    I have a new computer with Windows XP and now I can't scan with my UMAX Astra Scanner version 3.75.000. I would appreciate a scanner driver that will work.

    My 3400 was working on XP but not on the Windows Vista PC I just got. No reply from the email I sent UMAX support. I guess they are not interested in their 3400 customer's needs.

    Windows Vista in my new PC does not let me connect to the scanner. The scanner test also fails. It gives an error saying some file is missing.

    Like some of the other users i was excited to buy a new computer, but very dissapointed to learn that the new windows vista, isn't compatibale with my computer. If i dont find a solution, basically my scanner will be useless.

Need driver for windows 7 for Umax Astra 3400 flat bed scanner

Sorry, the manufacturer has not released a driver for either Vista or Windows 7. You can try other Umax Astra drivers and see if one of them will work.

I have ASTRA 3400 scanner, will it work with Windows 7 home premium?

UMax (the manufacturer) noted that there are no drivers for this scanner to work with Vista or Windows 7- however you may be able to get the scanner to work if Windows 7 has a built in driver- likelihood is not very good however.

Want to install umax astra 3400, using windows vista, won't recognize, what do I need to do?

There's only one way I've found to run this scanner on a computer with Vista, but its cheating since you really don't use Vista. Look at Knoppix 6.2 ( It has a scanner app (Xsane) that will run the Astra 3400 (using Plustek USB driver). The catch is you have to boot from the Knoppix CD (or DVD) which lets you run LINUX in your RAM, but won't mess with Vista on the hard drive. Save your scanned work to USB flash memory when done, then boot back to Vista and do whatever with those saved files. You have the option of various file types and even multipage PDFs.
