Windows 7: Installing Visioneer OneTouch 8100 Scanner

25 Jan 2015   #21

win-8.0 (64)

in opening really wanna' thank all of you for the input the following works for my 64-bit laptop. my environment is toshiba-satellite-p55 win-8.0 operating system 64-bit architecture.

fantail suggested installing visioneer's 9420 driver gafferx elaborated really well with the driver's selection xweaponx for his thorough elucidation and methodology.

if you have previous non-functional installations of visioneer, you might uninstall those first. afterward, download both of the drivers then unplug the scanner from your computer. reboot.

make sure the scanner is ready to "plug-n-play" by plugging the device into the wall-outlet. there should be little amber light on front-panel lit if not, make sure you have "unlocked" the scanner underneath the bed and that the i/o switch is switched on.

install 8100u.303110.EN.exe (run@admin / win-xp-sp3 comp). once 8100 has been installed, plug the scanner into your computer and turn it on. you will now notice "visioneer-8100-scanner" listed in the program-install interface. pull up device-manager, 8100 should appear in "other devices" the "properties" window probably will state the driver has not been installed. reboot.

now install 9420.64.4071123.EN.msi on top of the 8100 install you will now notice "one-touch-4.0" is listed in the program-install interface. pull up device-manager, and 9420 should appear in "imaging devices". as gafferx suggx while in device-manager, update-driver by going to "browse my computer " and then "let me pick ". reboot.

i've been using paint-shop-pro(7.0) as the interface with the 8100-scanner (instead of picasa). unfortunately, i've not had any luck using windows-paint nor windows-fax/scan as the interface. you might have better luck. within psp, import / twain / select-source (choose scanner) import / twain / acquire.

you might find it necessary to go to devices/printers via control-panel where you should see onetouch-8100 listed i've allowed windows to reconfigure the connections by clicking "troubleshoot" which seemed to help.

again thanks for everyone's help hopefully my interpretation, in turn, helps others out.

win 7 also XP


Thanks for the refresher course. It really helped me install on a Windows 7-64 computer I assembled last year. I kinda lost my touch.
Here is my summary of what I did:

  1. install picasa. I just seem to need it to do visioneer scanning.
  2. I then do all scans via picasa
  3. --
  4. download and install the first driver 8100u.303110.EN.exe found at Visioneer OneTouch 8100 Drivers and Manuals
  5. install it in XP3 compatibility mode and as administrator
  6. you get to xp3 compatibility mode by right clicking the icon of the above download (in its folder)>>>>
  7. properties>>
  8. >>and looking for xp3 compatibility mode. Check it off
  9. now reboot but I did it sloppy without doing so and it worked...this time...:)
  10. now now install 9420.64.4071123.EN.msi found at Visioneer OneTouch 9420 Drivers and Manuals on top of the 8100 install
  11. --
  12. now go to computer properties>> device manager>>> imaging
  13. you will see a yellow caution marker because you are only part way finished
  14. go to that imaging device
  15. go to driver update>>>
  16. look for "browse my computer for driver software"
  17. press this option and proceed to>>
  18. "let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer">> proceed
  19. you will see a list of scanner manufacturers
  20. scroll down to visioneer and left mouse click the word visioneer
  21. now select 9420 driver or it may be the only one listed
  22. install
  23. --
  24. now when you go to device manager you will find your new 9420 scanner properly installed :)
  25. so all is well
  26. --
  27. now for me I need to use picasa
  28. so with scanner plugged in
  29. start up picasa
  30. press import (Upper left corner)
  31. you will see two scanners listed
  32. the 8100
  33. and the 9420
  34. guess which number is the one you select_____
  35. answer: the 8100
  36. the visioneer scan software interface will appear
  37. the end

Windows 7 (My Idea)
I'm glad that this still works after five years.

I would still like to know exactly how this Picasa thing works. I'll look through that last post with the steps.

I don't use the visioneer anymore even though I still have it, it's still a good scanner. I have a newer HP scanner that detected automatically. But I also have a "neat" scanner and I also have another HP scanner that basically works by setting the paper on the inside as the thing is set upright. It kind of looks like another monitor. You just slide the paper in there and it scans. I want to use this one because it has an attachment for slides. it is a ScanJet 4670. But I picked up a little neat scanner that has three different scoops for three different sizes of paper envelopes and business cards. It scans it directly to PDF too and this one is much smaller than the other ones but I really need The flatbed scanners because I always have to scan oversized items. The visioneer was good for that especially when it was a 12 inch album cover, I had to get both sides and then fit all the scans together.

I am glad my instructions are still valid, because I might have to use the visioneer again and I know know that the instructions are still here. Thank you all.
