Canoscan N676U Flatbed scanner wont work with Photoshop CS3

My Canoscan N676U scanner worked fine with Photoshop CS2 but when I upgraded to CS3 a message said Photoshop CS3 does not support the platform. In System Help I found the message: Plug-ins that failed to load:ScanGear CS 7.0.1X  NO VERSION -  - from the file “/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/ScanGear CS 7.0X”
Installed TWAIN devices: NONEHow do I get it going again. I tried to go back to CS2 but it now doesn't work there either.I tried to reload the drivers for Canoscan N676U. I'm not sure I did it correctly.Advice and assistance please!

    I tried the download to get my Canoscan D676U working as you suggested but my computer would not accept the download. Where to now? I'm using iMac Mac OSX 10.4.11

    Fine, but how do I find "all installed drivers" and how do I trash them? Just drag them to the trash.

Delete all previous software for the scanner by going to the control panel and going add or remove programs and clicking remove beside the software. Then do the same to the cs3 (and cs2 if it is in the list too) software as you did with the scanner software. Restart your computer and go back to add or remove programs and make sure that neither are still there. Then find and update to the recent driver software for the scanner and re-install the cs3 software. Then it should work.

Firstly uninstall the drivers and any associated scanner specific software.
then get the latest driver from
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6626

you are able to get OS specific drivers from here. just select your operating system. and follow the prompts.

additionally the link above gives you the opportunity to download the relevent manual.

if you are unable use the scanner directly from the photoshop interface, the you have a couple of choices they are detailed here;
http://livedocs.adobe.com/en_US/Photoshop/10.0/help.html?content=WSfd1234e1c4b69f30ea53e41001031ab64-790c.html

the last option is to use the normal scanner software that came with your scanner, save the image then just open the image with photoshop this is a long winded way but at least you can continue working with your scanner.

hope this helps.

Delete all the drivers of the scanner loaded before.then reload the drivers again and connect the device with your pc when while loading it prompts to connect the wire. do not connect the scanner and pc before loading.connect when the message comes on the screen to connect.it will work.

Canoscan 9900F isn't recognized by any of my Mac software


you could try looking in system profiler, to see if the scanner is even recognised by the system - if not it's a connection problem.

try connecting via firewire instead of USB (or vice versa)

otherwise, see if vuescan recognises the scanner.

If you are using Mac OS X 10.5.x, then you're out of luck. That scanner is not compatible. If it is an earlier version of Mac OS, then check out the website.
