Just thought I'd share this link to a website many may already be aware of .
I had been looking for a service manual for an Epsom film scanner and found a link to this website .
Wondering what else is on there I did a few random searches , and almost everything you could need is there .
Camera manuals , Scanner manuals , printers etc ,OEM software user manuals , service manuals etc.

Anyway , if you need a manual , check it oout or save the link just in case .

https://www.manualslib.com/brand/minolta/

While I'm at it , here's a few other websites of interest ;
Minolta for manuals from the digital era , they scrubbed the film camera section . Also here is scanners and the Software downloads for digital cameras and scanners .
Up to Windows XP only (and Mac );
http://www.konicaminoltasupport.com

Manuals for almost all film cameras made can be found here ;
http://butkus.org/chinon/index.html
Leaving a small donation so he can continue with the site and increasing whats available would be helpful .

Another Minolta manuals resource site is here ;
http://www.vikenk.com/minolta_manual.htm
Some are for instand download , other require them to be sent for a small fee .

If anyone knows of other usefull website , please add to this thread to help others .
Cheers all.

Minolta no longer bothers to offer support for their old cameras .
They scrubbed the film camera section years ago , now even though the website pages are still there , you can't download manuals , drivers or firmware updates .
If your ever likely to need any of these , download them and save them ASAP from one of the following where they are still available ; see below .

The website's still there and you can click on the links , but you cannot download anything any more , so drives , firmware updates and even instruction manuals are no longer available .

.

For firmware updates you need to get them here


If your likely to ever buy any more Minolta digital cameras , you'ld best download all the F/W updates while there still available . 

For a user manual you need to go to one of the following ;

https://www.touslesdrivers.com/index.php?v_page=12&v_code=430

If your likely to ever buy any more Minolta digital cameras , you'ld best download all the F/W updates while there still available .

For a user manual you need to go to one of the following ;
https://photo-manuals.com/manual/konica-minolta
http://www.manualsdir.com/brands/konica-minolta/13.html
https://www.manualslib.com/brand/konica-minolta/digital-camera.html

For film cameras , see here ;

https://www.butkus.org/chinon/minolta.htm

Even if you've a really old camera like the Minolta RD-175 , you can get the driver for it , as long as you've got an old P.C to run it on , Windows XP or earlier ( hey it's a 1995 DSLR !) from here ;

http://www.helpdrivers.com/cameras/Minolta/RD-175/

Don't forget , these are drivers so you can connect the camera to your P.C to transfer images if you don't have a card reader , but there here all the same ;

http://www.helpdrivers.com/cameras/Minolta/

Another very good website was Vikenk , who is no longer there , so best thing to do if your interested in this gear is to download everything and back it up on a spare disc/DVD , as who knows how long these resources will still be available ?
