Thanks for the replies, Art and all. I guess I didn't descrive my system completely. I'm currently using WinME, on an older 266MHz PC with 384MB memory. I have SCSI installed for external CDR and external hard disk, use HP Photosmart S20 and HP 6300CXi scanners with USB. I'm primarily looking to get a higher res slide/film neg scanner and know that I should be looking at Firewire or SCSI probably. Microsoft has said they won't do new USB 2.0 on anything but XP I believe. So, I'll probably upgrade the PC at the end of the year and will get XP Pro. Still, I'm not clear on whether I should be looking at Polaroid, Nikon, or other? 4000 scanner. I think I also, when I get the new PC, go for the Epson 2450 flatbed scanner. Then I'll be using whatever 400 scanner I get and the 2450 and sell the two I'm using now. The SCSI interface I have now is at least 3 years old so I don't think it's the fastest SCSI currently available. I've learned that most 4000 scanners come with or at least use Firewire but is Firewire faster than the laetst SCSI? Anyway, I'd like to have faster scans than I currently have on the HP S20, which even at 2400 is dreadfully slow. thanks again for the help. .....Art __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
