Help with UMAX USB combo Tags: Scanners Umax USB Peripherals Last response: March 11, 2001 4:54 AM in Computer Peripherals Share Anonymous March 10, 2001 12:15:26 AM I've been talked into helping a friend fix a problem with her scanner, a UMAX Astra 2000U. It used to work, but was problematic. Now it would appear that the USB ports in her 200 MHz Pentium are fried. Apparently, they have a chipset (Intel 82371SB <A HREF="http://www.umax.com/support/knowledge/solutionsSC.cfm?d..." target="_new">http://www.umax.com/support/knowledge/solutionsSC.cfm?d...;/A> which will not support high draw devices like a scanner. I'm looking at a D-Link DSB-500 <A HREF="http://shop3.outpost.com/product/65915" target="_new">http://shop3.outpost.com/product/65915</A> but I'm concerned that it can support the draw. It supports 500mA but I can't find info on how much draw the scanner needs. Any help? More about : umax usb combo Bubba March 11, 2001 4:54:58 AM What operating system? If she is using WinMe, it probably will never work unless UMax releases new drivers. There are a lot of USB devices that will not work with WinMe. If it is not WinMe, then any USB expansion card (like the one you linked to) should work. If not, just take the card back. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
