Thank you very much, some help on how to use them or how to use them; I do not get along very well with the Japanese language ... Smile

Apparently, only the MSX2 version of these disks has been dumped. The scanner utility has an extra option in the MSX2+ menu:

Can someone translate option 2 in this menu? Would it be related to color scanners???

Well, thanks to online OCR tools, it seems that option 2 is クラフィックツール and means Graphic Tools.

So, we need these MSX2+ dumps to know more about the content!

I have bought the color FW-RSU1C scanner to see if it will work or not....

I think you might get lucky... These things were pretty compatible, I think... I remember I found some white PC hand held scanner that had same connector, I plugged it in and only problem on MSX was that it took even more sharp resolution than the original, making the maximum scan area close to matchbox... Not that I ever realized where it was supposed to be used even originally. Smile

My guess is also that there is quite a good chance it will work. The main reason I bought it is to find out, it was only €12 at auction so if it does not work that is not a big deal. It is just a part of the MSX ecosystem that is not completely known and if I can help to document it I feel that is a privilege.

My guessing: I think it will work with the FW-RSU1C scanner, but not with the FW-RSU1 (without C, H or W) that has its own interface for Panaword U1 systems.

I am also curious to see the result.

Are these scanners able to scan gray tones? My dad owned a scanner back in the day, the FW-RSU1W going by the pictures and my memory. But I think I remember that it was only able to scan in dithered black / white? Perfect for Dynamic Publisher I guess ;). I recall at some point I made a program to average the black & white pixels to get a lower resolution grayscale image…

Edit: Ah, I see the wiki indeed confirms:

Quote:

the slide switch marked 2/16 allows to choose between pure monochrome or dithering (that will create gray tones)

I wonder how this will work for the colour scanners.

I owned too this scanner and I also remember that it was only able to scan in dithered black / white but I didn't really understand how to use it. I didn't keep it long
