The scanner {I just might faint}

Turned my old dino computer on. Lo and behold I get a "Found New Hardware: HP Deskjet F4200 series" prompt. :-O

Clicked it. "Found New Hardware Installation Wizard" pops up.

It's apparently now installed! :-O :-D

{::dizzy with shock and delight::}

But something seems to always go I'll hold my breath a while longer. Hopefully can start scanning the covers of novels I've reviewed this evening. Then of course I'll need to learn how exactly the process works.

More later and hopefully SOON.

Congrats Cindy! You will most likely need a photoeditor to crop/shrink/mess with the scans once they are done. Let me point you to Gimp - strange name but great free photoshop clone. Should help you out.

Okay Absinthe: Thanks for the tip!

Unfortunately it turns out I was a bit premature and jinxed myself; I've discovered the current computer doesn't have the disk space to accept the installation; however, we have another computer on hand. If that fails, will likely break down and get a new computer. That will be a must-do in the future anyway (the current is truly a relic and a friend advised me he's stunned I managed to download Windows XP on this old dino, lol!).

Well computers just keep getting cheaper and cheaper now which is a good thing! Hope it works out for you!
