It looks like your scanner makes it to a file format which Irfranview can not handle. The .max extension can only be handled with Paperport viewer which you can download here
. You can do the following things :
If it previously worked than uninstall Irfanview and re-install it.
Alternavely try to make your output default JPG
you also could try this. Rightclick the picture you are having problems with click Copy. than on an empty space again rightclick and paste. so you have a copy.
After that rightclick again change name into test.jpg and try to open it.
