Re: filmscanners: SilverFast Upgrade Disaster

Lloyd, it looks like I won't have to use TWAIN as a possible workaround after 
all.  Ian Lyons' post indicates that he thinks my problem is due to my using a 
single unpatitioned drive for everything.  Photshop doesn't like that, it wants 
its own reserved area for a scratch disc.  So I'm going to buy another hard 
drive and dedicate a part of it to Photoshop.

I see in another post that Steve made a suggestion to solve your problem.  I 
hope it works.  But you should also make sure that you've partitioned your 
drive and set aside a part of it for the exclusive use of Photoshop for a catch
