    Can't get your Umax 2000U to work with Windows 2000?

    Go to the asia pacific umax website for free update.
    http://www.umax.net/
    or specifically
    http://www.umax.net/download/show_cat1.asp?majcidx=4&mincidx=13
    get the disks for vista scan 3.55u

    Unzip all the disks, and run VSSETUP.EXE in disk 1
    With the scanner plugged in, reboot

    If it doesn't work at first, don't worry.

    Here is the trick.
    Reboot
    Double click the unplug eject hardware icon (green arrow bottom right)
    Choose the scanner and click properties
    Click the driver tab and update driver
    Next, change the radio button to "display a list..", and ok
    Click "have disk"
    browse to where you extracted disk 6 likely

    "c:/VSTASCAN/disk6/"

    and look in folder U12x0
    choose 1220u.inf and ok.

    If it asks for PV8630.sys, it is in that same folder
    c:/VSTASCAN/disk6/u12x0

    For xp, run the xp updater (haven't tried it myself though)

    This worked for me, hope it works for you!
