After successful installation and use, the scanner suddenly aborted. Messages received:
Cannot find UMAX Scanner. On testing:
Scanner Access failure.
Scanner link failed.
Error opening data source.
I have tried to reinstal programme - no success.
Can anyone please advise - I am a new boy to the computer game. Jalan.
