INSTALL AN UMAX ASTRA 1220P TO AN USB PORT ON A LAPTOP USING XP

I try to install the driver of an UMAX 1220p (parallel port) to an USB port of a laptop, but I can't make it.

Can some one help me out on this issue. The problem here is the driver and the port, and the scanner is the one designed to work with a parallel port.

I bought an USB to parallel cable and connect the scanner to the USB port of my new laptop that does not have parallel port any more.

The 1220P (P = Parallel) does not have a USB port and Windows XP does not support it.

Vistascan 3.1


I tried to resurrect my Astra 1220P scanner to work with my WinXP Home machine. I began by calling UMAX, they told me I needed XP drivers and suggested that I purchase the VistaScan 3.55 driver CD for $18.00. They also told me to get a Parallel to USB Adapter Cable, which I purchased from Radio Shack. When the CD arrived, I went to work installing the cable & loading the drivers to no avail. The scanner does not appear in the Device Manager list under image devices or other devices, In fact, it is not anywhere in the list.
Of course the scanner does not work. I called them back and asked for assistance, they told me they could not guarantee operation of the unit using a Parallel to USB Adapter Cable...and sorry, we cannot refund the cost of the driver CD. Isn't that special - I was so looking forward to scanning some slides and film because I had previously purchased a Transparency Adapter.
Now I begin my search for a new scanner that will work with transparencies.
Anyone have a suggestion?

Scanner link failure


This scanner requires a "Parallel or Centronics" cable and if you have a newer computer, you may only have USB connections. A "USB to CENTRONICS" cable may do the trick, but I'm not sure. Check on the web for one.

My scanner is hpscanjet 3200c & my pc consederit umax astra 1220p


HP OEMed the ScanJet 3200C from UMAX. It's a Astra 1220P UMAX does not support this scanner anymore also HP does not but if you look around you will find file sj648en.exe from HP. This might work on your system, it's for upto Win XP.  I have been trying to get a USB to parallel to work with this scanner, so far so bad many many hours.

UMAX Astra 1220P Scanner worcks not with ( or in) Windows XP Home Edition pecnikfranc@yahoo.com . 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:

http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/hp-3200c.html
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=sj-1436-3&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN


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.
