Topic: Acrobat 6.0 Scanner Compatibility

I have been an avid user of Acrobat 5.0 and it has been very reliable. I recently got a new notebook computer HP nc6000 and it came with Acrobat 6.0 installed. I have an HP ScanJet 3500C scanner. Acrobat 6.0 always reports an error accessing the scanner and halts the process. If I access the scanner through the HP Photo Imaging interface it works fine so I know that the scanner is fine. This is the standard, not professional, version of Acrobat 6.0. I tried this on another computer with the same scanner and had the same results. I also tried it with a ScanJet 4300C with the same results.
Is a problem with the standard version and I have to purchase the professional version?
This is very frustrating as I have to scan servcie documents every day to send out to our depots and have been crippled by this.

Any thoughts???

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
