    What's a basic film or print scanner that you'd recommend?

    I don't want it to cost much, my cameras don't. I won't be shooting
    much either.

  2. Then it will probably be cheaper for you to have CDs made from your negatives
    by a retailer (check with your lab or camera shop).

  3. Last year's "Big Deal Scanner" ... check ebay and tree lawns before
    garbage day. Probably a better deal than a new $100 wonder.

    The older hp scanners aren't supported by Windows XP. Check that
    you can get drivers.

    I can trully recommend the HP s20, very cheap and very impressive
    results. Uses USB and works with XP too. Does prints, film and slides
    (and takes them directly without holders).

    Agreed. For a cheap way to scan film and slides with good results this
    is the way to go. The s10 is a good choice as well if you have SCSI
    connection.
    One requirement is using Ed Hamricks _Vuescan_ scanning software.
