Not sure where I should ask for help about this, so I decided to post here. My apologies if this is the wrong forum.
You see, I’m trying to use my sister’s scanner so I can create pictures, sprites, etc. on my own, to be used in my posts and my stories. Thing is, my sister’s PC fried a few months ago- they had it fixed it with a new Motherboard, but apparently they forgot to replace ALL the software it had (and apparently, my sister -who knows even less about computers than I do- can’t find the original programming CDs.) The scanner (a flatbed one) won’t work with her PC anymore. After much experimenting, I found out that I CAN scan if I use the “insert graphics” options of the Wordperfect writing program it has. But of course, the pictures are only visible on WP documents.
I tried to use the scanner on my PC (wich has Windows XP- my sister’s uses Windows ME) and it won’t work. I found the right driver at the maker’s website, but the installing instructions were missing (!!!)
The best solution would be to find a way to convert WP images into JPG. or similar format, I know it can be done, but not how.
Otherwise, I would need some way to install the Mirascan driver on my PC.
