    Saphir Ultra 2

    Hi:

    I have been searching with google for a driver for the Heidelberg Saphir Ultra 2 scanner without success.

    Does anybody have any idea where I might find one?

    TIA,
    Regards,

    Tony

    Hi Leif,

    Yes - and I've tried heidelberg-cps.com, which is the URL given in the 'HotLine' info card. However, since their 'Phone Hotline' gives the response - 'This number does not take incoming calls' - I was wondering if anyone had a favourite Drivers Site.

    I have tried DriverGuide.com, but no luck there.

    ( Note to Hans: I deliberately haven't bothered to make those links clickable!)

    What OS are you running as MOST drivers are also OS dependent?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Hi Dave:

    I'm running Windows XP Professional. My wife, who would also like to get the scanner working on her new Mac, is running OSX (Tiger)

    Not much on the net about this scanner, it appears (my thoughts) that it is third party "Branded" equipment.

    Some brands are build by another OEM and just adds the trade marks, but neither will support the product.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    It appears that this is from Linotype and is very old. See Linotype Linotype Saphir Ultra 2 Driver Summary for a download link. You are supposed to be able to download for free by watching a series of ads (Ihave no idea how many).

    Thanks, Joe.

    That link took me to the DriverGuide site that I had tried before, but also took me to the page with the correct (I hope) driver on it.

    I have D/Loaded and installed it, but my laptop still does not recognise the scanner.
