Hi Jim Rawls,I had the same thing happen a few days ago and don't know what caused it. I was luckier though as I had just scanned a little over 200 pages. Nick gave me some steps to try to retrieve it. They were a little involved but I finally got it done, but it's not very usable after you get it back. A number of pages were damaged and would have to be redone. It would almost be faster to do it over again, but I don't know about your 600 page book. That would be enough to make a grown man cry. I wish we knew what causes it in the first place so we could avoid it in the future. I've been scanning for several years now and I believe that was a first time for me.
Good luck. Bud
He didn't ask for a copy of the book, but he wanted my error log, and he said that the error log didn't show anything in Kurzweil to cause the problem.----- Original Message ----- From: <mailto:micka@xxxxxxxxxx>mickey To: <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, September 27, 2007 10:03 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Boy am I discouraged.Hi, Jim. Has Stephen asked for a copy of the book? Sometimes he can figure out what's up, thereby making the program better. I've seen that book, and it would be more than discouraging to scan and then have that happen.Mickey Prahin check out this exciting business opportunity and it's totally free!!! <http://www.mypowermall.com/biz/home/4941>http://www.mypowermall.com/biz/home/4941 e-mail <mailto:micka@xxxxxxxxxx>micka@xxxxxxxxxx Phone: 614-670-4011 Windows Live Messenger: <mailto:micka@xxxxxxxxxx>micka@xxxxxxxxxx Skype: micka529 Cell: 614-499-3505 ----- Original Message ----- From: <mailto:jazzpiano@xxxxxxxxxxx>Jim To: <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, September 28, 2007 12:56 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Boy am I discouraged. Hi all,As some of you know, Lissi sent out some books to some of us. I am scanning, As Thousands Cheer, the life of Irving Berlin. Well, I scanned this book twice, and still it isn't ready. Each time, I have met the dreaded error message from Kurzweil, the file cannot be opened, its format cannot be determined. I was in the end of rank spelling, and the file wouldn't open. The book is over 600 pages long. I spent hours scanning, and more time in rank spelling, and twice Kurzweil has done me in. I've written Stephen about it, and there isn't any good answer I guess. But it is discouraging for sure. Yes,, I'll scan the book, but right now, I could throw korowai in the trash. Frown.Jim Rawls
