I have been trying to scan photos using Arcsoft photostudio 5.5. It could be that the answer to my problem lies outside the actual software and has something to do with my settings. I use vista Business.

After I have scanned a couple of postcard sized photos I get the following message:

"There is not enough free disk space to complete the scan. Scanner driver will be closed. Code: 31,0,0"

I then run CCleaner, shut all other programs and even reboot, but the problem always reappears. I neve had this trouble with my earlier version of Photo Studio.

Have you tried changing your scan settings? Could be that you're scanning at a much higher resolution than you actually need.

I have tried everything with my scan settings. I usually scan at 300 dpi however the scanned image, which I would expect to be roughly 500x300 turns out to be more like 1600x1200 and the resolution is not 300 but rather 72. I can fix this later on in Elements 5.5 however I cannot seem to avoid getting that "not enough free space" message and havong the software close itself down.

I think it's the scanning process which is the problem, not the virtual memory. Everything else works ine.

It certainly sounds like a scanner issue, but you're not going to be able to improve the resolution in your graphics editor. I'd fiddle some more with the settings if I were you, and then maybe try reinstalling the software. Of course, someone who knows a lot more than I do might come by and make a much better suggestion.

Good luck!
