My scanner doesn't scan negative
" I can only select platen as the sourc. the film setting has vanished" - I had the same problem. Unplugged the USB cable from a shared usb 2.0 hub and plugged into an old USB 1.1 dedicated port and it started working. No ideas why (perhaps in the hub it couldn't detect the scanner model correctly)

Canon Canoscan D1259U2F dont have any driver for Windows 7 64-bit
the only successful method I found for using CanoScan D1250U2F in 64 bit Windows 7 (I guess the same would be for 64 bit Vista) is to use Windows XP Mode in Virtual PC (attach the scanner as USB device and that's it - works perfectly)
I had a problem with Windows 7 detecting the device as CanoScan (needed for Windows XP Mode to detect is as USB device and allow attach) - the solution was to unplug the scanner, plug it in and CANCEL Windows 7 hardware detection process before it finishes - this leaves it as "CanoScan" device (auto-detect will leave it as "Unrecognized device" and with that unusable/un-attachable in Windows XP Mode)
latest versions of Windows XP Mode will make your hard drives accessible as network locations (no need for external media)

I had a Compac 2001
Welcome to Fixya. Unfortunately it is impossible to use the CanoScan D1250U2F to windows 7 because it is not compatible. Canon stated that the scanner is not compatible with the said Operating System. Please check the link below about the Windows 7 Compatibility.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I'm getting 2 error messages
I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.
This is a common problem with all Canon scanners. If you do a lot of scanning or leave your computer on all the time and never shut it off. What is happening is the memory fills up with all of the images and it needs to be cleaned out. If you reboot (restart) your computer it will clean out the memory and your problem will go away. I always recommend that if your going to be scanning a lot then do it off a fresh reboot and you should be able to your hearts content.
I hope this helps you out.

When I try to
You may need to re-install the drivers for the scanner. Even though it is plugged in, if the computer doesn't recognise it then it won't scan. You can get the drivers here.
Just choose your operating system and it will take you to the appropriate drivers. I see there is also toolbox software for this scanner located on the same downloads page.
