VueScan is the ultimate tool for all your film and slide scanning needs.
Apple keeps changing their Mac OS and Minolta will not update the driver for my scanner. VueScan keeps my Minolta scanner operating with each new Mac OS version that comes around. Boo for Minolta - Kudos for VueScan!— Greg Beale in Columbus, Ohio, USA
VueScan is compatible with the Minolta Scan Multi Pro on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
If VueScan isn't working with the Firewire cable, try a different Firewire port or a different Firewire cable.
This scanner has an infrared lamp for scanning film. VueScan's 'Filter | Infrared clean' option can be used to remove dust spots from film scans. This is similar to (and we think better than) the ICE and FARE algorithms.
It scans with both visible light and infrared light in a single pass.
Infrared cleaning works well with all types of color negative and color slide film, including Kodachrome. However, silver-based black/white film doesn't work with infrared cleaning because the silver particles look the same in visible light and infrared light.
If you're using Windows and you've installed a Minolta driver, VueScan's built-in drivers won't conflict with this. If you haven't installed a Windows driver for this scanner, VueScan will automatically install a driver.
You can use this scanner on Mac OS X and Linux without installing any other software.
