That's an old scanner. Believe it safe to say you won't get it working in Vista or 7. You "may" get it to work in XP.

✔ Best Answer
If it connects via USB to the computer, you should be able to get it work on Windows 7 by using VueScan. Download and install the trial version first to check whether it works with your scanner: http://www.hamrick.com/

The installer will ask you if a manufacturer's scanner driver is already installed. Obviously you should click "No" to that question.

Vuescan is a full-featured scanning application which is miles better to use than the simple driver software you typically get with a flatbed scanner. For one thing, it can be used fullscreen instead of struggling with a fixed-size window.

To use your scanner you must open Vuescan. It does not install a TWAIN driver for accessing the scanner from within an application.

Thanks. I tried Vuescan but then then discovered that my scanner was one of the few models that it wouldn't support. That was my last chance so reluctantly I will have to scrap the scanner.

Tough luck. Especially when nearly every other Umax model is listed as compatible -- just not yours unfortunately.
