I just got a used HP 6200.  I'm using Nuance (PDF reader) to scan my papers to pdf format.  

I've included a screenshot.  I just want to make sure I choose the right one.   I have an IBM T42 with XP Pro, if this makes any difference.

Twain is a standard interface that allows lots of software to talk to lots of scanners

Say 'yes' to twain

The scanner communicated with the printer before.  Now it won't, after I chose WIA Twain, or whatever.  It keeps giving me the msg shown below.   Do I need to download some updated software. I installed everything off the original disc.  What's infuriating is that it keeps coming up, no matter if I hit "ok" 100 times.
