    Scanning Software?

    I have a CanoScan 8800F and it came with MP Navigator EX which doesnt seems ok. I was wondering what some of you use and for what reasons? I've heard of VueScan and SilverFast but not sure which to go with.. just looking for more controls/options then I have with the bundled software

    I've got a nifty little scanner/printer thingy, Epson B900 or something, and I just use the default software myself - does the trick, and allows to scan at higher or lower detail-levels (to the point where it's the opposite ends of the spectrum) and I'm not about to complain - it does it's job, and I didn't even know that the scanner was even compatible with other software.

    Vuescan has a free trial with all features (it just makes watermarked scans). Try it out and see if it does what you need.
