    I do not have credit cards or payment options, am retired, have no pension and needs catered for by my children, so I could not go further with my search for a solution and quit the website. Thank you for the response.

Rubbish. It means you have the lock slider in the LOCK position and the scan head is unable to move back to starting position.

That normally means that the imaging mechanism has shifted off of the tracks that it moves on when it scans your document. This is usually something that is covered under warranty if you still have one. If not, you may have to pay to get it repaired or replaced. This is not something that is easily fixed if you aren't familiar with scanner components.

Where can I find TWAIN driver for a Canon CanoScan N670U for Win-XP


You can find the winows XP drivers here for your scanner:
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_n670u?selectedName=DriversAndSoftware

Choose Operating System: Windows XP and you will see a list of the drivers.
the second one is the Twain Driver. I recommend installing both the regular driver and the twain driver both are available from the above link.

When i try to scan i get this message: unable to open TWAIN source Please check connection then re-start Toolbox the connections are tight


Driver mismatch - the driver of the scanner has forgotten the location of the TWAIN driver because another software has been using it lately. Follow this

Please can u tell where i can get a WIA driver download


Hi ,
WIA is included in Windows . Go to "Start \ Devices and Printers " and double click on the scanner's icon . I use a third party free twain program working fine in WIA mode : http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10711598.html
You first need to make sure the last valuable original driver/software of your unit is correctly installed , even if it isn't good for W7 or Vista .
Regards .

Canoscan Lide 30 - want to use on laptop running XP Pro


Did you restart your computer after you downloaded your drivers and software? Did you select the correct operating system? Make sure the USB cable is plugged into the computer and the scanner...Open the toolbox and click scan or save and check to see if the scanner makes any noise or lights up...If you are using Windows XP then make sure you have downloaded the "TWAIN" driver and the "WIA" driver (two seperate downloads)

Twain drivers


The problem was with the scanner,it was not twain compliant

So the 2 ways left with me was :

1.Download twain drivers for my scanner and install it.

2.Use wia32.dll

I chose second option as i didnt found any twain driver for my scanner.

Hope this can help any one.

CanoScan 4400f


uninstall all drivers and software that cam with the scanner, and then try installing the software again before connection the scanner... this is a problem when there are two different twain drivers, look for C:\Windows\twain_32\CNQ4803(2) see if there is a driver in there.
