Hi Jackie.
If you don't need to enhance the images, you could always use the 
windows fax and scan software built in to windows itself to scan the 
pictures. it works with any scanner. Arcsoft photo studio may also be an 
option if they're still making it but again it's more for printing off 
the snaps.
