A few reviews of this scanner said it was easy to install. That's not been my experience on a Win98SE machine. Unless you can get some better feedback from users, I'd not buy one.

P.S.: Unless I can get a refund, or get it working, I'll have a new, unused one avialable real cheap, real soon!

Hi- I too am having a terrible time getting my new scanner to scan properly. I'm running on an HP with Windows XP, don't think my computer is the problem. When scanning slides, I get half the photo green, half red. Anybody have any idea what would be causing this? It's a brand new scanner, I have yet to have any useable scans completed. Grrrrrr...

I too have had intermittant problems with the otherwise fantastic scanner. My issue is that occassionally I get colored bars that run parallel to the long (width) of the slide. I have yet to find its cause and a consistant method of fixing the problem.

The4se bar may cover the entire slide or may show only a few in varried positions, but always apparllel along the width.

IBM T43 with 1Gb RAM and 80 Gb HD in Windows Explorer Professional.
Is there as help out there on this matter?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
