    Just tried to scan stuff today, and doesn't work.

    was working fine, then I got the same message, nothing I do seems to help

    Scenner is Canon Lide 500F. Message is: "Release lock switch
    Detach I/F cable & reconnect
    Scanner Driver will be closed"

    After typing OK, the following message appears:
    "Unable to open Twain source
    Check connection
    then restart Toolbox"

    I've repeatedly checked the lock switch and connection. I downloaded a new driver. I can hear the start of scanning but it stops and sends the above messages.
