Older operating systems are a security risk - just saying.

What scanner did you get?

Vuscan is cheap and works with pretty much any scanner you can connect to your computer.

I bought a lifetime licence for £30 or so years ago and have given up bothering with software that comes with scanners. Day to day I use a sheet feed scanner (part of an A3 printer/scanner) attached via my home network. For higher quality (eg slide scanning) I use a higher resolution Epson photo-scanner via USB.

I have used a film scanner with it - but I see that doubles the price from £50 to £100 these days. Updates are free and frequent - mainly adding new scanners.

However, I default to the macro lens route for slide scanning 90% of the time, quality is good (usually way better than my slides) and it is so much quicker than hi-res scanning. I hold the slides/negs in holders that came with a scanner and I have an LED lightbox and copystand to complete the setup.

Newer OPs are not immune either, but if you lose sleep because of the threat, just unplug the computer from the Internet. You don't need the WEB to scan.

Of course, but modern operating systems get security updates, older don't. In the end it is how much risk you're willing to take. For scanners there is the alternative of Vuescan. No need to take risks with older operating systems,

A real ION film2sd, low end scanning.

Found my mini laptop on W7 and, oh wonder, it works.

Now discovering all options .

I know, it is not connected to the World wide web.

BTW, VUESCAN doesn't know my scanner

I don't think you need to connect it to a computer. Just use an SD card.

I found out, but quality is not as I'd like it to be, so far.

It was 100,- new - you get what you pay. Looking at the samples in the Tweakers review, the results are fine for social media, but not what we are used to. A little tweaking might help.

TBH the sample scans were not as bad as I expected.

Sometimes it's possible to scan thru a linux-machine (raspberry pi). It may be worth investigating.

No, to much effort for maybe a once-in-a-digital-lifetime-experience.

It may be easier than you think- it depends a lot on the hardware you want to use though.
