I have an old Mustak Scanmagic USB scanner, I only want to use it for basic copying no fancy stuff. It works fine on Win2000 but not with XP, needs a different driver it seems which is not on the installation CD. Have searched the web thinking this would be easy enough but no, so far I have tried 4 with the following results. 1. Driver does not work (user ratings on the site 20% and useless but I thought I might get lucky)
2. Another one that requires me to bugger around with the registry but is unclear as to what to do or at what point to do it.
3. One that comes in a zip file and is impossible to install.
4. One direct from Mustek that requires me to shut down antivirus and firewall before downloading, not a good idea in my opinion but when I did try download site vanished from screen.
Surely things don`t have to be this difficult, can anyone give me a simple solution please.
