I have the above parrell port scanner with Agfa Scanwise CD 1.02 that was working ok with windows 98. I have upgraded to XP and the scanner does not work. Infact the PC freezes Any suggestions?

According to click here

xp does not support this scanner and they wont be making drivers fot it.

New Scanner is the simple answer.
Scanners have their own processor the controls the scan and tracking motors and image capture device.

The software is on a ROM chip.
Although some manufactuers offered download up grades for the NTFS [2000/XP] system they tended not to be succesful.

As a last resort see if Agfa offer such a service
and/or take a look at the CD and see if it includes 2000 drivers, these is just a chance..........

The parallel port version of the 1212 didn't have XP drivers although the USB version did (the model I have); XP doesn't support parallet port models.

The 1212p without the on/off switch's latest driver (up to Windows 2000) can be found at:

With the switch it's at:
