Desperately looking for driver

  cazkenton2003 20:45 05 Apr 2004

Hi all.

I have a Primax Colorado Direct 9600 scanner in a parallel port.It worked just great under Win98se and have upgraded to Win XP (soon to be Pro).
Where,oh where can I find the drivers for it?.Have been to most driver sites on the net but they just won't work with my scanner and the Primax site doesn't issue drivers for XP.They said to use the drivers for 2000,installed but don't work!!

Help me before I go out of my mind!

Just adding to my postings (same scanner - downloaded 2000 driver but haven't tried it yet).

Still no joy!

I have noticed (also with win98se) that the scanner doesn't show up in the device manager,but I have the taskbar icon but only 2 options available.I don't have the TWAIN options available either,it just still comes up with the error reports.
Was reading through some forums earlier on and it seems possible to do it with changing the HKEY registry but looks a tad too complicated for a novice like myself!
