Did you really apply this procedure for the mustek scan magic 600 usb scanner? Where did you get the driver from? I couldn’t find any Win2k or Win XP compatible driver for this scanner an the mustek home-page.


: : 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.
