After much hunting on the web and trying different solutions, with no luck, I decided to try ALTAVISTA and the translate page. I found a Umax Data Systems page, and wait, could it be, Driver Downloads. Go to the FAQ ->Scanner->Troubleshooting->Question 22, and I quote,

"How to use UMAX scanner in the Windows 2000?

UMAX Scanner (with SCSI, or Parallel "except Astra 600P") can work well with Windows 2000. You can get the newer version driver from our download section. UMAX Scanner with USB needs a patch (we will release the driver patch on our download section recently)."

Hmmm, maybe UMAX USA support is full of it. I tried the drivers 3.50S and my scanner works perfectly now (ps make sure no other umax driver exists in the Twain 32 folder in WINNT).

I would like to take the opportunity to offer this solute to UMAX USA and their 'Support',

Sincerely and never to buy UMAX products again,

p.s. My father-in-law has a scanner that is HP and is almost four years old, HP released drivers almost immediatly that works on all PC OS platforms...
