You say you do not want to lose quality. Unless you have a really good scanner then I would forget it and take the photos to a specialist shop that can scan them and burn them onto CD for you. The Fuji shop can for example do this but I'm unsure of the cost and if you have quite a few photos it could be quite expensive. For negatives you will need a negative scanner a standard scanner cannot do it unless you have a scanner with a negative holder.
I've scanned a few photos and printed them out but they are not as good as the original by any means but its only a cheap Epson scanner I have.
What scanner do you have?
