: I AM CONSIDERING PURCHASING WINDOWS-XP AND I NEED TO KNOW IF MY SCANNER IS COMPATIBLE. IF IT REQUIRES DRIVER UPGRADE WHERE MIGHT I FIND.

[alex] I guess it is not. I had same problems with Win2000. Here is reply from their tech support:

We are sorry, but UMAX does not support your scanner on Windows 2000.
This lack of support is due to the fact the Windows 2000 is a true
32-bit operating system. Your scanner was engineered and developed at a
time when most computer peripherals, including scanners, were 16-bit
devices. Windows 2000 as an operating system does not support 16-bit
devices. The only way to make your scanner compatible with a 32-bit
operating system would be to replace the hardware inside the scanner
itself. Such a process is more costly than purchasing a newer model
scanner that would already have support for Windows 2000.
