Abaton DA Crashes
Posted on 1997-03-24
Mac: LC475 20meg Ram – ROM Version: $67C – ROM SubVersion: $26F1-13.1
My scanner DA (Abaton), which has been working just fine for years, started to freeze immediately after activating. Occasionally I get a type 10 bomb but usually it freezes with and without curser movement. The Abaton PhotoShop plug-in causes Photoshop to quit but does not crash the machine. The problem exists with:
–Abaton software reinstalled
–when booted from a different disk (different system version)
–when nothing connected to the SCSI port (it should tell me that it can't find the scanner but it just freezes)
I have run all kinds of troubleshooting programs and they all report that all is OK. (MacCheck, Maxima Snooper 2.0-1, Fix Purgeable WDEFs 1.0 (Peter Newton), TechTool v106, Norton Disk Doctor v3.1).
Have I eliminated all posibility of it being a software problem? Any other suggestions?
PS Everything else seems to be working fine.
