"Touse with a pc upgraded from Windows 98 to XP, use the 'custom' install and take only the twain driver, THEN use the XP patch file '2xxxupdater' to get full functions of original vs 3.0, including 'power saver' to allow the scanner bulb to go off after periods of non-use... otherwise, if you use standard install of 3.55, power saver doesn't seem to be available."

"I would have to think that the people who did not get this driver to work for them didn't have a Astra 1220 usb model, or they didn't download the updater exe file to this driver. Although there are always exceptions when it comes to computers. I loaded this program onto my desktop closed my internet connection and then ran the file. Then I rebooted. For some reason th

When you get to the download page, the page is in both German and English (at the bottom of the page).&

"Brilliant! I thought I'd lost the 1220U interface for good and would have to make do with the Windows XP weak substitute. Even Umax told me I'd have to buy a new scanner.
