Hi thanks for your reply but not up on this scanner at all we bought it for our photography business to scan our films. We have the unit as a standalone its not connected to any printer or any other system? The software that came with it is 355/375/550/570 system and driver disk plus 2 recovery cd and a floppy disk. So if you could advise or even walk me through setup I would happily pay you!

I'm getting not terribly far trying to do the same thing on a SP2500 ie make it stand-alone. Unfortunately in my case the Toshiba PC failed - probably motherboard and now I have a second failed Toshiba PC and am hoping that I can combine them and get one working! Unfortunately I think it may be that both have failed motherboards!

I have reinstalled the software from recovery cd and installed both drivers and system software as standalone onto computer system but it fails to initialise scanner unless I upload the information held on the floppy disk that came with the unit. The scanner and other image processing unit connect to the back of the main PC using firewire and USB I don't appear to have a lan connection coming from the scanner?

you did not need to reload the S/W and may need to re-load the C4/C5 S/W back on the Scanner for it to work. In the scanner, there is the ability to get into your networking as you can on your image controller. If not control+alt+delete and end running programs to allow you to check the networking. If you do not know networking, and as it is the weekend...grab the nearest geek kid and ask them to check in the networking that 1. that both the Scanner and image controller both belong to the Digilab group and that the IP address is set to dynamic. I sent you a PM also New look studio.

The SP2500 has to be run with an external PIC as far as I'm aware.

The SP3000 is the first scanner that can download the images directly to the computer controlling the scanner.  It does require some workarounds, from my understanding.  I just purchased an SP3000 and will have to go thru this exact same ordeal.

I believe PTS can do the coding and workaround for you, but it might cost an arm and a leg.  It might be cheaper just to buy an external PIC already setup with Fuji Software to run as a standalone.  I think they go for about $1500.

Let me know if you've come to any conclusions!  God knows I'll need the help in a couple weeks!

We went through all of this trouble working with all the different software versions. Nothing worked for us and we went to PTS to have them put on some custom software to make it a stand-alone unit. It's expensive, but it works. We have not had a single problem with it. I recommend doing that. www.ptscsg.com
