This file contains the following topics:

* Running Scankit Utility in either Windows version 3.0 or 3.1

* Editing the scanner device line


Before proceeding, it is important that you have completed the
following steps:

Step 1: Installed the scanner interface card in your computer.

Step 2: Connected the scanner to the interface card.

Step 3: Run the Install program of Scankit Utility.


If you have not yet done any of the 3 steps, please refer to the
scanner Installation Guide for more details.



RUNNING SCANKIT UTILITY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. Start Windows by typing "win."

2. Double-click the ScanKit Utility Icon(builtafter installation) to
runthe Scankit Utility or,

2.1 Usethe Program Manager's File RUN command,type:

"scanw"(if you're using Windows 3.0/3.1)

Also include the DOS pathname.
(Examples: C:\SCANW\scanw )

2.2 Click OK.


EDITING THE SCANNER DEVICE LINE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. INTRODUCTION
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For the computer to recognize that you have installed a scanner,
the CONFIG.SYS file should contain a device line that specifies
the scanner driver and the configuration (i.e., DMA, IRQ, and
I/O address settings) used by the scanner interface card.


TAKE NOTE THAT INSTALLING SCANKIT UTILITY WILL AUTOMATICALLY
UPDATE THE CONFIG.SYS FILE FOR THE SCANNER DEVICE LINE.


However, there are instances when you may need to manually
change the parameters in the scanner device line. Like, for
example, you have to change the IRQ setting to avoid a
hardware conflict.


To edit the CONFIG.SYS file, you will need a text editor.
If you have DOS 5.0, you could use EDIT.EXE. If you have DOS
version below 5.0, you could use EDLIN.COM. Under Windows, you
could also use the Windows Notepad. Please refer to your DOS
(or Windows) manual for steps on how to use these text editors.


Read carefully the following sections to obtain more information
on how to set the parameters in the scanner device line.



2. THE SCANNER DEVICE LINE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The scanner device line should include five (5) items. These are:

* Device driver

* DMA setting

* IRQ setting

* Scanner type setting

* I/O address setting


In the CONFIG.SYS file, the correct syntax for the scanner
device line is as follows:


DEVICE=[drive:\][path-directory\]driver-nameDn In An Sn


where:


[drive:\][path-directory\] is the drive and subdirectory
where the scanner driver is located

driver-name is the name of the scanner driver
(e.g., M1904.SYS / M1906.SYS )

Dn is the DMA setting of the interface card
(e.g., D3 for DMA3)

In is the IRQ setting of the interface card
(e.g., I5 for IRQ5)

An is the I/O address of the interface card
(e.g., A2AB for I/O address 2AB)

Sn is the scanner type
(e.g., S5 for GS-800 scanner)


3. SETTING THE SCANNER DEVICE LINE PARAMETERS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you edit the scanner device line, there are certain
precautions that you should take note of especially when
choosing the DMA, IRQ, and I/O address settings for the
scanner interface card.


Avoid hardware and software conflicts that can adversely
affect the performance of the scanner by selecting only the
available and unused DMA, IRQ, and I/O address settings. See
Appendix C of the Installation Guide for more information.


Use the following options for setting the scanner device line
parameters.




3.1 The Mustek scanner device driver [driver-name]

The Mustek scanner device driver is found in the Scankit
Utility subdirectory. For the scanner to work, it is
important that the scanner driver is loaded properly when
you boot your computer. In the CONFIG.SYS file, make sure
the driver in the scanner device line has the correct path.



Driver-Name: For all Mustek hand-held scanners:
------------ ----------------------------------
M1906.SYS CG-8000


M1904.SYS CG-6000
GS-800
GS-400
HT-800 TURBO
HT-105
Matador Models 4096, 256, 105




3.2 The DMA channel [Dn]

When you assign the DMA setting for the scanner interface card,
make sure it is not used by any other device connected to
your computer. The available DMA channels for the
interface card are:

D1 for DMA 1
D3 for DMA 3 (recommended setting)






3.3 The IRQ level [In]

When you assign the IRQ setting for the scanner interface card,
make sure it is not used by any other device connected to
your computer. The available IRQ levels for the interface
card are:

I3 for IRQ 3
I5 for IRQ 5 (recommended setting for XT bus)
I10 for IRQ 10 (recommended setting for AT bus)





3.4 The Scanner type [Sn]

S2 for HT-105 / Matador 105
S4 for CG-6000
S5 for GS-800
S6 for HT-800 TURBO
S7 for GS-400 / Matador 256
S8 for Matador 4096

S9 for CG-8000




3.5 The I/O Address [An]

The scanner interface card has eight (8) available I/O
addresses and is equipped with a switch for selecting the
address setting.


Inspect the interface card closely. Printed on the circuit board
are the 8 available addresses. As with the DMA and IRQ settings,
select an I/O address that is not used by any other device
connected to your computer.


Take note also that the A parameter in the scanner device
line should match the scanner interface card's I/O address setting.


The 8 available I/O addresses are:

* 22B * 32B
* 26B * 36B
* 2AB (recommended setting) * 3AB
* 2EB * 3EB



3.6 Examples of Scanner Device Lines

DEVICE=C:\SCANW\M1906.SYS D3 I5 S9 A2AB


In the example above, the scanner driver M1906.SYS is located
in subdirectory SCANW of drive C. The parameters used are
DMA 3, IRQ 5, and I/O address 2AB. The scanner model is the
CG-8000 color scanner.


DEVICE=C:\SCANW\M1904.SYS D3 I5 S4 A2AB

In the example above, the scanner driver M1904.SYS is located
in subdirectory SCANW of drive C. The parameters used are
DMA 3, IRQ 5, and I/O address 2AB. The scanner model is the
CG-6000 color scanner.




DEVICE=C:\SCANW\M1904.SYS D3 I5 S5 A3EB

In the example above, the scanner driver M1904.SYS is located
in subdirectory SCANW of drive C. The parameters used are
DMA 3, IRQ 5, and I/O address 3EB. The scanner model is the
GS-800 gray-scale scanner.




DEVICE=D:\SCANW\M1904.SYS D3 I10 S6 A26B

In the example above, the scanner driver M1904.SYS is located
in subdirectory SCANW of drive D. The parameters used are
DMA 3, IRQ 10, and I/O address 26B. The scanner model is the
HT-800 TURBO halftone scanner.




DEVICE=C:\SCANW\M1904.SYS D3 I5 S2 A3EB

In the example above, the scanner driver M1904.SYS is located
in subdirectory SCANW of drive C. The parameters used are
DMA 3, IRQ 5, and I/O address 3EB. The scanner model is either
the HT-105 or the Matador 105 halftone scanner.




AFTER YOU HAVE EDITED THE SCANNER DEVICE LINE IN THE

CONFIG.SYS FILE, REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER TO MAKE SURE THE

CONFIG.SYS FILE IS READ.




FOR PROBLEMS DUE TO HARDWARE AND/OR SOFTWARE CONFLICTS,

PLEASE SEE APPENDIX C OF THE SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE.
