I bought one a couple of years ago. After plenty of hit-miss after trying to get it to work on my fresh XP installations, I have a solution. Installing it the normal way simply doesn't work.
First, go to 'start', 'control panel' then 'system'. Click the 'hardware tab' then press 'device manager'. You'll see a list of hardware.
If your scanner is already plugged in, find it (it could be listed under 'imaging' or under 'other devices'. You should see a yellow exclamation point indicating it's there but not working.
If you go to 'control panel... system' first, and then plug in your scanner, it will pop up automatically.
Now, right click on it, select 'update driver'. A window pops up. Insert the CD, then select 'have disk' and install normally.
Installing the remaining software is optional (acrobat 4.05 and so on)
I've used the "Panel" to scan my pics. Working like a charm.

I can tell you of a similar problem/situation with an HP scanner,.
Having tried every method/procedure/trick...nothing worked! Since I've been doing this type of troubleshooting for the past 10+ years, I knew the scanner was operational...but, NOT getting the right commands to work!. With reading & re-reading
HP's site I reviewed some of their FAQ's and forums. Then I found information (still on HP site) regarding issues- unresolved problems-workarounds. I also found that the software (drivers) cd ,DRIVERS! are "incompatable" with Windows Imaging software which is loaded automatically with windows! You have to delete the windows drivers AND imaging program and edit your registry
then reload HP's drivers(pain in the #%$) wasn't worth all the
trouble. Picked up a $9.00 Epson scanner @ Goodwill that is
so easy-fast-sharp,... drivers load without problems. Donated the
Scan RAT and deducted for taxes! Chances are GOOD that the
Mustek software is doing the same. Delete the Mustek software
and see if Windows doesn't recognise and load it's own drivers!

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.
Well, Printer Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook. You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector). The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.
Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.
Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.
I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further assistance.
