    XP Won't Work with Scanner

    I just found out there's no driver available that will allow my film scanner (Canoscan FS 2710) to work in XP, which makes it all pointless for me until I can afford a new scanner. Is there anything I can do about this? Can I temporarily downgrade to Windows 98, and then use the XP recovery discs when I want to go back?

    Bummin' Hard,

    George

    It's not a bug FG.
    You have to right click each link and choose "copy shortcut".Then paste it.
