I hadn't tried to install my old scanner on my new laptop until recently..
Which didn't work anymore. There were no drivers available for windows 8 and the company stopped making scanners altogether..
So I decided it was time for a new one, which arrived today. (A Canon LIDE 210)
(Very fast delivery, wheee!)
I still need to figure out some things, like how to change the standard scanning settings for colors, but overall I'm really pleased with it.
It definitely has a higher possible resolution than the old one.
Now all I need to do is create more drawings, so it's going to be used
