Polaroid 4000 Sprintscan driver/software

Paul Purdom , Oct 29, 2009; 04:13 p.m.

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have the driver and/or the software that cames with the Polaroid 4000 Sprintscan.
I have a Windows XP box, Vista, and even Linux if someone brew one up.
Thanks in Advance...

Do you need the Polaroid software for some reason, or do you just want to run the scanner? If you just want to run the scanner, VueScan can do it.
I have a Sprintscan disc, but it is from 1995 or ??? It says it will run all sprintscan scanners, but it came out long before the 4000, so it's questionable as to whether it will work on the 4000.

See if this works. This link has download for both the 4000 and 4000plus. 4000 only had a SCSI interface.

You need the drivers to allow Vuescan to "see" the scanner. Vuescan alone doesn't work. The link pointed to is no good. It eventually resolves to an old Polaroid web page.

I just need the driver. Most of the driver update pages link to Polariod's dead site. The 1995 would be for the 35e and probably would not work with the 4000 and 120 versions. if you can email it I'd sure would try.
My most commonly used email is paul_purdom@yahoo.com

I was able to get the TWAIN Driver and PolaColor 5.1 (I believe) which works with the Polariod Sprintscan 4000. Through a lot of emails, any one need it, contact me at above post email address.
Thanks to Zahir and Timothy.

I have added the files to Dropbox, I'm not sure if I have to add access to each individual or if its just public. If you use them send me a line, so I know they are still of use.

If the link doesn't give you access email me at the above email address and I'll add you. As always, feel free to send me a link of work scanned that you post online.
