. I was using the Koday easyshare program, but decided to get rid of it, so I uninstalled it. That left me with plugging the camera in and/or putting it on the dock and when I do this, my computer recognizes the camera, but the window that used to pop up (it was a menu with all of my photo processing programs, and allowed me to choose which one to use), no longer pops up. After doing extensive reading on the net, I think I somehow have lost a few keys in my registry.
I can still open a photo managing program and click on the "import" tab, and that works, but I want that "menu" to pop up again. I'm running windows xp home edition (with all the service pack updates). intel pentium 4, 3.0 gig , 512 ram. The reason I think there are reg keys missing is from doing some reading on another post, and I ran regedit, and saw that those keys were indeed gone. But I'm just not saavy enuf to reintroduce them.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I hope someone can help me with this problem. I went to down load some pics from my camera (fuji 2600 ) but the wizard wont come up after the camera has been recognized. I went in to my computer and the computer recognizes it but still no wizard to help me get them onto the hard drive. In my desperation i thought a system restore in windows XP might do the trick. I went back to the last date it was working and ran it. The restore wizard told me that there have been no changes made to the computer so it wont restore to the date i picked. Then i went back to a point in time which was months ago, knowing i have made changes to the computer. it still says no changes have been made and wont let me do it. I'm kinda stuck in knowing where to go next.any hints and tips would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried everything I have seen on Microsoft Web Site. I turn on my Camera, the wizard opens, I click use "Scanner and Camera Wizard to copy pictures" then the box disappears. I tried Autofix and that did not work. The computer does see my camera in Drive K (have plugged in USB cord). I would like to get this working again. It worked fine one day and then a week later nothing. I do not have Real Player installed and can't think of anything I changed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a rework of an message posted a couple of months ago which was unanswered so I thought it okay to repost.
In Windows XP, the Wizard no longer pops up to ask me what I want to do when a camera or other device, such as a flash drive containing photos, is connected.
This follows an installation and removal of a program called Finepix. I reinstalled the program and the Finepix program pops up upon connection, but this is not a program I wish to use and it does not help with other devices. Finepix, however, may not be the problem -- I may have simply made a mistake somewhere.
After removing Finepix again, I can still view the contents of my camera, but only when I use My Computer to navigate to that drive. This is not helpful because I want to re-enable the Windows interface (Wizard) that I had previously, so that it pops up automatically when the camera is connected.
I have changed the properties of the drive, eg E:\ Finepix, Properties etc, but the option, “Copy these files...” is not available and if I choose “Open Folder...” and a camera is subsequently attached, there is still no Wizard.​Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.

The Windows scanner and camera wizard won't transfer a quicktime movie from my Panasonic digital camera. Reads "not enough file size" or "unspecified error" I tried Window's Movie Maker without much success either. I know the movie is OK because I can play it on my camera. Any help is appreciated.

A:Camera Wizard won't transfer movie

That's because the WinXP Camera Wizard is ONLY for pictures, not movies.

You need 3rd party software for that. Didn't your camera come with it's own software (Kodak does)?

I have XP and a Sony digital camera. When I connected the camera to the computer with the USB cord a download Wizard talked me through the download process. Somewhere along the line I uninstalled Sony Imagestation (thinking I didn't need it, but I have it back now) and I think it was then that I lost the "Wizard". I now have to go to My Computer, and click onto Sony Memory STick etc and move files from there. I liked my "Wizard" so much more - how do I get him back?

The auto detect with the camera wizard in xp that allows you to extract pictures from a camera or memory card does not pop up.

It is supposed to pop up and ask me if I wanna open the folder containing the pics or do nothing or to open the camera wizard. This auto detect feature does not work anymore. The auto detect feature for music cd's still works fine.

Is there a way to bring up the camera wizard manually? or how do I fix this?

Hello all, I have been using the XP camera import for quite a while. All of a sudden it quit working. When I connect the camera to the USB cable, a little box comes up and asks what I want to do. I select copy from the camera to my hard drive and hit ok. The box disappears and nothing else happens.

Anyone have any ideas? I recently ran a registry cleaner program from MS and I think that is what killed it.
