I've got a 10 year old Mustek 600 II CD scanner which I'm trying to install on my Win XP machine. However this (http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/driv_scanr/english/600iicd.html) page only supplies NT drivers - I tried it but it doesn't install. Any ideas please?

Thx.

My last scanner had no Win2K drivers. But I found that the Win NT4 drivers basically worked..

:)Thanks.

It's not a USB machine - it uses a parallel port. Do you think it'd still work?

you could just punch your scanners name into a google search with drivers and see what comes up

Found the following on several sites - may or may not work.

Make a System Restore Point FIRST before doing anything in case it all turns to custard.


1 Install old windows NT driver (Mustek V2.0)

2 Locate and note the name of the driver sys file located in c:\windows\system32\drivers
(can be either a4sii300.dll or ab306p.sys)

3 Instal the scaner driver for UMAX 610P scaner included in XP CD

4 Start REGEDIT and search for umaxpcls.sys and replace this entry with the driver identified in step 2.

5 Restart Windows

I've got the drivers for a Mustek 1200B Plus scanner if anyone needs or wants it (also now very hard to find). Scanner still works just fine - ancient though it is. I look at it bleakly from time to time, but haven't needed to replace it yet! (Only works through Photoshop CS2, doesn't work through CS3 :().
