you will either need a computer with your scanner, or buy a scanner with the capability to write directly to a memory card without a computer if they make such things wich i doubt anyone would have any inclinatoin to do.
or just buy a digital camera.<< this is your best bet.

unless you are a hardware engineer of some sort that can sodder up your own device, you will not be able to take a regular scanner and force it to write to a memory stick.


diy, hardware, scanner
