Additional Notes

Wow...great .inf file from the UMAX german site.

XP should detect your parallel port scanner as a 610P. Fine. Then update the 610P driver with umax.inf in the .zip file. Install your scanning software(I used VistaScan 3.53 for parallel port scanners) and away you go.

"Windows 2000 had support for 610P. I had that on a dual boot PC. Upgrated Me partition to XP, Installed VistaScan, then used this UMAX.INF file to make it recognise the scanner. For each file it could not find, I did a search of the 2K partition, and entered the path in the dialog. (pasted from file properties dialog)."
