    twain acquire

    pkeelty
      I'm stumped and would appreciate any assistance.

      I have a cheap HP 1510 AIO scanner that, despite several HP driver/software installs and two full Fireworks CS3 re-installs, does not show up in the twain acquire box when atempting to scan into FW. Nor does it show up in the twain select box. In fact, both boxes show no twain sources at all.

      Does anyone know how to fis this? The scanner works just fine using its own software, but it is a real drag to have to save scanned images to disk and then open them in FW. I have used fireworks since version 2 and have never run into anything like this.

      Thanks in advance, Peter Keelty

          Do you have any other software besides the HP software that uses a
          scanner? It would be helpful to find out if it doesn't show up in FW only.

          If you go to Control Panel > Scanners and Cameras, does it show up there?

          (i'm assuming you are using windoz...)
