I was shocked to learn that our 2006 family and kids Christmas pictures we took at JCPenny have digital rights management (DRM) features that makes it relatively impossible to scan into a visually usable graphics file using a recently purchased scanner.
When I scan them on my HP C3100 I end up with a grainy, very unattractive picture. I was getting all mad at the scanner for sucking until I read the back of the pictures with the following warning: "Kodak Professional Endura Paper - Professional Images Are Copyright Protected - Do Not Copy."
Darn right frustrating! :-(
If there is a DIY hack, please let me know. I'm off to investigate, and I'll keep you posted.
