Can't find it on the website?
Not on website, although sometimes not posted, OR may be store specific?
People tend to buy these as a one off, to do all their negatives or slides in one go. As a result there are plenty 'used once' in great condition on Ebay or for sale pages.
Looks like it's a different group of people voting this time!

Is the software for this compatible with Windows 10? Can it be downloaded anywhere? Got the hardware but my folks lost the software.
These work surprisingly well and can bring all of those oldenie day photygraphies back to life.
Just pencil in a month or two of free evenings for the transference and you're away.
How cruel the passage of time are thee !.

Hi Lidl have a website you might want to search on lidl-service.com/ I could find the manuals for a number of scanners on there but couldnt see drivers when I looked. (I found searching for Negative returned more results than scanner thought), The last page of a few of the manuals pointed to a company called "Kompernass" so you might want to try there for software. Its not a well laid out website as it took me a while to spot that when you click on software a link appears under the buttons for that device...

(Just remember to run anything you download thru the antivirus etc as usual)

And that is usually where the critical comments come in, i.e. If you are going to spend that much time, get a decent scanner (more expensive) and do it once!

Not find you don't like the results and have to do it again!!

Nice find on kompernass. Many thanks!
these are useless unless you have only the negatives left. if you have the photos in the set simply scan those on a flatbed scanner for a more accurate colour replication and better detail using something like speederscan.
There are lots of previously very expensive versions of these on eBay etc although I imagine this could be just as good.
Does this scan to TIFF format? It's pretty well useless if it scans only to JPEG format – as most of these budget scanners do.

I'm rather hesitant to buy anything electronic with the Silvercrest brand (one of Lidl's TMs). I've seen headphones and HiFi speakers fall apart after less than a year of use. But perhaps this scanner will be the exception?
There were none at my local store
Most of these cheap scanners are terrible quality. It's not really a scanner, more like a cheap webcam in a box. And often out of focus, poor colours etc.
Not really with the effort.
