I agree with Sharon, try Goodwill, or if you can find one, a good local pawn shop. I still have an ancient Epson flatbed scanner and will probably cry when it finally dies.

Once again all thanks for the suggestions.

Not sure it was here or another forum (not going back to reread all) but someone suggested my scanner actually scans to a flashdrive and it does so I will try this as first option. Then if not will get all photos together and if I have negatives too I will look into an outside source doing this all in one time shot.

It is ashame windows XP is not supported any more because of all the systems I had this one was the easiest to use with less flaws. I just do not know if my computer could support the windows 10 system and what it would cost to install. I may take it to my computer store and have them give me an estimate.

JT if you have an iPhone or an iPad you can use the scanner built into the "notes" app. It does quite a good job.

In case you're in the market for some unsolicited advice... I'm guessing your computer is 5+ years old? Let's say you take it to a computer store and they sell you some hardware upgrades and Win10 and install it. Probably $250 minimum. And you're still left with a 5 year old computer that is orders of magnitude slower than new. You can get a pretty respectable new laptop with Windows for under $400.

These are my thoughts too Jeff and that is why I hesitate to do any upgrades to it. I had to replace the power supply recently and that was something that was a quick fix. I will not get a lap top but will get a full size desk system again. My computer is over 15 years old and was built by a friend who has moved so no more connection there. It has served me well. Someday I may hit the button and won't be able to visit the site.

JT, I'm a computer consultant in real life. I have bought nothing but refurbished Dell computers for about the last five years. I have yet to have one fail. Look for ones that have been factory refurbished by Dell. They are usually a year or so old...often business lease returns. The last two 17" laptops I bought you couldn't tell from brand new. (working on one of them as we speak and my husband has the other.) I got them on Amazon for about half what a new one would have been.
