When I had windows 98 my scanner used to scan doucments in ms word document. When I shifted to windows XP if I have to scan a document it scans in jpeg format and that opens in photoshop. The file size increases if I have to attach it as an attachment. I tried to reinstall the software but there is no use.

If you scan the document, make sure it is saved in JPEG format. What
you do afterwards is to download FreeOCR. This program is free and
works better than most of the ones you purchase.
Just install it in 5 minutes, open your scanned jpeg image and click on
OCR button and in seconds, the program will bring it up in editable
format for you to change, correct or whatever. Or just click on the OCR
MS Word button, and it will open it up in Microsoft Word. Here is the
Scanners only see millions of dots. Unless it has software to convert a picture into a document, all documents are seen by scanners as pictures made of of millions of dots. Software is available to convert it to a Microsoft Doc format but it is very expensive.
No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.
there is not drivers or software made for Windows XP.
however, you can use the win98 or WinME software. as long as the Windows Xp is running at 32 bits. I have done that with HP flat bed scaner.
don't worry about the non-certified software with MS.
Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
