    My decade-old workhorse scanner (Visioneer) gave up the ghost. Doesn't appear that Visioneer sells any Windows XP-compatible scanners anymore. (I should've bought 3 or 4 at about $120 each when I had the chance.)

    Any recommendations for a decent (does not have to be great) XP-compatible scanner?

    Can't you just find an old second hand one ?
    In my country, people just give them (because not compatible with newer os) or sell them less than 10 euros.
    I have an epson 1670, 1200. Perfectly compatible with xp.

    Good one, stonepark. I should have thought of this! I'm gonna do some research for old scanners.
