RE: filmscanners: OT: Device recognition, Win 98: HERE IS REG INFO FOR PRINTSCAN 35

I thought I'd be of help if anyone wants to test this theory with a Microtek

extension - @Home is on a UNIX box I assume and is case sensitive, and I
renamed the file extension so that someone wouldn't accidentally run the reg
file without thinking.  Here is the key it will create:

Good luck, and thank you everyone for contributing to this list!
