Thread: UMAX Astra 1220s scanner driver with xp

  1. #1

    so i inherited a umax astra 1220s scanner,
    and ive always wanted a scanner,
    i dont know why...........
    but anyway,
    i have some drawings of teachers finding their knife/toaster related deaths that i would like to scan,

    but the problem is that windows xp does nothing when i connect the scanner,
    im assuming i need the drivers,
    but i have no idea where to get it,
    i downloaded one driver but i had an error (everything seems to be an error these days with windows, i tried to put 6 computer games on it, "catastrophic failure, unknown error", "out of memory", "unable to install, see your operating system manufacturer", just makes me sick.


    does anyone have any sites i could get this driver,
    i may need multiple sources in case god forbid i get an error......(bsod seems to be the favorite these days.......thank god for ubuntu)

    If your scanner has a parallel interface you may as well forget it for XP connectivity, AFAIK they never got the parallel interface working properly, even on W2K.

    However, I assume the "S" suffix means serial or SCSI connection.

    In either case, the interface should not have changed between W2K and XP, follow the instructions supplied for W2K.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
