Hopefully, you'll be able to scan all the colours of the rainbow... :-)

I've seen a few of these PB Scanners which came bundled with PB machines sold by PC World. In fact I had a small collection (4) of the 1200 and 2400 scanners that had all given up the ghost because they work off USB with no external power supply. People left them connected to the PC even though they were hardly used and they simply burnt out with constant initialisation every time the computer started up.

I've actually got one of the 2400 models that still works (with the drivers) and can`t give it away! The machines were, as stated manufactured by Mustek so the driver link given should work fine.
