Re: filmscanners: CD from Scanner

From what you have written you are using Direct CD and trying to drop a scan straight out of the scanner to the CD (presumably CD R/W). I think your problem is that the scanner is far too slow for the CD recorder.
As suggested already you should scan to your hard drive and then copy to the CD. I would suggest that you create a directory on your hard drive and scan everything into it. When you have just under 650MB of files in the directory save the whole lot to a CD-R (not R/W) using Adaptec Easy CD Creator (I use Nero so I don't know a lot about Easy CD). Once you know you have checked the CD has been created correctly delete the contents of the directory.
It's best generally to use CD-R as they are generally more reliable than CD-RW and they are cheaper too. I only use CD-RW for temporary file storage (eg. to move some files to another machine). If you use Direct CD you lose 15-20% of the potential storage area - I never bother even when using CD-RW I save using the equivalent of Easy CD Creator and erase before reuse.

Subject: filmscanners: CD from Scanner

I am just starting to get into digital imaging.  Computers to me are not
intuitive (to put it mildly) and I am not being modest.  

I am trying to create CDs from images on my flatbed scanner (Epson 1200U) to
the CD.  I follow the steps but I am unable to read the result.  I have a
Dell computer with Windows Me, 256 mg of RAM, a CD ROM bay and a CD RW bay,  
and an Adaptec CD writer system that came with the computer.

I called Dell and I received that did not seem right to me, so I am hoping I
can get some other thoughts.

What I was told is that the Adaptec does not do well copying from the scanner
 and that my best procedure with the Adaptec software was to copy to the hard
drive and then copy to the CD.  It was also suggested that I might acquire
another CD burner software that would do a better job.  

It seems to me that the whole idea of CD burning is to avoid having to fill
up the hard drive with images.  I realize that I could erase the image, but
the procedure of copying to HD then to CD and then erasing the image on the
HD seems very cumbersome.

The tech also suggested a ZIP drive.  I thought the purpose of the CD was to
avoid having to get a ZIP drive.

I would appreciate any thoughts on this subject.

Thanks in advance.
