sorry pete, for some reason your later responses went into my scam folder, why?????? It was however my fault I'd destroyed the Silver fast CD envelope with my serial tag number, so couldn't connect. As I hadn't heard any more from you I called in a wizz kid neighbour who got my scanner working via his View scam membership, although I'm obliged to join the club. You were very helpful. Have to see if Epson will reinstate my silver fast service tag.
Maybe in touch with you again, but thank you.Richard
