    I tried everything you suggested - My last idea is to install a new USB-2 CARD as the on-board one may be a low end system that cannot do the job...

The LATEST downloadt is 3.75 @ $15.00/copy, I purchased it. I unplugged the scanner many times, rebooted the same number. I suspect, could be wrong, that my on-board OSB-2 is a low end product and will not handle the amp draw - so will install a better OSB-2, but is that the answer? I am pulling at straws here...

Go to hp and download the latest drivers, my other suggestion would be to unplug the the scanner and then plug it in a few minutes later see if the computer discovers it, have you rebooted?

Umax astra 1200s with windows XP

This particular scanner is a nightmare to get working with XP

When it does work it is also prone to random errors.

On the UMAX australia site I found the information I needed to make it actually waok at all.

Below is part of a very old email that I went through with Umax maybe that will help you ?

It is quite an old scanner though.

Sorted out by steps as follows. Disconnect scanner usb lead from computer / hub 1. remove ALL umax software as issued on the cd and any upgrades 2. shut down restart 3. run norton (not the one button but the win doctor) to clean up any loose ends (important but dont know why ? does not work unless this has been done ??) 4. shut down restart. DO NOT connect scanner 5. Install software from original cd 6. do any umax software upgrades (ALSO IMPORTANT ) 7. shut down 8. plug scanner back in. 9. power everything back up 10. do new hardware wizard thing 11 swap driver to correct one as per instructions on your site somwhere ? all working I just did the norton one button on a second machine and it did not work so did all steps again but used norton win doctor as per step 3 and all good it worked a treat on two machine so it appears repeatable.

Astra 2200 scanner won't run with Windows XP?

I have a Umax astra 2200 scanner that I was running on a Windows 98 machine and I was very happy with it. Unfortunately I now own a Dell Dimension E310 with Windows XP and I cannot get the scanner to install/operate properly. Is appears from the specs that the scanner is not compatable with Windows XP, but is there any software upgrade I can download so that I continue to use this scanner with XP?

UMAX Astra 1220P Scanner worcks not with ( or in) Windows XP Home Edition . I need a driver for umax astra 1220p ( work under xp o/s). Thanks for all help.

I believe that the HP 3200C is a very similar scanner, and the
HP parallel driver will work, try the following links:

I think you will find that the old UMAX scanner is extremely
slow over the parallel port, and the image quality is nowhere
nearly as good as modern USB-2 scanners.

USB-2 is orders of magnitude faster than the parallel port,
and a really good scanner costs around $60 these days.

You may want to try the Canon LiDE 80: It scans pictures
and film, it's good, it's fast, it's dirt cheap and I love it.
