I have a UMAX Astra 4450 scanner, and I'm trying to use it with my new Windows 7 computer. I still have the installation disc, but when I installed (I tried from the UMAX site too) no drivers were...

Hi I had the same issue. I just downloaded the evaluation copy of Vuescan, which includes a Windows 7 driver that works with this Scanner (32-bit & 64-bit) When selecting the model of Scanner I chose "Umax Astra 5400", which worked fine with the 4450.
Hope that helps! Ian

Windows XP will not recognise the PF1800 USB scanner.

lease download and expand this ZIP file. The resulting folder contains files that need to be copied to varying directories.

It may well be that you need to make some system folders visible to theWindows Explorer before you can copy said files into them:
Choose "Tools" > "Folder options" > "View" from the Explorer's menu bar. Then please apply:
- hide protected system files: disabled
- show contents of system folders: enabled
- show hidden files and folders: show all
I recommend also, you want to disable "hide known file extensions".
Then please copy:
usbscan.sys > c:windowssystem32drivers
1394scan.inf > c:windowsinf
all other files > c:windowssystem32
Now you are ready to update the driver again:
(1) Windows key + Pause (or: open "System" from the control panel)
(2) Hardware > Device Manager
(3) Imaging device > unknown device > right-clicking > Properties
(4) Driver > Update driver
(5) Don't let Windows choose the device automatically, but choose the appropriate device yourself.
(6) The INF file necessary for the driver is named "1394scan.inf" andis most probably already located in the directory c:windowsinf
Please note: Even when the scanner is connected to USB (instead of firewire / IEEE1394) you need to use this INF file.
8) To complete your driver installation, restart Windows.
Check in the device manager if the scanner can now be detected.

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?

No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

The buttons on the Scanner itself will no longer work.

You should be able to reconfigure the button settings by clicking on the "Settings" button in the CanoScan Toolbox application. Although the default setting is Scan, Copy and eMail, each of the buttons can be configured to do whatever operation you choose.
