Installing USB TWAIN/WIA Driver (Windows only)

Solution

How do I install the USB TWAIN/WIA Driver (Windows only)?

Notes:

  • USB TWAIN Driver is the driver software for Windows 98 and Windows 2000 that is required to load still images/movies into TWAIN-compliant programs, such as ArcSoft PhotoImpression and ArcSoft VideoImpression. Since it is not a stand-alone program, you must always start it from TWAIN compliant programs.

  • USB WIA Driver can only be used with the USB interface in Windows Me/Windows XP. When you connect the camcorder to the computer with a USB cable, the Windows Scanners and Cameras Wizard opens automatically to assist with downloading. This driver also allows you to use Windows Explorer to display thumbnails of the camcorder's still images/movies on the computer and download still images/movies with standard file copying procedures.

  • If the "Digital signature not found" message appears, click the 'Yes' button.

Select your operating system:

Windows 98

1. Insert a memory card containing still images/movies into the camcorder.

2. Connect the Power Adapter to the camcorder.

3. Turn the POWER switch to PLAY(VCR) and move the TAPE/CARD switch to CARD.

4. Connect the camcorder to the computer using the supplied USB cable.

  • After a few moments, a message such as "New Hardware Found" appears and the TWAIN driver will be installed automatically.

  • If you are prompted to restart the computer, restart the computer.

5. The TWAIN driver is now installed.

2. Connect the camcorder to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
