Windows 10: Photoshop CS5 doesn't name my scanners Solved

    Photoshop CS5 doesn't name my scanners


    I have four scanner options, two standalones and two multifunctions, on my Win 10 network. I have just installed Adobe Creative Suite 5 and have found that my scanners aren't listed automatically in Photoshop CS5, as seemed to happen in earlier versions. All I get under Import is a WIA option that points to the sole scanner attached my main PC, ignoring the other options elsewhere in the network

    Anyone know how to get all the network scanner names back into Photoshop?

    Most programs that have a choice to Acquire an image, a scanner can be chosen but most I've dealt with needed a TWAIN driver installed. I have only 2 All-in-One devices attached to my Router.

    I have checked and my other PCs have only the attached scanner named. So I was overoptimistic about expecting to see all network scanners listed on a single machine. However, the fact remains that one PC doesn't name the attached scanner, but the WIA Support option has been activated, unlike on the other PCs. So I am happy to make a couple of extra clicks in order to select a scanner.

    Thanks for your reply, Berton.
