There is a compatibility issue between the twain drivers & XP.
Follow the link below & download the XP Tool.


Disconnect the scanner from the computer & insert the driver CD. If the CD autoruns, cancel it. If you don't have the CD, download the win2000 driver from the same link.
Double click on the XP tool & follow the instructions on screen.

NB I know the link is for Mustek scanners, but thats OK, it will still work
