    Umax 2100U

    I recently converted to Win2000, and have not been able to get this scanner working. It is a USB device and other USB devices (printer) is working. The cheapscates at Umax want to charge for a CD, but I found a site in the UK that has the drivers (supposedly). When it is run it acts like every thing is OK, but when I try the scanner I get a "scanner link failure" message, which sound like a USB problem. I swithced cables, and my printer works with either.

    When I use device manager to update the file it keeps asking for a fie 1220.inf which I can find on my original CD and in Windowssystem32. Tried them both to no avail>

    Anybody help me?

    Maybe try the UK site for the driver VistaScan 355u
    Install it under an account that has administrative rights.

    Thanks for the response.
    That is what I did do.
    I also tried switching the USB ports as sugested in their FAQs, and ran the USB test.

    Still NG! any other thoughts?

    You are on a standalone 2000 machine? Try logging in as local administrator and see if that makes any difference? Also another link: http://www.scanner-drivers.com/drivers/60/60296.htm

    Your new reference will bring up the same file as I listed above.

    OK try this:
    Contol panel | system | hardware | Device Manager Go to Imaging devices - and update driver. Select 'Install from a specific location' - and "I will choose the driver to install' - Now you should have the choice of the Microsoft driver or the Umax driver - select the Umax and browse to the location where you have downloaded the driver from Umax.
