i've had my visioneer scanner for a while now, i havent used it for a few months...
i load the paperport deluxe software that was given with it, and tried to scan a photo and the error message says....

"please VERIFY that you have unlocked the scanner hardware,
the lock is located on the bottom of your scanner, click OK after you have unlocked the scanner."

i would follow these instructions except there is no unlock/lock mechanism on the scanner, anywhere.
There are no buttons on it full-stop!
Can some-one help with this, how do i unlock the scanner?

Thanks,

Sarif

lesmydad,
I contacted Visioneer and asked them about the lock mechanism on your scanner. Here is what I found:

"The 4800 scanners do not have a physical lock that can be unlocked. The 4800 USB scanners may report a generic "check the lock" message whenever a scan is attempted and the unit is unable to calibrate properly." They suggest updating the driver which you can download from here:
