[filmscanners] RE: Switch from Win98SE to XP?



Well, as about color management I think both Win2K Pro and XP Pro do support
them.
I did monitor calibrations in both OSs using hardware tool which generate
and install the .icm monitor color profile and that worked in both operating
systems.

BTW, I also have Plextor CD-RW (40x16x40 i.e. the new model) and it has
worked fine in Win2K as well in XP Pro. The CD read functionality was
initially supported by OS built-in drivers even prior to Plextor software
installation.

I built my system (Asus motherboard) from scratch and installed Win2K. I've
had various problems and wouldn't choose Win2K again. I had to disable the
default setting of switching the PC to standby after a time of inactivity,
as I could not recover from this! I suspected this was a problem of Win2K
and my motherboard.

The most annoying problem was that operating system didn't recognise new CDs
unless I rebooted. This turned out to be a program in the startup that once
removed fixed the problem. So this now works for my main CD drive but not
for the Plextor CD writer, which I can't read from.

Not very important but the sound no longer works after a media player was
installed and uninstalled. A lot of the problems with Win2K seem to be
software related. I will change to Windows XP and might even buy a Mac next
time as I've no patience for sorting out hardware problems!

As an experienced programmer, NT is the least hassle operating system I've
used but I don't think it supports colour management. I would advise trying
Windows XP.

Adding my 2 cents to this discussion I would like to mention after building
my new system I went through this beginning with Win2k Pro all the way to XP
Pro.
My Win2K crashed completely so that whole system has collapsed (including
even breaking RAID 1 array) after my stupid games with BIOS DRAM settings.
I decided to jump up to this opportunity to move further to XP Pro being
convinced by my friend
(who is experienced programmer and photo amateur and scanner user just like
me).
Initially I was hesitating from the similar reasons mentioned by one of our
fellow listener striving to avoid new, potentially buggy things, but after
consulting with the friend of mine and inquiring several XP Pro and Nikon IV
ED users about NikonScan reliability under XP I made the decision.
The XP seems to run flawlessly so far, the UI is quite convenient although
unusual for previous Win versions user like me.
I run NikonScan though PS7 (as twain appl) frequently using x6 batch scan at
full resolution keeping the images in the memory (have 512 MB) until whole
strip is done and processed in Photoshop - running smoothly so far.

Alex Z

I'm using Win2K, rather than XP, but I think the robustness of the NT kernel
and file system makes the changeover worthwhile. Personally, I recommend
running NTFS, because it's so much more reliable than FAT32, although a good
argument can be made for reserving a FAT32 partition for temp files, because
it's faster. The end result will be far fewer system crashes (if any), and
an end to "lost cluster chains" in ScanDisk.
