Does anybody have the time to help me learn to install scanner drivers ??

Follow though via email if possible ??

I have disks for most scanners I've collected but most all W95/98/ME.

There was a time it seems they were just about giving away scanners. Sales/Rebates,etc.

I must have 10-15 never even opened.

I've been using an Artec e+48u of recent just because the box says--XP...

That has been acting up so pulled out an old Canon FB620P. I see they seem to have XP drivers on Canon site. a driver.... I guess I create a directory/file to download drivers to. I created a folder \DRIVERS

How do I get such to work ??? It might be a .exe file. How do I browse an .exe ??

Use the ADD HARDWARE in CONTROL PANEL ?? I try to direct my 'browse' to my \DRIVERS directory. I get NO OPTION but to search for an .inf file. ya know..browse to my downloaded \DRIVER directory but nothing shows because all that is there is an .exe and I'm given no option to get anything else but a .inf....EMPTY \DRIVERS because no .inf showing.

Anybody willing to help ?? I can show my result with 'screenshots'.

It would be helpful for you to post "screenshots" to help us understand better what it is you are trying to do and what operating system you are using.
