but perhaps a little less sarcasm in your message to Mustek might have been more acceptable. I would certainly not be too happy if I received such a derisory email. Mustek is a very large company and has a good reputation, there's obviously a problem with their European site at the moment however.
A little searching works wonders however, and I suggest you
click here which will take you to the download page for European drivers. Make sure that you download the full package - Generic scanning module, TWAIN driver, and the panel. The drivers work in Windows 98/ME/2000/XP by the way.
Good luck - come back to this thread if you're still having problems.
