    Powerbook G4 with this "old" Umax Scanner 2200. Doesn't work!

    May 31, 2008I had my MacIntosh Operating System updated to 10.3.9.  Prior to the OS X update, my Umax Astra 2200 Flatbed Scanner worked fine.  However, it is not functioning now. I need an updated Vista scanner driver.  Help.

    same as above problem

    I have the same problem as the others. There is absolutely no reason why the driver for UMAX 2200 can not be upgraded. The fact that the OS for Macintosh has changed should have nothing to do with it. Else why would MS Word, etc. still work going from OS 9 to OS X. I think UMAX should accommodate us or is this their "stimulus" package?

The Umav Astra 2200 WILL NOT WORK on OS-X. Their Tech Support Dept writes: "We thank you for contacting UMAX Customer Care.

UMAX does not have a driver for mac OS X.
Since the scanner has been out for almost ten years, UMAX will not have an
updated driver for Astra 2200 to support OS X.

However, you can check a third party scanning software at www.silverfast or

My Personal advice is to buy a new scanner instead of buying a third party
scanning software. It will be easier in the future.

I apologize for the inconvenience."

Umax astra 2200 upgrade for lion

Funny I was trying to get another scanner running in Lion and discovered that doing this worked with Lion and my Umax 2200. Go here and download and install these 5 packages. Now I was only able to get the scanner to work properly with the 600dpi setting. Other settings lower scanned the image in wavy. Don't forget to restart afterward and go to About this Mac and make sure that the USB connection sees the scanner. Once you do that. Sane Scan will show up in Printer/Scanner preference. Running Lion on a 3.2 quad core 1.1 MacProTower
