I think you may have a problem, I went to UMax's web site and they have drivers for Vista but not Windows 7. But we can try something that may work for you since Vista is the previous version before Windows 7. If this doesnt work I suggest you contact Umax and ask for a driver from their technical support or even ask them if they have a beta driver for your scanner.

OK here is what I need you to do. First disconnect the cable from your scanner to your computer. Then go to Umax's website (the link is below) click on it or copy and paste it into your web browser address bar.

http://www.umax.com/support/knowledge/specifications.jsp?model=Astra+2200

Once your there your only option for a driver will be for vista down load it and install it on the computer. It may say that it is not digitally signed do you want to install it any way? Just say yes. Once its installed then plug your scanner in to your computer, "Your scanner must be powered on like you were going to use it". When you plug it in you may get a pop up window saying a new device or driver is being installed, just let it complete what it has to do. Then reboot your computer (restart) and when you computer comes back up try and scan see if it scans better for you. If it does your ok, if it doesnt then contact Umax's support and ask for the driver.

I hope this helps you out if it does then leave me a YES that I did indeed help you. Thank you

Have you downloaded the latest scanner drivers? Windows 7 requires latest drivers for such scanners.

Also you shoudl try the Windows XP mode in Windows 7 for such USB scanners. Here's a page in UMAX'w website that gives you more info.

UMAX ASTRA 4100/4600 DRIVER FOR VISTA / WINDOWS 7


Hi,

I don't know about Windows 7, but I'm using my Astra 4600 on Windows Vista.

Umax said on its website that the Astra series of scanners are not supported for Windows Vista/7. I suppose this is to get us to buy new scanners...

I searched all around the internet for my driver, but couldn't get one. Finally I tried one more time using the CD that came with my scanner. Of course it doesn't work if you run Setup.exe from the CD --- it will just tell you that the OS is not supported. So I went to Device Manager and deleted the scanner under the "unknown USB device" section, and unplugged the scanner.

When I replugged the scanner, I let Vista install the driver automatically. Of course it couldn't, as Microsoft doesn't support it either. Then the install wizard asked me to put in the CD that came with the scanner. And that did the job! Vista was able to ignore the fact that the driver wasn't written specifically for Vista, and the scanner is working!

I hope you have the same luck with yours.

Happy new year.
