Sorry if this query is in the wrong category, it could easily come under General hardware or video too. I’m currently looking to get a scanner,quite possibly the Canon 3000F.
I understand the basics that scanners make use of a TWAIN driver to allow it’s use in other art programs,MS Word etc.
The thing is that I also have a Pinnacle PCTV pro Tv-tuner card also installed,& know it has a Twain device driver installed already-I believe it’s for the use of the supplied remote control.
What I’m concerned about is if I get the scanner,would the presence of multiple twain devices likely cause Windows to crash of at least become unstable? Although I have a dual-boot system, I’m planning on only using the scanner in Win XP Home Ed. (The PCTV pro is already installed & has been from the beginning)
I guess what I’m basically asking is has anyone else had multiple Twain based devices,(eg: Digital camera,scanner etc., or in this case TV tuner & scanner), operate okay under XP?
Thanks for your thoughts in advance.
