Polaroid SprintScan 120 now (Snow)Leopard & Vista compatible

October 10th, 2009 · 6 Comments · HowTo, News, OSX, Scanner, SilverFast

Good news for every Polaroid SprintScan 120 owner. LaserSoft Imaging’s development department has figured out how to run the scanner with SilverFast on actual Macintosh operating systems 10.5 and 10.6 and on Windows Vista.

Additionally the annoying color channel bending, which occurs especially during high resolution scanning, is eliminated and the awarded and favored SilverFast feature Multi-Exposure* is now available for the scanner as well.

Therefore it’s necessary to exchange an EPROM (a small memory chip) to update the firmware. For a technically experienced user this exchange is possible at home following our detailed instruction manual. IMPORTANT, since the device has to be screwed apart! We also offer the EPROM exchange service for you, if you send your scanner in.

* The SprintScan 120 can apply Multi-Exposure using resolution up to 2000 dpi.

    I have a Sprintscan 120 and am running Snow Leopard. Am interested in using your software and also your service to exchange the EPROM chip. Can’t find any details on your website about this service. Can you also clean the scanner? Please advise. Thank you.

    I have a Sprintscan 120 and I would like to upgrade it so I can use it with Silverfast on my Windows 7 pc, so I need to get one of these eeproms that change it into a Microtek 120tf. I am confident I can change the eeprom myself but do you still have them available ? and how much will one cost ? and will I need to buy the software at the same time ? Thanks in advance, John.

    Dear Mr. Notter,
    we are sorry, but meanwhile all eeproms for the SprintScan 120 have been sold. Unfortunately, there isn’t even a single unit left.

    Best Regards.
