I am reasonably happy with version 8, but I do have a problem. I download a lot of pictures, and I can't figure out how to set it so it doesn't scan every item. That takes a long time.  There doesn't seem to be a way to shut it down temporarilty.

Is it possible to temporarily suspend it? I do download a lot - trying to find the balance there, the best of both worlds.
