Some malfunctions . . .
on January 18, 2010
I got this for my father's Christmas present. He has lots of slides from the 50s and 60s that he has stored away and I thought he'd enjoy easier access to the photos. We set it up and I started scanning the slides. When I went to run slide show, it showed the group that I had originally scanned but not ones that I added later. However, when I took the memory card out of the scanner and put it in a camera, they all showed up. I'm not sure I understand why this is happening. I popped the card back into the scanner to see if all of the images could now be seen but, once again, it only showed me the ones I had originally scanned. I opted for this particular product because it mentioned it could be operated as a stand-alone item without a computer program. I gave it 3 stars because it scanned each slide quite quickly and it was easy to operate. However, I had wanted to buy something that would be hassle-free. This isn't hassle-free. I'm not impressed.
