Here at Worst Tech we have reported lots of bugs, especially those of Windows 7. Today I got yet another bug in Windows 7. This bug is more concerned with the scanning of multiple photos through the HP Solution Center for a Photosmart 3200 series. This bug is found in Windows 7 64-bit version.
The bug states that if you create HP scanning shortcut and scan multiple photos to separate files. The software recognizes that there are multiple photos on the scanner and it selects photos separately for the photos. Whenever you click “Finish” and the program proceeds to scan the photos one at a time. This isn’t the actual problem.
The problem is that when multiple photos are scanned it only shows one photo is the folder, and the size of the scanned photo is also larger than expected. For example the size of the output image is round about 20MB in uncompressed TIF format at 600 PPI using higher bit sampling, but the size of the file is 20MB multiplied by the approximately the number of photos scanned, plus the file is not opening.
One more worst thing is that when the first photo is finished scanning, the program does not close the file handle in order to scan second photo. New file is not created, and instead the data is overwritten to the existing output file.
Indeed this is the biggest flaw in Windows 7, I should conclude that Windows 7 is also not bug free. Microsoft should release a quick patch for this issue, alternates are not fine enough to cope up with problem.
