Re: need installion rom and driver that are necessary

I cannot send you a CD -- I do not have one but I can show you where on the internet you can download the drivers and manuals for this machine. According to Epson's Vista support page even if I had a CD you would still need to download the Vista drivers. (They apparently were released after the CD)

In order to read the manuals you will need Adobe Reader it is free click the Get Adobe Reader button at this link.

Your manuals and software are available here

Epson does not seem to have instructions on how to install the downloaded software.Try installing this the first two in the order they are in the list they are the only ones applicable to windows Vista. (assure you only install downloads for VISTA.

Error in scanner. Turn off scanner and follow instructions in manual.Scanner driver will be closed. (code:201) Unable to open TWATN source Please check connection Then re-start Toolbox.

This error can be caused by many different issues. Try the following resolutions in order until your issue is fixed-

1. You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.

2. unistall and re-install drivers-
1. Place the CanoScan Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
2. When the CanoScan Setup Utility menu appears, click the option to 'Uninstall the Software' and then follow the prompts.

3. Disable Third-party Software
Software applications that are active during installation can cause errors, installation difficulties and even abort the installation.*1 Close all running applications, including anti-virus programs, before installing Canon Software. You can also prevent these applications from starting through 'System Configuration Utility' (also referred to as 'msconfig') in Windows 98/Me, Windows XP and Windows Vista.

If your computer is part of an office network: Network permissions, security software, etc. may be interfering with proper communication. Please contact your System or Network Administrator before attempting to disable software on your system.

a. See your applications' documentation for instructions on how to close it.

b. If you are unable to locate the documentation or the application appears to be running after it is closed, disable the startup items in the Windows 'System Configuration Utility'.

c. If disabling startup items in 'msconfig' does not correct the issue, disable non-Microsoft related services in 'Services' tab of 'System Configuration Utility' window.

d. Attempt to install the Canon software (drivers). If the drivers were already installed, uninstall them (keep the third-party software disabled) and then reinstall the drivers.

e. After installation is complete, set 'msconfig' back to 'Normal Startup'.

Umax Astra 2200 scanner needing to run in Vista

Hi, The Umax Support/Download ( do not have any patch/updated drivers for your scanner compatible with Vista. If the only issue that you would downgrade your operating system back to XP is because of the canner, it may not be necessary. It is possible to dual both allowing you a choice of Vista or XP. This is better explained at ( This way you will retain the use of the new features of Vista in your new computer and yet when necessary make use of your previous devices that will only run in XP. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
