A couple of years ago I received an Epson V500 as a gift and haven't used it. I now have time to scan a couple hundred slides and a lot of black&white and color photos. My objective is to get the slides and photos into digital format on external hard drives. From there I plan to create DVDs for my kids. I may want to print some of the slides, and I doubt if the prints would be larger than 8 x 10. I do not plan to scan any negatives.

I've searched the forum and haven't seen any posts indicating that anyone uses additional scanner software with the V500 other than DigitalICE and what comes with the V500. Is this true? I have a feeling the answer will be No, but I want to check to be certain. Thanks in advance for your help.
