A Summit Photofix slide/negative scanner which worked for several years has developed a glitch. When Photo Impression 6 is used to connect to the scanner the box in the program window giving all the scanners available has OVT scanner greyed out and cannot be connected.
If Adobe Elements 5 is used, the box shows all the scanners including OVT. Clicking OVT connects to the scanner but when an attempt is made to copy a slide, the computer crashes.
Have tried uninstalling & installing again but same result.
Assumed Summit developed a fault so bought a similar scanner from Veho. This produced the same results so fault appears to be in interface.
Restored back to date before scanner was installed this time but same result.
Using Windows XP Professional - no major changes made.
