Here's the best workaround I've found to far to make my V300 work in Win 98:
Install Scanwizard v2.47 if it's not done already, then boot the computer
with the scanner switched OFF.
Under Win 98, turn on the scanner, wait until the green light steadies and
then run the Dynascan tool which the Scanwizard will have installed. This
takes 10-15 secs and installs the scanner into the Windows device list.
That's it - the scanner should then work. I can't guarantee it's a foolproof
Hope this helps. If anyone has any more permanent solutions, please
