Not long ago, got hold of the device and accessories. So far, been unable to get it to work ( I don't have Firewire ) My computers are all newish and Windows based. My computer skills are reasonable, but a bit dated. Has not been urgent, since I've gotten pretty decent results copying slides both with cameras and Canoscan 9000. Frankly, unless the results were much superior to current methods, my instinct is to be sure it works then sell it on. Suggestions appreciated, obviously, under the circumstances, expensive solutions might not work for me. Thanks!
