    Have installed software and hooked the scanner up. The computer recognizes the scanner, but when I try to use it, I get an error message indicating a livk failure of some kind. Does this scanner (Umax Astrs 1220u) work with Windows XP + SP2? If so, which drivers do I have to use with it?

    Thanks

    Need an XP driver - are they available? Do I have to pay or are they downloadable from your site? I cannot find it online.

Pauldonp,
The only stuff at that link is related to the linux OS, which I don't have installed. I'm certainly NOT going to install linux just to be able to use my scanner. I'm very happy with the way my verion of Win XP operates, so either need a fix to be able to use my scanner, or will just change scanners.

If you know where I can locate a driver that will allow me to use my scanner with the Win XP OS, please let me kndisaksen

Is the Pandigital SCN02 Photolink One-Touch Scanner compatible with Windows 8?


Are you using it currentrly? What is your current Operating System? I've been searching and can't see anywhate a windows 8 driver for this scanner.
Bu let me tell you, I'm using currently a Genius ColorPage, originally released for windows 98. Installed windows 2000 driver in compatibility mode for findows XP. There is no driver for Windows XP nor for Windows 7 and coldn't make it work in Windows 7. So I run it on a computer with dual bootWindows XP / Windows 7.
When I need to scan, I simply start up as windows XP. When finished scanning, reboot to windows 7
I Have Windows 7 on a 2 Tb HD SATA and Windows XP on 200 Mb IDE. Is more economical to have a dual boot then buy a new Scanner.
If your scanner won't run on windows 8, install on another HD or a partiton, Windows 7. doual boot Windows 7 / 8 work like a dream.

Can not find win 7 canonscan driver


I am sorry my dear friend but there is no windows 7 driver for Canon CanoScan FB636U Flatbed Scanner. If you really wanted to use your scanner you have to downgrade your operating system. This scanner supports the following operating systems.

Windows XP Windows 2000 Windows 98 Windows ME Windows 98 SE Mac OS X Mac OS 9.x

Is there an updated driver available for my Visioneer OneTouch 9020 scanner that will alow it to work on with my Windows 7 operating system?


Visioneer doesn't support this scanner for any OS past XP. If a generic TWAIN scanner driver doesn't work, the single computer workaround is to use a virtual computer with XP. (If your old computer is still working, you can keep the scanner on that and transfer files on an optical disc (CD-R or DVD-R depending on the old computer's specs) or USB flash drive.)

If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can do run an XP virtual computer for free. Download Virtual PC and XP mode, install XP mode in the Virtual PC program and install the scanner to the virtual computer. To transfer files back to the real computer, you probably will need to save to external media. For other versions, you will need either Virtual PC or another virtualization program and a licensed copy of XP.

I wish that I could be of more help.

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?

If upgrading an existing PC to Windows XP from an earlier versionof Windows, Canon recommends a "clean install" to ensure reliableoperation of drivers. If a clean install is not possible, it isessential that drivers for your existing Canon Hardware are UNINSTALLEDprior to upgrading to Windows XP. After the installation of Windows XP,the drivers for your Canon Hardware can then be re-installed. Canon has released a software utility to uninstall USB and SCSI Scanner drivers for this purpose. Click here to download this utility.It is recommended to consult our Driver Downloads page and use the latest driver for your product. Canon supports several scanner models with Windows XP. Windows XPsupport is offered for Windows XP Home Edition, and Windows XPProfessional.The following older models are not compatible with Windows XPdue to hardware design: IX-3010, IX-4015, IX-4025, CS 300S, FB310,FB61
