  1. Hi all,

    Having nearly thrown out the above scanner because the software would not load in XP. I scoured the web for an answer, in vain. I saw that many have had the same problem. Now that I have found the cure m( for me) i though it my duty to share the method of my success. Those who have had the same problem will know what I am going on about.

    Assuming the scanner is hooked up to your machine and you have put downloaded drivers on to a CD. You can use the drivers straight from your download folder if you wish.

    1. Get latest drivers form Web site (acardv141.zip, mirafotov2012_bqe.zip)
    2. Start/control panel/system/hardware/device manager/SCSI and Raid controllers. Click to ACARD AEC-6710D SCSI controller (Win2000XP)
    3. Right click to ""update driver"
    4. On Mira disk unzip acardv141.zip then click Acard.exe.
    5. Close Device manager.
    6. In "control panel add new software" Click on to Mira disk file "mirafoto2012_bqe.zip."
    7. Click on "Setup.exe. Then close.
    8. Shut down computer.
    9. Boot Scanner.
    10 Boot computer.

    Load slides press scan button. Choose your preferred Photo editor.

    Well, it worked for me. I don't think I have missed anything.
    Good luck.
