I have a umax powerlook 1000 with large transparency adaptor. It previously worked on my win 2000 system but i had to upgrade to win7. I tried changing the compatibility tab to win 2000 and loaded the magaiscan 4.7 which runs but the computer simply can't find the scanner.lHelp

Bad news.

According to Umax's download page, there is no software or drivers available for your scanner under Windows 7. Without a driver, there's not much of a chance of getting the scanner working.

wow, I once had a Umax scanner. I even had a Umax macintosh clone. They were great. I feel your pain on losing a friend :(
