Hi there all
My scanner shows up in Control Centre/Imformation/USB Devices but not under Hardware Browser and have no joy with any graphics program. Any help appreciated.
After that I just have to get my camera working properly and won't have to touch Windows apart from support.

Have you got sane installed? That's what connects the scanner to the other software. Try "sane your_scanner's_make_and_model" to google. There's probab;y a www.sane.org/ site, like all the other activities --- otherwise there will be a sourceforge project. Many modern ones are handled, a lot of older ones are.

Your camera's interface will depend on how popular a model it is. :D
