    Thanks Smith... I have searched all the Epson models for the slide scanning capabilities along with the CD printing, and it seems like the Epson Stlus RX 700 is no longer available. I really do want to buy and Epson.

    I am quilty of not stating up front that I was not looking for professional, desktop publishing type quality. I have several thousand slides, but I simply want to convert them to digital and at most, perhaps print a 4 x 6 print. Nothing professional, just home, comsumer quality is all I am looking for.

    I have limited destop space, so I wanted a DVD/CD printer, scanner, document printer all in one.

    I read all the links and material you suggested and I appreciate you help, however, like I said most of that material was for professional folks and way out of my price range. I'm looking for the $200 to $300 price range. Thanks so much, again.

Slide/filmstrip scanning places special requirements on scanners which are not likely to be met by consumer-grade all-in-one printers. You need very high optical resolution, back-lighting, special accommodations for focus, specialized software, etc. If you want high-quality film scans, I'd suggest a dedicated slide/film scanner or a good stand-alone flatbed.

These links might help in getting a general understanding of scanner requirements for film.

Personally, I am considering an Epson V500 flatbed scanner, in the $150-200 price range. Here is a link to a CNET review.

Hope it helps,

A lot of different people aee these questions and answer the ones that they choose to answer.      Consumer reports, in their November issue,  rated the Cannon PIMA MP 610 as the number one pick for value for the money. From researching the printer questions on here,I personally I would stick with a big name brand.  I am still using a panasonic tractor feed printer from 1980 something along with an Epson Photo printer. I jsut purchased the Canon that I told you about to give as a present. My thoughts only.

A lot of these older units will not support scanning from anything but a real parallel port, it is the way the drivers were written. If you want to print, your best option in my opinion is to get a parallel print server. This adapter connects to the parallel port on the printer and then you connect a network cable to the adapter. Follow the configuration instructions that come with the adapter and you are good to go. Typically called a parallel print server.

I can't get my printer to print. When I select the mode it only has copy, fax and scan. How can I get this thing to print?

The modes are for standalone functions. When the unit is connected properly to the computer, the drivers installed in the system and this particular printer selected in the print dialog box, it should print regardless of the mode set.

Printing an enlarged version of a scanned photo

The best way is to use software like Corel PhotoPaint and RESAMPLE the pix to the sze you want. YOu typically will get better resolution.

You could also try selecting the "Fit To Page" setting of the printer window before you tell it to print.

Difference between ''Auot Color'' and ''Full Color Mode

Most Colour machines have three settings.

Auto Colour, Machine will determine if the original is Colour or Black and White from its scan. Then print in the format that best suits the original.

Full Colour, Machine will copy in full Colour regardless of Original type.

Black and White, Machine will copy or scan in B & W regardless of original type.

Hope this is of some help.
