Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet 8300: I have faced lots of issues since I purchased this scanner. I purchased two of them. The Transparency Adapter was wrecked on both and had to be swapped. It also caused some trouble communicating with my PC. It will be running along flawlessly, and subsequently I given the next scanning command and it reports: "Scanner not found." It doesn't expand negatives. Slides spit out hazily and unreadable. Totally Worthless!
