I have an Acer340p scanner which I was having trouble with in XP but this is how I got it working.

I downloaded the Mirascan342p.zip file from:

http://www.acercm-eu.com/ServiceAndSupport/Drivers/drivers.cfm?product=135#dl

and then expanded it into a folder on the c: drive. Then I right clicked the setup.exe file in the MiraScan342P folder and chose properties. On the compatibility tab, I ticked the box labelled "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" , and then chose Windows 2000 from the drop down list.

Then I went to Control Panel > Printers and other Hardware > Scanners and Cameras, and then chose "Add an imaging device" from the side bar of that window.

When it asks you for the model of the scanner, click the "have disk" button and point it to the same MiraScan342P folder that the setup.exe file was in and click OK. The name "colour flatbed scanner" should appear on its own in the next window. Make sure it's highlighted and click next a few times and then finish.

I got a warning from XP saying that it was an unsigned driver file but I just clicked to "use it anyway" and then rebooted for good measure.

Much to my surprise it now works perfectly! Good luck.
