: who can help me to find a driver for the scanmagic 600 usb for windows xp

U can use the Win 2000 drivers but it requires a registry hack.

This is a REGISTRY HACK not a new driver. The Windows 2000 drivers WILL WORK in Windows XP if you get into the registry key HKEY_Local_Machine - Software - Microsoft - Windows NT - Current Version and change "Microsoft Windows XP" to "Microsoft Windows 2000". Then install the Windows 2000 drivers.

Don't let the computer reboot... cancel the reboot,

Then change the registry key back to "Microsoft Windows XP" then reboot. Go into device manager, enable the USB device and reinstall the drivers. It will work, I just did it after leaving my scanner dead for 2 weeks.

Microsoft Windows XP/2000 simple but be careful.
