    There really does not seem to be a plan at Kodak on how to get to the right size quickly. Unfortunately, I have to agree with you that liquidation is most likely in the cards. Kodak is going to need a real favorable judge in order to survive into mid 2013.

    Exactly so, and as said above, it's probably not worth getting too worried if it's just a cheapy printer which won't upgrade due to lack of a driver, as with my old Canon. However, Epsom do supply 64-bit drivers to download, and these work fine with both my printer and scanner. The other work-round is, of course, and as I do, and that is to keep a copy of XP or other 32-bit on a partition for use when necessary. (I even still have a working version of Windows 98 on another PC so as to be able to use some older astronomy gear!)

    Please, say it ain't so.

    I am running Windows 7 Pro and was able to get my printer dock to work when I use XP mode.
