Scanners and cameras doesnt appear

Recommended Posts

On w2k3 the digital camera/device installed doesnt appear on the control panel as it would on windows XP.

Any Ideas how to enable it?

Thanks

Probably because w2k3 is supposed to be used as a SERVER and not a WORKSTATION! :)

Yes I know its a server but it doesnt mean i cant connect a camera to it and try to view it from MY computer.

Anybody else got ideas?

i think its something they did to win2k3, i have the same thing, all the imaging hardware installs and works fine, but does not appear on the 'Scanners and Cameras' tab in control panel.

Go to Start -> Run -> and type in Services.msc and scroll down until you find the "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) ", double click on Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) and select startup type Automatic -> Apply -> Start -> OK.

Now install the drivers for your Camera, Webcam, or Scanner! :)

Just like vcant said the devices installs and runs fine it just doesnt appear in the my computer window, its actually something minor, i just want to know why it doesnt show up like in XP

It doesn't appears there because this is a Server operating system. It's like, you don't expect to get an MP3 Autoradio with 6-CD charger in a battle tank, or suspensions in a boat. That would be pointless.

thats true, but why they kept the 'Scanners and cameras' tab in the control panel then?

does that mean that there is a place to put the CD-changer in a tank, but it just doesn work properly?? :)

but the whole problem is that i cannot add anything to the tab, the hardware works fine, but doesnt show up..

anyway, i think the conversation is becoming quet pointless, and win2k3 user will just have to do without it... :):rolleyes:
