Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
Please allow a minute or 2 to review and reply back.
I just now located the documents for that ScanFront 300P
Just to confirm the issue...The administrator password ***** the Scantfront 300P has been lost or forgotten? Is that correct?
If so, what were you attempting to accomplish with the USB drive?
Were you trying to update the Firmware on the ScanFront300P?
Awaitng your reply.
Alrighty....thank you for the info.
The Username Account, you are calling 'Admin'....How are you trying to Login? FROM where? The software on a PC, or directly on the ScanFront300P?
Also....maybe you know.....but it never hurts to remind folks...The Username and the Password ***** case-sensitive. Which to me...was wierd for the username to be case sensitive....but in fact it is.
Have a look at the image link below showing the instructions to Logging in.
So...just an FYI......just make sure you are entering in the Username with the proper case.
Im looking for a PW reset or recover option now....please Stand-By
Im sorry for the confusion....I was thrown off track by your response to my initial confirming question.
No biggy.....I can certainly help you with making a bootable USB.
The Administrator password ***** ***** than the USERNAME password, and in fact has a seperate login TYPE .....Also the Operating Guide states:
User names and passwords are case-sensitive. Make sure to
enter the user and password ***** during device
Can you confirm the below image, is the SAME as you have please.
Making a Bootable USB requires a small program that writes a Boot Loader to the root of the USB drive, while also writing the Install data.
There are quite a few of these programs available, many are FREE.
Although the FREE versions tend to be a bit less attractive, with a more RAW looking interface. Not exactly recommended for the Novice Computer User.
Most of the Make-Bootable programs will only work on certain types of data files. But this is usually the most common types.
Here is a weblink to one of the programs I use frequently...called Rufus
Although, from what im putting together.....if your intention is to use the USB as the Boot source to update the firmware.... its not looking like is a viable way to update the Firmware.
Under the USB specifications in the OpManual...i found this:
The scanner will not start if you turn the power ON while a USB
memory device is inserted. Insert the USB memory device
after the scanner has started up.
First.....what format is your Install Media in? Meaning.....what is the file extension? Is it a single file....or multiple files?
Would you like to have a Remote Session? It would make it a thousand times easier for YOU to understand, and help me to better show you with fewer mistakes, and less confusion.
And HOW are you testing your bootable USB disk after you make it bootable with the .bin file?
TO make sure it works....or in your case, doesn't
Thank you for the clip......are you able to go into the BIOS, and change the Boot Priority to Boot from USB first....THEN the internal storage drive?
Even if the USB drive WAS working.....the scanner doesnt know to check the USB port to Boot from it. The scanner is setup to Boot from the internal storage FIRST. So once it looks at the internal storage, and finds a Boot record, it begins to Boot, and USB is not even checked for bootable media.
So again, wether the USB drive was done correctly or not...doesnt matter....it will never boot from USB until the BIOS is setup to CHECK the USB port for boot record FIRST.
Where did you get the instructions for updating the Scanner firmware anyways?
