Kodak i40 Scanner Setup

This step-by-step guide is a quick reference on how to install and setup the Kodak i40 scanner to work with Volume.

Do NOT plug the USB lead from the scanner into the computer before installing the Kodak drivers from the CD provided with the scanner.

Follow the instructions provided with the scanner on how to install the drivers from the CD or Kodak’s web site.


When the drivers have been successfully installed then power on the scanner from the mains and switch it on from the rear of the scanner. If the scanner is showing an error on its display switch it off then on again until a 0 or 1 is displayed. 0 means that the scanner is not connected to the computer.


Plug the supplied USB lead into the scanner and the other end into the computer. After the initial Windows configuration a 1 will be displayed on the scanner’s display. If this is not the case refer back to the installation notes that came with the scanner.


Once the scanner is successfully installed click on the Windows Start button, then All Programs, then Kodak, then Document Imaging and then Scanner Validation Tool.
