Thanks to others, this, I think is the answer (though haven't tried it yet)

Use the 2000 Drivers for the primax scanners
http://www.primax.nl/drivers/colorado_usb_36bit/win2000/pismusbeng.exe

Apparently the scanner works but the buttons won't. That'll do for me


: : I've emailed regarding availability of new driver IBM but had no answer - it seems they don't make or market scanners any more. But has anyone tried using the old driver with XP? It gives all kinds of warnings about instability etc., which is a put off, but I'd like to know if anyone has been brave enough to see what happens.
: : IM IN DEEP SH..T SAME PROBLEM AND IBM GAVE SAME ANSWER OLD SCANNER AND NO SUPPORT (I BOUGHT IT IN 2000)CAN U BELIEVE IT HELP ME IF U CAN!!!: See post:
