Here's what I did:

In the Device Manager -> Universal serial bus controllers ->USB Root Hub ->properties :On the power tab I could see the HP Scanjet 3300c's power required 48 mA
When I tried to install the drivers from the CD I got an error message stating that the program could'nt open the USB port.
The driver I downloaded from the HP also resulted in an error

The trick that worked for me is I simply deleted the 'USB Root Hub' in the Device Manager and restarted WinME.
Windows found the 'USB Root Hub' AND the Scanjet, installed the software instantly and the scanner works like it did in Win98. :-)
