Hi Guys. I've been away for a while pursuing my 'other love' - film photography (i.e. the 'Analog' side).
I have an Epson V750 Pro scanner and I need to scan some negatives and wondered if you have any suggestions on a couple of very irritating niggles:
1) When I tried to load the 'Silverfast Ai' software provided with the scanner, it loads all the files but then I get a message saying:
"This program can only be installed on versions of Windows designed for the following processor architectures x86"
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium on a new Advent Core 2- Quad with 6Gb of SDD Ram. When I check the 'Explore' menu it tells me that it's stored the Silverfast files in a folder called Program Files x86 - so I presume I already have the correct 'architecture'. I'm at a loss.........
Secondly, I use Nikon Capture NX2 for PP work. I can scan negs from the V750 into all manner of formats but I'd like to use TIFF and JPEG. However, when I try to open the files I've created, NX2 gives me a message about them not being compatible.
Does anyone have any suggestions or solved a similar problem? Please bear in mind that I'm far from computer literate, so please draw me a picture or give me a list as I will be completely lost otherwise.
