    I don't know if this is a hardware or software problem. When I try scanning a batch of photos, sometimes I can get 20-30 scans done before the scanner fails to return to its start point. I then usually have to reboot - just restarting the scanner doesn't seem to cure the problem.

    It doesn't seem to depend on whether I initiate the scan from a program like PaintShop Pro or Photoshop Elements, or use the Epson Smart Panel interface instead. I recently downloaded Picasa and scanned through that, but the same "hang-up" thing happened after some scans.

    I'm running Win98SE and have downloaded a "new" scanner driver without improvement.

    Any ideas? Many thanks.
