I have a different make scanner [microtek v6usl] when I upgraded to xp from 98 to xp no problems I can scan direct to printer/ fax/ email or to software on the computer. HP should be able to do the same as they are good scanners have you the latest XP driver?

It's the scanner driver that drives the direct copy facility, so you need to update that, rather than the printer driver

thanks barry keith,david h, did download updated driver from hp i just hope it is something i have overlooked in setup maybe

It's not drivers that do the work, it is extra software that is loaded with the scanner, that does the above.
