Hi Gene: I would recommend the Epson 2450. It has USB-2 and Firewire connections. Scans prints, transparencies, negatives up to 4" x 9" @ 2400 dpi optical. I got it to scan 120 B/W & color negs. Comes with Adobe Elements and SilverFast SE, along with Epson Twain 5.0 and Epson SmartPanel. I does a fantastic job for me. Price $399 retail down to $350 +/- street. I would recommend a minimum of 512 MB ram and a 20G+ Hard Drive using Firewire. The scanner is supported by Hamricks VueScan program also. My 3 cents . . .

I've boxes (100s) of 8x10 b&w photos from my ten year stint as a news photog. Plus a ton of color slides.
