    Have you tried using a copy of XP loaded in a true virtual machine like VMWare? The emulation option in the OS is not at all the same thing. I use Windows XP in a virtual machine on a Mac, and I have found no incompatibilities (as long as the device has a USB interface). It's probably too much hassle for a simple inkjet, but for devices like scanners it's a worthwhile option.

    Kodak just announced that in-line with cancelling the ink-jet printer line of business, they are requesting an extension of the bankruptcy proceedings. They estimate that it will take them until mid or late 2013 to emerge from bankruptcy.

    I think the major problem is the switch between 32-bit and 64-bit processors. I have an old printer that uses Polaroid Spectra film, but it only works with Windows ME (bleh) and older. It was fine using a Win98 VM with my old XP computer (32-bit), but when I moved up to a 64-bit CPU, all of the legacy equipment stopped working.

    Might be simplest to buy a used older machine with a 32-bit processor and XP.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I would like to be corrected on this statement: Kodak is showing itself incapable of restructuring into a profitable company, and liquidation in the future seems a real possibility. More value might be had selling the commercial printing business to Canon, and selling or closing all other divisions. I'm not seeing much synergy between the groups in their new proposed structure.
