do this driver first. then the epp268.exe. It will allow you to not have the scanner on when you boot, which is nice. p.s. I don't have a member name or password. If you could e-mail me a member name and password. I would appreciate it. scanport.inf should be copied in the the c \windows\inf folder. I also sent the driver 35tma_11.exe for the 35mm slide and negative attachment. Plus I sent the win31 driver scsi401l.exe.
