After my camera bit the dust, I was distraught for several days....not being able to afford another at this time and having spent alot for the dead one but 6 months ago! Anyway, always the problem solver, I came up with a way to take pics with my scanner! Well, today, EUREKA I came up another solution........I had this small camera I purchased several years ago to take pics for items I was selling on ebay. Couldn't get it to work the other day either, BUT TODAY IT CAME BACK TO LIFE! Not only that, I FOUND the CD that came with it. I am the kind of person that can't find the receipt when I first arrive home from the store....forget 3 or 4 years earlier. Anyway, I had my husband hold up the cones to take a total pic of all of them. This camera is activated by the mouse so you can't get away from the computer in order to make it work!
