    Hi, I picked up a Scanmaker 9600 XL a couple months ago. I few weeks
    ago I started having trouble working with graphics in Photoshop 5.0.
    that I created with this scanner.

    The .tif's I scan can't be cut or pasted to and they can't be saved
    as anything but .tifs, psd's or raw's. Old graphics that I scanned
    with this scanner when I first got it, or graphics that didn't
    originate from this scanner, can be worked with normally.

    I'm going to reinstall the software for both the scanner and Photoshop
    5.0 and I'm assuming that will fix the problem. But I'm still curious
    as to why this happened. Could the scanner have been creating weird
    ..tif's that Photoshop could open but not entirely deal with?

    Are they 16 bit/color by any chance? If so convert them to 8 bit.
