I bought this a while ago from Lidl and have only just plugged it in and set it up. I am really pleased with it. It is a 5 megapixels scanner which I think is fine. I don't get why it has had any bad reviews, after all it is a cheap scanner (identical to the Ion one that is still on the market) so a user must know that is what they are getting - after all it cost less than £30! If anyone wanted a professional scanner then they should do their research first and pay more!

As for using it, I put the CD in, loaded the software, restarted the computer and plugged in the scanner to a USB port. It was recognised immediately. I opened the software and allowed the scanner to do the initial calibration, as requested by the manual. After this I successfully scanned slides without any problem whatsoever. I 'photoshopped' the pictures afterwards in my favourite photo viewer rather than changing anything in the scanner software, mainly because I am more familiar with the viewers tools. I had absolutely no problem with the scanning and the picture quality was very good. I personally am delighted with the purchase.
I've got the SND3600 A1, and have used it successfully in the past, but today? it won't acquire the image, then says can't capture the image, it then says please wait.....forever! what's wrong, please can anyone advise?
