Maginon fs500 slide scanner not 'seen' by VueScan, Gimp or Photoshop Elements

Hi. I bought this pretty good slide scanner from Aldi-but the software that comes with it is basic to say the least. None of the above image manipulators can 'see' the scanner although they can all see my Epson Stylus flatbed scanner. VueScan website thinks unsupported scanners may need WIA files. Maginon support does not know of these. Any one got any ideas how to use the Maginon to import into any of the above suites of software? Windows 7 64 bit. Many thanks.

Not sure if this will help but take a look here enter link description here

Also have you tried using the Windows built-in Windows Fax & Scan from the Start Menu?

Hi Northumbria- thanks for the response. Tried the Windows Fax and Scanner- no go. Unless it is me, trying to install the WIA files is a pain involving a command prompt within Windows/System 32?
