: I have been trying unsuccesfully to get the VISTASCAN software (Version 3.54 WM) which came with my ASTRA 1600U to work. I have been to the Umax driver site and have doanloaded the Vistascan "updater" for the 1600U, but nothing happens. The error message reads as follows, windows/vud32.dll. Then XP loads the driver for the 2000u

: In the Control Panel / Scanner & Cameras, it continually keeps loading the driver for model 2000U. I need the Vistascan software to work for the 1600u. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I have had the same problem, but after installing the update, it was possible to at least scan with the scanning software from Scanner & Cameras. This is not an elegant solution, I know, but it works. UMAX's site states that the 1220U model is compatible with MS Paint that comes with WinXP. They say that you should uninstall all UMAX software, empty the recycle bin, reboot, and use MS Paint as the scanner interface. Since the 1220U and 1600U models are almost identical, it might work, though I have not tried it.

Good Luck.
