Kerry: I had a similar experience with LS-30 and Windows 2000. All necessary
software, drivers, etc. were installed, but Windows 2000 always ran the 'new
hardware' wizard at startup -- I could just cancel the wizard and use the
scanner without problems.

I did fix it, so I don't see the wizard on startup any more. I'm sorry, but I
don't remember exactly what I did. It was something to do with getting Windows
to register that it knows about the scanner -- by making the right choices in
