I have been trying to scan old photos and save into a file but it just doesn't seem to want to work. I have done it before but this is just different from the last time. Driving me NUTS Dianne
When scanning photos with a scanner and having difficulties processing the photo's, it can be a number of problems.
1.) Make sure the Scanner's Ports are clean, blow into them and get any dust out.
2.) Make sure the Scanner's Ports are plugged in fine.
3.) Replug the scanner, and wait a couple minutes.
A nifty trick I found when Having problems such as this, is to Screenshot your photos.
What this means, if you don't already know, is if you can get the photo's to show up on your PC and just can't save them, just Hit the "prt sc" button on your keyboard, this stands for Print Screen, then open paint and hit CTRL + V, or Right-Click and Paste. This will enable you to save it in paint, and then just open it as a .JPG file. the PRT SC button is right above the Backspace button usually, and if your on a laptop, you will have to hit FN which is to the left of the spacebar, hold FN and hit prt sc.
Hope this helped - CA
