[filmscanners] Re: Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner,



Laurie,

I could be wrong calling the Epson driver a 64-bit twain driver.  If
memory serves me, Epson referred to it as a "64-bit driver".  I did not
ask for it as I was, and still am, on 32-bit machines - mainly because
of the Sprintscan 120.
