He guys, I have an iMac 1.83 ghz with 1 gig. of RAM. I have a lexmark printer hooked up to the imac, which worked great right after hook up. I was making an album with pictures from my 35mm camera, so I started scanning them in. The pictures totaled about 100. Now if I try to scan pictures in, I may get 1 or 2 in, but then it locks up and I have to disconnect the printer, turn it off and open the program again. I have restarted the computer, so would reinstalling the printer be the best solution now? It's just really annoying. The progress bar stops just short of half way when scanning a photo and then waits about 20 seconds and say unable to communicate. But it lets me name the photo and say whether its jpeg, tif etc.(most of the time) Any ideas? I have no problems making copies or printing.
