comp.periphs.scanners - Technical discussion of scanners and imaging devices.
I am considering replacing the HP scanjet 5550c with a "budget" document scanner for Windows 2000 OS. The HP do a good job on photo scanning, but the TWAIN interface is quite third party application unfriendly, especially with the ADF scanning, it insisted to scan everything in 200 dpi photo mode which render it too slow to for document scanning. The third party application I am using for filing is PaperPort 9 and PhotoImpect 8. After many search on the web, the Canon DR-2080C comes closest to what I need. Any true live review on this scanner is welcome. TIA. Mick T
Hi, I have two canon scanners: Canon DR-5080C & DR-5020. Each time i try and scan, the paper has difficulty being picked up from the paper tray. When paper is picked up, it takes more than one sheet and sometimes it tries to take the complete pile in one go. Do i just need to replace the rollers in the machines, or is something else causing the problem? Hope someone can help me out. Regards, Tom
