Can anyone recommend a cheap and cheerful scanner that will work with Win XP Service Pack 2?
I bought a Packard Bell Diamond 1200 Plus which would not work (software would not install etc) and I was told by their phone advice line "Its all Microsofts fault they've changed all the security settings when they did SP2, you'll have to contact them."
I found this unbelievable. I guess most Xp users will have SP2 by now and Packard Bell's attitude is staggeringly unhelpful. Anyone out there thinking of buying a Packard Bell Diamond 1200 Plus......dont touch it with a barge pole.
Anyway, I'm off to PC World to get my money back but would like a nice cheap scanner that wont give me hassle and will work in Win Xp SP 2. Any ideas?
Thanks for all replies. I got a Canon Lide 35 at Fifty nine quid. It is superb: software installed perfectly and it does excatly what it says on the box. Thats all I want. Pity Packard Bell are incapable of providing a similar product. I guess you get what you pay for.
