yet another scanner

By downon ·
I have a win2000 pro box
a umax Astra 2000p

Can this scanner work w/ this OS?

what I did already:

I went to the umax.com site & they informed this scanner doesnt work with parallel

I went to drivers.com & downloaded some drivers but win2000 doesnt like to use them

any ideas?

Ok, this scanner WORKS ON PARRALLEL ports....

Hence the P after the 2000...

It does not work with parrallel PRINTERS hooked into it or daisy chained.

If you have a parrallel printer, buy a 2nd LPT card for it.

Now... You need VistaScan 3.55. You cano only get that by paying 10 dollars off of their site or luckily finding it on the web. It will work. Been there, done that.
