Old scanners not working?

Postby Editor » Mon Dec 02, 2019 12:31 pm

Hi I've been talking to someone at VueScan about their software and they have said that a common problem is people having an old scanner that they can't use because the drivers are out of date. Apparently a lot of old printers and scanners can't cope with new operating systems like Catalina and even Windows 10. I was just wondering whether any forum users have experienced this problem? Would be good to know if a feature on the topic would be of interest to genealogists.

Thanks

It would be of interest to me Sarah.

Me too Sarah. In fact a little “how to” page in each magazine for tech nerds like me would be really useful.
Thanks Sally

One reason I keep a couple of computers running Windows XP.

You can pick them up for a pittance, nobody wants them now.
