[filmscanners] Re: Re:Polaroid sprintscan 4000 problems

Windows 98 generally is regarded as being unable to cope with more than
512mb of ram without modification. I find the best way is to use a little
program called Cacheman. It is available free at http://www.outertech.com
and will help to control your ram usage as well as overcoming the ram
limitation problem. The motherboard may well be a limiting factor as well
but try Cacheman first.


Windows 98 can certainly address more than 128MB RAM, though I don't know
what its limits actually are. Some motherboards of that vintage may not have
been able to effectively use more than 128MB, perhaps?

I did have an early version of Silverfast for a flatbed on the system.

It was ussually the second (large) scan, but not always. It could also go on
the third or fourth very small scan, or just with 10 or 15 mins playing with
colour adjustment, or curves, or tone, or sharpness etc.

The second PC I tried it on did not have Silverfast, and Insight 5.5 would
start ok on this, but I suffered the same instability problems.

Windows 2000 Professional has been mentioned, and I (vaguely) remember a
conversation with someone about Windows 98 not being able to address more
than 128Mb RAM. I do not know if this is correct, but I am going to try it.
