is that the model? Vision 35
I couldnt find anything on a vision so you might want to give the model number which should be found on a label either on bottom or on the back.

Agfa Vision 35 is a film scanner.
It is a discontinued scanner.
Something about this scanner here :

and here :

I have been to all those sites frache, and the software is to be purchased. This is not a problem if it my last resort. I did state I have checked out the AGFA site and it was a driver for win95/98 I was after.

The model number on the back is Vision 35, but it has ABC Code 3ERUF which may be some model type.

Yes it is a 35mm film scanner.

Any other places or suggestions. I have been to some of the other driver download sites, but they all so far point back to teh AGFA site!

Ok well good luck finding just drivers for that scanner! I looked alittle more into Fotolook and it is the scanning software that probably came with the scanner- It will (Should) provide support for the Vision35 scanner. You do not have to purchase Fotolook it is free software. Download the full file of fotolook (should be like 4Meg) you can get it at the following places:

(I got it from here:)
http://www.agfahome.com/cgi-bin/agfahome/fldownload.pl

or you can go here and find that plus many other files:
http://support.agfa.com/swPubDTP/swPubDTP4.html

after downloaded run the setup and then reboot- try to run one of the programs for example "Color Copy" and see if detects your scanner. If not then post back here and we will continue.

My answer was right.
Fotolook is free for Afga scanner owner.
( Dongle = Agfa scanner -> You have an Agfa scanner -> no problem )

Your scanner is supported by Fotolook.
Download (9Mo)and make a try ...

Yes it was free software and it did also have drivers that Win98 detected on re-starting. Only problem is the scanner is giving Synchronsiation failure now, so maybe it is faulty.

Thanks anyway.

I think it's a SCSI problem :

- Verify terminaison ( www.adaptec - many documents about scsi terminaisons)
- Verify SCSI parameters : speed : choose 5 or 10 Mb. Try asynchronous mode ... etc
With an Adaptec Scsi card, you can change SCSI parameters during PC boot ( crtl A or Q, before SCSI initialisation).  

- Make a try with a basic SCSI card (Adaptec 150X,1520 or 290X etc ... 40$ US)

Thanks I will try that as it has been fitted to a different system with a different SCSI card so that makes sense and it is an Adaptec AHA-1520B card. It has a terminator so I will check what else you have said and possibly use the driver disk not Win98 autodetect

Thanks Again
