    Hi, everybody..! I have a Mirage II A3 scanner that was working fine till I save it in a closet a few years ago. Now I need it again, but I don´t have the PC I used to have with ISA port...
    I finally found a brand new PCI card I had in another Umax A4 scanner, so I connected it to the PCI slot in my actual PC (Windows XP). And I cannot connect the scanner... I installed the VsistaScan software correctly, but in Test mode, it gives me a Link failure. Besides, the scanner does its setup when powered on, the lamp goes from right to left, stays there a few seconds and return to its original position. But the UTA and READY lamps keep blinking... (the User manual says the READY lamp should go steady...)
    I found this page: https://ask.adaptec.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1869/~/scanner-test-link-failures-with-umax-scanner, that explains this can be fixed upgrading the software, but the link does no longer exist...
    Could you please give me your opinion on this..? It´s really important I can do this. I have a huge job to do but it doesn´t work... I´l be waiting for your answer. THANKS!!

    Thanks for the tip..! But I already had Vuescan... I continued to try to connect the scan and figured out that he problem begins way before the relationship between the scanner and Windows XP...
    The problem SEEMS TO BE that the scanner is not reaching a succesfull startup. As I mentioned before, "the scanner does its setup when powered on, the lamp goes from right to left, stays there a few seconds and return to its original position. But the UTA and READY lamps keep blinking... (the User manual says the READY lamp should go steady...)". I think that might be the actual problem... Any ideas..?
